Hello, Friday Fools!
Friday Tomfoolery: things come in 3's. That's something I heard a lot growing up. I learned to believe it. I've seen it. But do I see because I "believed" it or am I seeing it because it's true? I'm not sure. What I am sure about is some things once seen can never be unseen. I've been telling the boys that for years. Years, I tell you. It's how I taught them to knock before entering a room. A potential gross-out seems to be way more effective with them. You'd think they were raised by wolves or something. I have manners, I promise (although I sometimes set them aside for my Friday Fools). Chief does, too. I don't promise much these days because I feel like the boys and I have gone feral (is mildly feral a thing? If it is, then we're that--we're not totally savage). Or, perhaps, I've just lost my mind and none of this really matters--or is even real. 🤷🏻♀️ Only time will tell.
The "threes" I have for you this week are SimonMed (a medical imaging center). Not a proud moment--I didn't really do anything this week except go to doctors. How sad is that? I've turned old. 😕 Last week was the great car debacle. This week is the middle aged woes or the crumbling of an empire. Honestly, I just made that up on the fly. I don't think about myself that way, but I was thinking that we spend a lifetime doing things to ourselves and then our bodies decide that it's time to cash in the chips. I've always been healthy, but I seemed to have squandered that--the saying, "youth is wasted on the young" has leveled up in my mind. I felt that in other ways a few years back, now I'm physically feeling it. So, the "threes"--It's a revolving door at the imaging center.
I had considered not sending out a newsletter this week because I really "had no words"--I didn't know what to write. But I did find it interesting about the rule of three, and that's the only reason I'm sharing the imaging bit. I refuse to be one of those old folks who talk about the GI system like it's newsworthy. For the record--this is NOT a GI issue. I say that because it reminded me of something my dad said when we were younger about old people talking about their bowels. I know, stop. I'm not saying I'm old, either...I'm older. Maybe wiser...talking about my health issues isn't newsworthy. 🙄 But I do think the power of three is. Seeing patterns in nature and in our habits is interesting. It's just unfortunate that that's my only example. I'm hoping you give me a by on that one.
