3 a.m. Thoughts

Three D’s (dealbreakers)
Deceit death divorce

Three M’s (roles in life held)
Miss Mrs. Mother

Three T’s (feelings experienced)
Traumatized threatened tediousness

Why do 3 a.m. thoughts have to be about above?

To escape blasphemous uninvited PTSD transient
train of thoughts I quickly transported myself
elsewhere.
For fun I did a few rounds of ‘homonym’ quizzes.
Each one I scored 5 out of 5 which put me in the
‘smart’ category.

It appears testing one’s grammatical skills (even
during early a.m. hours) proves beneficial.

Tired brain and back to sleep for a few more hours.

National Grammar Day – March 4th

Earlier this week I wrote a post – topic Mother’s loss of a child.

The next morning a medical news article stared me in the face – topic blood types.

Curious??

Yes of course I became anxious to learn which blood type found thru studies performed

may lower risk of severity or worse in the current health crisis.

The answer was RH negative, the alien DNA which only 15% of the population

worldwide (of which I’m one) possess = a minority in classes of blood factors.

Countless times the word ‘may’ appeared throughout this article which I did

read in its entirety.

Percentage of immunity??

Comforting words – I think not.

Wonderful I’d been reminded of another loss – a son taken from me before birth

year 1969 due to this blood factor.

Tears flowed..

I wondered how much more of these horrendous memories triggered by words

written I shall have to endure in this lifetime.

The reality is 100% cruel punishment as I recalled the before, during and aftermath

of giving birth to a stillborn son who’d passed two weeks prior to delivery.

My shoulders once strong from weightlifting are slowing weakening a combo of

lack of anaerobic exercise and emotional stress.

I tell myself ‘never give up’ – I read all those nice affirmations and inspirational quotes.

Reality – going it alone in Golden years ‘sucks’.

The past two days I’ve had no choice other than tend to errands – need of nourishment

and medicines.

Yesterday afternoon I finished reading the second psychological thriller novel by the

same author.

Today I took a long nap.


Now what on earth does all the above relate to?

Today while driving from one location to another, the country music station announcer

stated it was ‘National Grammar Day’.

I checked online and ‘yes’ March 4th is the designated day for grammar.

Uumm what about the word ‘may’ that appeared countless times in that article.

Turns out it’s a modal verb that’s used in conjunction with a main verb to

express possibility thereof.

Overwhelmed at this time, I ‘may’ decide to change from my former goal

and write about romantic fantasy.

After all the mind can wander to unknown places and dabbling in fiction

might be fun.

Adverbs – Usage

Common knowledge readers find news articles informative, bothersome, rhetoric

and on occasion humorous.

The first three categories from different printed publications constitute the

abundance of news selections.

It’s quite obvious to the average daily reader how little humor is found betwixt

penned lines unless the cartoon section is their first choice.

Laughter is good for the soul and I managed a few chuckles over the weekend

when I brought up an article beginning with the adverb ‘allegedly’.

I wonder if the layout editor of the popular newspaper created space for

this unbelievable hilarious read or by job description inserted it to fill up

a page.

Either – or – twas rather funny to envision the event defined below.

A voyeur, referenced as peeping Tom, had been arrested on scene of

a gym down south after falling through the ceiling of the women’s

locker room.

It seemed he received quite a bit more than he’d bargained for when

the locker room’s ceiling gave way and he fell approximately ten feet.

Sadly, he fell onto a 70-year old woman who thankfully attained no

injuries.

As a former gym member for years, I can attest woman aren’t exactly

weak and this woman along with several other patrons apprehended

the deviant prior to the arrival of law enforcement.

By definition a peeping Tom is referred to as a man who secretly observes

women undressing and derives sexual pleasure.

Arrested on site yet article states ‘allegedly’ since although accused he’s

yet to be proven guilty and convicted.

Yes, the good citizen has to stand by and watch how the system works or

fails.

Innocent until proven guilty!

Laughable since few people without malintent hide in the ceiling of gym

locker rooms.
