This was a discussion started on twitter by @kvetchingeditor and it has led to an interesting exchange of information. After eating meat we are supposed to wait a certain period of time until we can eat dairy. There are those that wait one hour. People wait three hours. Or into the sixth hour or six hours. I used to wait three hours – more or less standard where I grew up. Since my recent marriage I wait into the sixth hour.
How long do YOU wait after eating meat, and why do you wait that amount? Do you know the sources for this?
You are given a gift of money by a relative for a birthday or anniversary. You take that money, go into a store and buy something for someone else with that money. You also know that the person who gave you the money absolutely dislikes the person for whom you are buying a gift. Is it wrong to spend that money on that person? Or is it your money once you have received it and you can spend it then on whom you like?
I am grumpy. Waking up at the crack of dawn to go jogging this morning was nasty. I awoke 3 minutes before the alarm from disturbing dreams and it took extreme effort to drag my lazy behind out of bed. It was raining and my throat is scratchy. I am home now, had my juice. Have to go wake up the boys for school – and all I want to do is go back to bed and hide till I feel better.
Happy Freaking Mother’s Day – hope the kids remembered.
