I often use the saying, "Sometimes I open my mouth and my mother comes out." I am finding that is true more and more often. Then I look around to try and find my mother until I realise that it was, in fact, me who said that. Then I shake my head sadly.
When teaching my class about how technology has changed communication, I found myself beginning many of my anecdotes with, "when I was your age..." I feel so old.
I never thought I would use those words in that order to begin a story. Never.
On Friday, my nieces, aged 3 and 17 months, came over to play. We love to paint. So we painted. The next morning, while on the phone to my sister, I told her, "there is purple paint on my toilet seat."
That's one thing I never thought I would say.
We both laughed loudly.
Perhaps we should never say never.
