Welcome to Thursday, where I share three random things and you do the same. Well, you don't have to do the same, you could share one thing or five things or twelve things. They could be random, related, quasi-related or written in another language, por ejemplo.
I'll go first.
1. Although the picture above looks like it was taken on some desolate prairie in the Midwest, in fact it was taken on some desolate marshland of Bethel Beach in Mathews County. Right there where the sky meets the grass is the Chesapeake Bay.
2a. Today at work, at approximately 9:00 a.m., I pulled a bag of roasted peanuts (with the shells on) from my food drawer. (A food drawer is a drawer full of food for emergencies, such as it's 9:00 in the morning and you want some peanuts, daggone it. The food drawer also holds organic cranberry oatmeal and a few cans of low-calorie soup that will never, ever be eaten but will make nice museum pieces in a few decades.

The air was cool but not cold, the smells were earthy, and the sun going down put on a show. I inhaled slowwwwly and deeply and leaned my head back, closing my eyes and focusing on the birds. (Insert sound of a needle being pulled off a record.) Then I accidentally hit the spot on my lip that was previously poked with a push pin while sitting at work hurriedly picking my teeth before anyone walking by my office could see what I was doing.
Now it's your turn. Please share three things, or twenty things, whatever you want, anything at all. But whatever you do, be careful when picking your teeth with a push pin at work. Things can turn ugly fast.
