Dashed Plan

I had a plan to do something cool for my 100th post.  I’ve seen my blogging friends do it  (here), and thought I might as well.  Alas, I missed it.  This is my 102th post (pronounced one hundred tooth).  I suppose this is all for the best, since I have nothing to give away.  But……

Lexical Learning Lesson

I just learned something important.  You can’t go willy nilly about town creating words.  I’ve been using the word “wog” to describe my lackluster running (get it?  walk+jog=wog?  It’s math.).  I’ve found myself quite amusing for the past few months as I bandied this word about.
