Things I've discovered in 2018 (Part 1)
I normally wait till the end of the year to write stuff like this, but I've thrown away the rule book for once and got in early - five months early to be precise. And the thing I'm sharing with you today is pretty specific (niche, you could say), and not a carry over from previous years - like, for instance, it's not good to over think stuff (things generally work out, they really do) and a biggie: neither is it wise to reach for your phone when you've had a drink...But I digress.
At school, when our history teacher, Mr. Shorrock, used to write on the blackboard he would print his words: lower case, not capitals - and not joined up. He told us why one day. 4G never normally listened to anything any teacher had to say, but Shorrock was not long out of teacher training college and he liked Led Zeppelin. "I was off school for a week with Measles", he said, "and when I came back all the other kids had been shown how to join up their letters. But I'd missed it." Hence, whenever he wrote anything down it took him bloody ages; however, it was very neat.
All because, like Mr. Shorrock and his joined up writing, nobody showed me. Until last Sunday. And, guess what? I've been back twice this week to practice my new skill, and it's only Thursday. It may not be Penicillin or even rocket science, but it's one giant leap for John Medd, I can tell you.

Poor you encumbered with all those baskets. A much easier shopping experience awaits.ReplyDelete
For me it's going to a new petrol station that you've never visited before - I stick with the one I'm familiar with (even thought the petrol's a bit more expensive).
There never were such times.Delete
Pleased you've overcome your fear!ReplyDelete
Thanks Jo! Supermarkets, suddenly, look totally different.Delete
I'm sure a few of us have one or two of these little foibles lurking in our respective back pockets, I know I have. Alyson's petrol station example is one I shared, but was thankfully forced to confront quite early on in my driving life.ReplyDelete
