You are never too old to learn something new, and in true blondish fashion, I learned things in August that perhaps I should have know before such as:
- What “Wainscoting” is. I did a survey of approximately 30 people (friends, co-workers and family) and 29/30 people knew what is was. I was the 30th. Just so you don’t have to feel like a dummy, its the inner wooden covering of a wall. Thank you Shai for spelling it for me 3 times, and explaining, very slowly, what it is. To my other friends, at least one of you could have lied to make me feel better – thanks a lot
- What Tu B’Av is. It’s a minor Jewish holiday that celebrate’s love. It’s also known as the Jewish Valentine’s Day. Here is a longer, more detailed explanation in case you are interested http://www.haaretz.com/jewish/features/.premium-1.609805. Unlike Wainscoting, 4 out of 4 people asked had no clue what it was. Thank you Phil for teaching me something new.
- Last, but not least, I learned that I could sit outside, in the country for an entire afternoon with an incredible group of women and only mildly freak out about the bugs. Thank you to the hostess with the mostess – you know who you are.
