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?
Interested in what you think….
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.
