Word Puzzles …….

The great thing about word puzzles is that it expands your vocabulary ….. apparently. Today I learned the word AXION

Hmm …..

I am, as usual, early for an appointment and discovered that the small coffee shop I often frequent to kill time has technical problems and therefore I have been forced to enter another coffee outlet…. I hesitate to use the word cafe. Sitting next to me is a large man. He has brought a tray of potentially lethal objects to the table. He has eaten….

Am I justified in finding this disgusting?!

Probably not ….. I admit that on occasions I can consume an entire jumbo bag of wine gums in less time than it took me to open the pack. So let those who are without sin etc. as someone once said. However I take my guilty pleasures in private ….. does that make me feel better….. not really.

Buon appetito !
