Happy Monday!!! And it’s nobody’s birthday today, so far as I can tell, so to differentiate it from all the other Mondays I am celebrating “peanut butter day”.
Here is where you get to ask me anything you want from “how are you celebrating peanut butter day?” to “can you tell me the history of peanut butter day?” Just keep swinging back here all week as you think of new questions!!!
Now, question for you! Inspired by me and my father yesterday. My father, who almost never makes a mistake or does something thoughtless, left the car blinkers on the whole time they were having dinner with me yesterday. Meaning a very tense moment when we weren’t sure if the car would start or if we would have to figure out how to charge a hybrid battery. And that same day, I accidentally posted the DCIB Book Club post a week early. With that in mind, what is the dumbest thing you have done while not thinking straight because you were grieving?
I can give many examples! My sister and I ran over my grandmother’s mailbox two days after my grandfather died because we messed up backing out of her ENORMOUS driveway and somehow skidded halfway across the lawn. The day of my grandmother’s wake, I forgot I was supposed to work a shift until my boss/friend called me because I was an hour late (she didn’t make me come in, she wasn’t an ogre, but the point is I totally spaced on my work schedule and I NEVER missed shifts). And of course, you were all here when Grandpa died a month ago and my brain went out the window and isn’t fully back yet. Oh wait, two months ago! Because it’s January now. And that’s 2 months from November. Yes?
Follow up, less personal question: What Indian film Jodi is most like chocolate and peanut butter?
Shahrukh and Anushka! Because he is bitter and strong, and she is solid and filling and nutritious.
