Way back on Christmas circa 2006, my Fruncle (Friend+Uncle= Fruncle) started this blog for me as a gift. I told him he was spiritually gifted in keeping lists and that’s what my Christmas gift should be and that’s what he started the blog with: lots of lists. But now there are really random lists floating out there on my blog, like “Latin Words and Phrases.” Have you checked that page out? One of the Latin phrases I can say is “Quo modo vales hodie?” Which probably has to be the most Useless Thing I Know. Why? Because it means “How are you today?” in the Dead Language of Latin. Think about it.
Moving along, there is another page entitled “Places I’ve Thrown Up.” Fruncle just likes to remind me of that because I threw up into my new prairie bonnet while sitting backwards in the station wagon on our way out to a funeral. Fruncle’s main goal was to visit Gettysburg. My main goal was to throw up on my brother instead of my new prairie bonnet. A goal I did not accomplish. But sometimes I see the title of that page and I have to laugh. Do people come across that page and wonder why I want to list the throwing up moments of my life? I haven’t added to the list because, really, too much information! Although, if you ever want to hear about my experience throwing up in four different bathrooms (yes, in one visit!) at Dreyer’s Walk-In Care Clinic, please let me know. I can share it over dinner.
Maybe I’m just adding a disclaimer here or something. But just know some of the lists are not my lists. But I can’t quite delete them either. I think they’re cute and they remind me that my Fruncle loves me in his own listy way.
(Just a hint – anytime words show up in blue on my blog – it means you can click them and it will take you to the page that I’m discussing!)
