The Right Word in the Right Place at the Right Time by William Safire

The Right Word in the Right Place at the Right Time: Wit and Wisdom from the Popular “On Language” Column in The New York Times, Vol. 2

I had my time off for the week. Well, in case you are worried I have time off whenever I need it. On Wednesdays my boys go to their Aunts for Art lessons and then off to Awanas. I admit I often spend time going to the library and eating food all by myself.

Last night I had fast food. I DID, I DID! Then I picked up this book from the library. I’ve just read the flap and the first page so far. BTW, I always read the first page when I pick up a book. If they can’t catch me in the first page or two then I put it back. I’ll update some more later when I get the chance to read it.

  1. So are you going to tell us what kind of fast food you ate? I would like to indulge every once in a while, but I have so few choices. We usually end up at a local sandwich shop or Subway and get veggie wraps/sandwiches.

  2. You don’t want to know. It was NOT a plant based meal. I hope I didn’t loose your admiration, I guess all the stress is getting to me lately.

    Normally, I go to Subway for the veggie subs, taco bell, veggie burgers at Burger King. The teriyaki place will make me veggies or teriyaka tofu if I just ask. They are super sweet about it. It’s not on the menu, but they always have this long talk with me about it.

  3. We have a new Chinese buffet opening “soon.” I can’t wait. I guess I need to do some research to see what does/doesn’t have eggs, though. It looks like it’s going to be really big, so I’m very excited.

    Oh, and no way did I lose any admiration for you!! … over a meal? I ate meat all through my last three pregnancies, even though we had been vegan. I would probably eat meat, at least some, if it was hunted, wild, by DH, no hormones, etc. Of course, I’m not running out to buy wild, hormone-free meat, but you know what I mean. (Right?)

    We do eat seafood (some). It’s too expensive, if not impossible, to eat completely vegan in the South. I have no where to buy stuff in our small town.

    Sorry all the stress is getting to you! You are still in my prayers!
