The older I get, the harder it is to undo a bad habit (or initiate a good one).
The more ballpoint pens I accumulate, the harder it is to find one that works.
The more I’m sure one of the jigsaw puzzle pieces is missing, the more certainly it is there.
This was my 26th set of "triplets" posted on my Facebook page this morning.
The second of these three drew many comments including THIS one from my friend, Clarice:
YES, But my suggestion...Get rid of a pen when it skips too much...
It is NOT going to get better...
(I know.....We have WAY too many of those at our house, too!)
I "know" that! WHY do I not DO it?
I think it's my spiritual gift of mercy showing itself - just don't want to give UP
on a skipping ballpoint! Especially those that have served me so well.
Friend Barb replied to Friend Clarice:
I love the line--- "it is NOT going to get better" --- (the truth hurts !)
And Rose weighed in saying,
You must be me! I am notorious for dodgy pens...
Dodgy pens. We definitely have our share at our house!
How about you?
