First of all, furniture shopping is the pits. It was easier to pick the house. :-p

Now that I've gotten that off my chest:

That this is my Obsolete skill is somewhat amusing. I remember seeing my mother's notebooks filled with this. Wonder if she still remembers how to do it?

It 's comforting to say that 'practice makes perfect'....
You are 'Gregg shorthand'. Originally designed to
enable people to write faster, it is also very
useful for writing things which one does not
want other people to read, inasmuch as almost
no one knows shorthand any more.

You know how important it is to do things
efficiently and on time. You also value your
privacy, and (unlike some people) you do not
pretend to be friends with just everyone; that
would be ridiculous. When you do make friends,
you take them seriously, and faithfully keep
what they confide in you to yourself.
Unfortunately, the work which you do (which is
very important, of course) sometimes keeps you
away from social activities, and you are often
lonely. Your problem is that Gregg shorthand
has been obsolete for a long time.

What obsolete skill are you?

And as of yesterday, Isaac has started saying No. Or rather, he vigorously shakes his head No.

He got hold of a piece of bread yesterday at dinner (we were out) he held onto it for the entire meal, carried it home, ran around with it a little bit (shedding crumbs *everywhere* and then insisted on carrying it with him into the bath. At no point would he relinquish this crust of bread, no matter what we offered in exchange. Eventually it dissolved and he was somewhat perplexed. So it was funny and annoying all at once.

Dear Isaac:

So sorry to hear of your loss of Mr. Bready.
I hope that you will soon find new friends to fill his place in your heart.

Yours, Djinn ...

But seriously, this is a bit of a lesson on how some things are ephemeral.
I still haven't learned that one, really... so I recognize it.

Yeah, it was a tough lesson. Sometimes, even when you don't let go, things are gone.

Today his 'item of the moment' was a bottle of bubbles. I was fervently hoping the lid stayed on.
