This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKING…
about a speaker I heard at one of the many conferences I attended as a real estate agent. The first thing she said was, “Did you make your bed this morning?”. She proceeded to talk about starting your day being organized, etc. I guess I felt a little cocky because I did. I always have. But I’ll have to admit, being stuck at home during those long pandemic days, I thought…Why? Why should I make the bed?  No one is coming to my house. Actually, I did have a sense of not feeling organized when the bed was left unmade. Or maybe, I just felt guilty. 

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
“I just don’t understand it,” ten-year-old Becky whined.  “My sister doesn’t want me to hang out with her when she’s with her friends.”
“I guess that’s what big sisters do,” Joyce said.
“But that’s not all. She thinks I’m snoopy.”
“Why, what did she say to you?”
“She didn’t say anything. I read it in her diary.”      

 HAVE YOU NOTICED?
An egotist never talks about other people.
When one’s mind is made up, facts will only confuse them.

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED?
(Taken from The Big Book of What, How and Why)
Why do donuts and bagels have holes? Dough would not cook evenly if plopped into a frying pan. Only the outside would be nice and crisp, but the center would be underdone. Taking out the middle allows it to cook more quickly and evenly. By the way, donuts were invented over 200 years ago by the Pennsylvania Dutch, who called it an olykoek or Oily Cake.       

FREEZE ODORS AWAY
(Taken from Easy Does It)
Have an old musty smelling book? Or Tupperware with left-over odor?  Place these—and other items with odors– in the freezer overnight, and by morning they’ll be smelling fresh once more.
