Bloor Due


Bloor Due?

Has one of the resident artists of Opera flipped her lid?

I said "Bloor Due" several more times trying to figure out what the heck I was saying to myself. I was just getting ready to leave for a short job duty, when I'd stopped for a second to go over the list of projects in my head. I'd just added this one. Bloor Due.

After another minute, I realized what it was.

I wanted to paint my door blue.

I know for certain aging has something to do with this.

Oh why can't I still be a Ching Spricken?!

About pam

I am retired from real 9 to 5 jobs. I do my artwork and occasionally write poetry. In September 2010, I moved to Fargo, ND after spending 60 years in Phoenix, Arizona. Now, five years later, July 2015, I'm back in Arizona. And yes, I love the heat!

    Almost nobody can say "Bed and Breakfast" reliably. The first word will frequently become "bread".After a couple of drinks, you can address a policeman as "ossifer."I've enjoyed this thread. :up:

    Hmmm … something about stomach flu, as like as not.You folk who type with more than one finger are extremely prone to make that mistake … I avoid that error by typing with one finger of one hand only … the thumb of the other hand is for the shift key and other miscellaneous tasks like holding a sandwich. My Scottish Lassie is forever getting letters out of order; she types quickly, and her left hand is considerably quicker than her right (she's left-handed), and frequently wins the race to the next key before it should, thus transposing the letters.And it should not be thought that typing with one finger is slow; I have frequently beaten the touch-typing tests well before the time allotted, with zero errors. I used to converse with a wonderful girl in Brasil, whose English was nearly equal to my own, but she told me that I typed so quickly that she had trouble keeping up. She disappeared, and left what can only be called an "aching void" in my heart.Sigh! Sorry about that.

    In contrast to my flawless typing of yesteryear, now I have the habit of substituting letters from the right hand with letters from the same position on the left hand and vice versa. The "G" and the "H" are the biggest Swapperoos, but it can happen with any letters.Then what's weird is that sometimes I'll be briskly typing what I'm thinking and I'll suddenly type NOT an incorrectly-spelled word, but an entire other word. Just last night, I forget what word I was supposed to have typed, but instead, I literally typed — :left: :right: "Shit." :yikes: And that was most definitely NOT what was supposed to have gone there. It was as if my fingers were reading a couple thoughts ahead that I was supposed to get to πŸ˜† or they were repeating a thought I had already addressed. :whistle:

    Hi πŸ™‚ Yes! I remember once my grandmother wanted to say 'kapyny yap' (close the door), but she said 'yapyny kap' πŸ˜€

    Dave, I've said exactly that. The new Toy Story 3 is out and I have never been able to say Toy Story unless I say it slowly. It comes out Toy Stoy.Originally posted by Suntana:

    This I do too Carlos. Originally posted by derWandersmann:

    This is why I don't work for lawyers anymore. Of course, now the computer will correct things for you, or at least let you know when there is a spelling error. You must be the fastest one fingered typist I've ever known!Originally posted by eyemreli:

    That's cute sounding and funny too. I bet everyone wondered what she meant.

    πŸ˜† you are a ring shpicken!! I was in a car accident last year, it is now my excuse although I don't recommend it. my mother fell and broke her wrist as well, whenever we mix things up we have a little exchange. the accident?! yep. the fall!? uh huh. πŸ˜‰

  8. PainterWoman says:

    πŸ˜† I can always say it was because my sister dropped a rock on my head when I was an infant. True story. I was about two months old and she was two.

    There was a young fellow named Hall,Who fell in the Spring in the Fall.'Twould have been a sad thingIf he'd died in the Spring,But he didn't … he died in the Fall.

    I can't claim credit for it, other than to say that I have one of those memories that latches on to every perfectly useless bit of information that happens by, while important information is ignored. The limerick is by the form's populariser, Edward Lear.

    πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜† GREAT STORY!!!!!

  19. PainterWoman says:

    Thanks Henar. I've been saying these funny things more often and this was the first one I remembered to write down.

    I'd like to meet your Mark friend, MCLeod. He sounds like a fun person to know. BTW—those are called senior moments, when your mind goes blank like that. :devil: πŸ˜†

  21. PainterWoman says:

    Yup, I've had those blank moments too but it's happened ever since I can remember. I think my brain is trying to organize so many different subjects that it sometimes gets overloaded and shorts out….or something. A professor said it sounded like my synapses weren't connecting. πŸ™„ πŸ˜† Sounds good to me.

  23. L2D2 says:

    Conundrum, McLeod. Next time that happens, pull over, turn around, go back to where you started—-you'll remember. Of course, bandits have long gone, but that's OK. You tried. πŸ˜†

  24. derWandersmann says:

    As I get older, I find myself wondering about hereafter.I get up, go into the next room, and wonder what I'm here after.

  25. PainterWoman says:

    Yeah, I probably should get tested….for something. I'm always going back and forth in my house trying to figure out what it was I was doing or looking for.Hi Zulia. Sometimes when I'm leaving a store or something, I'll go to say either 'Thanks' or 'Thank You' and it comes out 'Thanks you'. I just smile and keep walking as if it's usual. Then I laugh when I get outside because it sounds so dorky.

  26. Zulia says:

    Hehe its a good story Pam! Hmm.. I dont think age has to do with it! I get mixed up sometimes too! Just yesterday, I wanted to say to my pal, my mum sends her regards but I said my mum sends her regrets! Hahahaha

  27. L2D2 says:

    Pam, I worked for so many years, and was so used to saying "Thank you" when I hung up the phone, that I still do it sometimes. I may have been talking to a friend or a stranger, but before I hang up I say thank you. Comes out sounding very strange sometimes compared to the phone conversation! Automatic, ingrained habit.

    In Vietnamese we usually say in that way for fun. I can sing a song with all words spoken like that

    Really? That'd be fun to hear a song with turned around words like that. I'm sure there are some here but I've never heard them. I don't do it on purpose but it's funny anyway.
