Happy Tuesday Readers
I have been trying to grab some bike photos for a few months now (I have been inspired by some bloggers and their bike photos – esp. some of Sue’s last year).
I only have a handful of bike pics so far. One photo is this pair of bikes – where the fancy whitewall tires caught my eye (and I thought of those big Caddies that used to sport whitewall tires)
Because it is Two 4 Tuesday – here are two more bikes.
Is that a white wall on the back tire? (how eclectic):
The next photo is what I call “Resting Blue” – or maybe “Quiet Busy” – because there is a lot to take in.
There is a trinkets store in Winter Park, FL that sells old postcards with artsy patches stapled on – so you get two items for your single purchase:
Oh, and have you seen these disposable chargers with little phrases tagged on?
“Chill, babe. We’re good.”
Speaking of phrases…
found this little chart last week and a few of these really stood out.
#14 reminds me of Buffalo, NY folks who sometimes say, “You’s guys” (and down south some say “all y’all”)
#24 I had wrong because I prefer to say “hone” and not “home” – but I get it…
#19 I disagree with because I have completely accepted the word “conversating” (and even used it for a book title two years ago)
Here is one more phrase people get wrong:
Just Deserts vs. Just Desserts
I got this one wrong.
I mentally added the extra “s” and read it as “Just Desserts.”
It reminded me of something like an Aha! moment – a time maybe when desserts were a plenty – like one of those parties where it was all gourmet desserts- ya know? A happy, celebratory type of time??
However, taking off an “s” gives us “desert” … to give us “Just Deserts,” which means “that which is deserved.”
From here I learned that “just deserts” is a phrase rooted with the “last refuge of an obsolete meaning of desert—namely, something that is deserved or merited. But because most modern English speakers are unfamiliar with that old sense of desert, the phrase is often understandably written just desserts.”
What about you? Do you have a phrase on the list that stood out to you or reminded you of someone?
Do you have any good bike photos? Need a postcard and patch? – if so, let me know and I will send you the address for the store.
PS Remember: “Don’t Panic” “Chill, babe. We’re good.”
