In a recent post from selfavowedgeek, I enjoyed the phrase "participation in the percipitation" and mentioned it to Kathy over coffee this morning. In short order, we added "for the duration of my anticipation of your expectation for a participation in the percipitation."
We're finding that one of the great benefits of retirement is morning coffee, which begins at breakfast and sometimes lasts for hours. It's almost as good as a work coffee break and produces about the same amount of productivity.
Yesterday, I kicked two old stories out to seek more rejection from the slush: "Katie McCray," and "Rescue on Radion-49."
Would you believe I missed the spelling error too. I didn't notice it until after I'd sent my reply.
For me, the really amazing thing about morning coffee is that after 39 plus years, Kathy and I still enjoy our quiet togetherness. Those mornings were rare while I was working and commuting 45 minutes to the job.
