Today is George Washington’s birthday.
It’s also National Margarita Day.
Is there a connection?
I don’t recall the history books mentioning that George drank margaritas.
Although, after a hard day of crossing the Delaware, a Margarita would have been a nice touch.
I woke up this morning to find that I only had one earring.
I was devastated.
These earrings were a birthday gift from my mom many, many years ago.
I never change them.
My ears are allergic to most earrings.
But these ones are gold, and they have been perfect for years.
And now one of them is missing.
I shook out my pajamas and my bedding.
Yesterday I cleaned the house.
I dusted and mopped.
I did laundry and changed sheets and vacuumed.
The earring could be anywhere.
If I bought myself a new pair of earrings, it wouldn’t be the same.
Because these were a gift from my mom.
I searched the house hopelessly.
I checked the washer and the dryer.
I checked the clean laundry.
I checked the vacuum canister.
In the end, when I had given up all hope, I found it!
It was on the rug under my desk.
It must have fallen off after I had vacuumed.
Yay – I can continue to wear my mom’s birthday gift!
At our Elite Toastmasters meeting, Tim Mullins’ grammarian report was totally bogus.
Haha, just kidding.
Bogus was the word of the day.
Tim’s presentation was totally bodacious.
