Its funny how reading a silly throwaway line in a book can make you think, does it make me think more because of my age? Perhaps, but there are many give away lines, not plot critical but more page filling, and they seem to be the ones that generate the most thought. Today’s pearl was the line:
“I married way above my pay grade. That stuff never strikes twice”
Is it true? Is there one chance in everyone’s life to punch above their weight and to wake up with the A list? Is the marriage part critical? I married once you see and I was certainly not punching above my weight, does that mean that my chance has passed? If I should ever make a ten now is it doomed because I will never marry again? I am not quite sure if its a good or bad thing to think that we each get one chance to look up in a partnership, on the good side its not happened yet but on the bad side the sand is always running through the glass. . . .
In the news, I managed to whack my ear with the door on the way to work on Monday and its resulted in that horrible swelling that ears can do. Its times like this that you wonder why anyone in their right mind would put flappy pieces of cartilage on the outside of a large solid box but there they are, flying in the face of good design sense. Well I can say that the benefits of sea salt are not exclusive, having no access to such material I have used Sodexo catering sachets of salt to bathe my ear this week with some reasonable amount of success, save your money people table salt can do it!
