Random Thoughts and Notes iv
I try to keep my house clean enough so people are comfortable. I try to leave it dirty enough so people are comfortable. I hope everyone’s comfort zone is fairly wide.
With family spread over great distance, I don’t travel much just for pleasure. Most trips are for visiting family. Maybe people who travel the world live near their families? I live in what to half the family would be a foreign country, in the French countryside. Many would find that “so romantic”. I have lived in the same house for over 20 years now whereas when I was younger we moved about every 3 years. Nevertheless, maybe I should consider my everyday life to be a trip.
I heard some “music” on the radio the other day; it sounded like he was drumming on the piano. I wasn’t allowed to do that when I was little.
I couldn’t figure out why the colours of my clothes are fading when I so carefully wash and dry them inside out. Then I realized I wear them right-side out.
Muttering to myself about a phrase I saw in a comment—“I foregoed it.” That doesn’t seem right but would you say “I forewent it”? That doesn’t seem right either. One does say it was a foregone conclusion, but I foregone it? No, I think not. Perhaps the problem is with the fore part. The opposite would be aft. I aftgoed it? No, no, no………. This is getting daft. Maybe it’s one of those verbs with bits missing and one should just stick to the infinitive. I have decided to forego it.
