The Everyday Grommet (humor)

I recently received a mailed catalog listing educational courses on a wide range of topics available for purchase. I flipped through the pages, skimming the titles. One caught my eye — “The Everyday Grommet.”

Hmmm, I thought, that sounds interesting. I didn’t know there were everyday grommets and special grommets. Imagine my disappointment when I read the title more carefully — “The Everyday Gourmet.”  😉  I give credit to Ubique for giving me grommet brain.

Have you ever caught yourself making assumptions or reading something wrong because prepping was on your brain?

      Not because prepping was on  the brain but because my brain today ain’t what it used to be.  Throw in hard of hearing, and it is comical the things I think my wife is telling me.  🙂

      Good morning Seasons 4,

      Yes !

      About an hour ago was reading today’s pulp Washington Post and a headline over a half page article got me to mentally readjust my schedule for this long holiday weekend so I can add salt to a group member’s well house.  The partner would be immediately flying to Greece in re the US “quiet” presence in the eastern Med. 

      I am supersaturated with hurrican prep while fatigued and working at ~ 15-20% usual level.

      The headline did not refer to Greece but rather to a national domestic political matter.

      Not to discuss but the headline is:

      “Top lawmakers condemn Greene for remarks on masks”

      I don’t think that this hasn’t happened yet. It is possible I don’t remember because preparedness thinking occupies a lot of my brain 🙂

      Your “Everyday Grommet” is very funny. It triggered Muppet brain for me because I thought Grommet was also a Muppet character and a handy fastener.

      I must now give Bob credit for giving me stapler brain after reading his post on “Fema’s latest shelter in place program.”
