Three Thing Thursday
This is a picture of a tree triangle down at Bethel Beach. I wanted to call this an "isosolese" triangle. Google slapped my wrist and told me I really meant "isosceles" and then Wikipedia corrected me even further and said I meant "scalene." Math and geometry were never my thing. English was my thing when I was younger, but evidently everything I learned evaporated into thinning hair.
Today is not Let's Discuss the Three Sides of a Triangle Day, but it is Three Thing Thursday, where I share three things and you share three things, whatever you want, anything at all.
1. This week at work I discovered that I cannot retire from my current job until the year 4,098 or thirty days after I reach the age of 102, whichever is later.
2. That assumes two major things: (a) my current job stays where it is until the year 4,098 or age 102 (Ha!) and (b) I will be able to work that long, i.e. no terminal illness, no fatal or debilitating car accidents, no accidental death or dismemberment by fiddler crabs.
3. All my fingernails on one hand broke off--at about the same time--well below the normal breaking point this past weekend. This has never happened to me before. There is only one conclusion: I have a major thyroid ailment--or worse a rare and deadly fingernail disease--that will put me out of work for a few months before I keel over, kick the bucket and croak. All before I can enjoy the golden years of retirement when I turn 102.
Now it's your turn to tell me three things, anything at all, whatever you want. Your fears, your hopes, your dreams, your worries.
Your recommended doctors for rare and deadly fingernail diseases.
