Seven Things I Love (11-23-2020)

1. This Millennial Explaining Why People Use the Word “Verklempt” So Much – (I need to mention this article is two years old. Not that it matters.) Things like this makes one feel old.

I like the first one best, (a) because I am pretty sure I could pull it off, (b) I can actually crochet and (c) it’s just too spot on. – Procure a fine purple yarn and crochet yourself aContinue reading “Five Things I Love (12/16/19)”
