Two Four letter words

February 4th, 2018 at 12:51 pm

The first four letter word is what it is doing right now as I look out the window: snow. Yuck. Ever notice how in the movies and on television that suddenly everything is wonderful when it starts to snow. Guess I missed the magic of it because I worry about shoveling, walking, and driving in it.

The second is the mother of all...the f word. No, I'm not using it, but when we did our thrift store outing on Friday, DH looks at all the kids books because he uses a lot of books when he volunteers and reads to classes. He gets the bulk of his books at the library, but there are some he likes to own since they are seasonable and sometimes he has difficulty getting them. He showed me one book that was on the shelf and said he was taking it to the cashier to show her since he bet they didn't want it on their shelf. This is a thrift store run by a church. The title was "Get the "F word" Asleep." It looked like a kid's book with the graphics on the front and the illustrations throughout, but it had all sorts of cuss words in the story. I am not lily white when it comes to my language and to be honest, many words don't really phase me unless it is taking God's name in vain, but I personally think a book like this shouldn't look like a kid's book. Someone had put a sticker over the title so I imagine someone putting it out didn't notice, but what if a child had picked it up. I am all for keeping stuff like that out of kids' hands. Anyway, the cashier agreed and immediately disposed of it. If people want those sort of books, fine with me -- just don't let them look like a picture book for kids. Mark it some how so it doesn't get confusing.

Pulled some soup out of the freezer and put it in the Crockpot to warm up for supper tonight. I tease DH about if he wants to go out to eat and he always says no. He likes saving money and apparently likes my cooking. So, maybe I'll add a third four letter word: save.

    It’s a book for adults writtenl like a children’s bedtime story book. It was kind of like “if you give a mouse a cookie.” I found it hysterical having dealt with sleep issues fro surviving children in six years. I’m far more offended by 50 Shades if Gray - guess to each their own when it comes to what is disagreeable at the thrift store. 😀

    Lauea -- I can see your point. I think the fact it was in the kids' section of the books is what bothered us.

    I've never heard of that book - it does seem like someone wasn't paying too much attention to book placement ...

    A friend of a friend wrote that book - he was a 1st time father and it was written for adults - especially 1st time parents who need some sleep and a laugh
