  4. Today I got a wooden splinter stuck underneath my fingernail, which came loose from the wooden floor. With some effort we managed to pry it loose. I've never had such a big splinter! It hurts a lot.

      Splinters can be incredibly painful! Hope it heals quick

  5. Stupid mistake #347: Just when you think you are over her, you let the girl who broke your heart help you make cupcakes for your son.

      It had to be done. The cupcakes could have been terrible otherwise.

      At a local plumbing suppliers I go to there is a big green parrot that talks and walks about on the counter. It's as big as a turkey and a bit intimidating tbh

      Hi Poet, I think you misinterpreted me a little. I was not disputing the value of the books or their ideas. I merely meant that they are dead books in the sense that nobody outside reads them; they are not popular books. Your last statment proves my point: neither of us has read them!

      that's a misleading statistic though..one would expect such books to read, they are part of the syllabus. Outside they are dead books
