What a wild and hairy day!  Guests arrived which is a DElight, into BCN and out, work in the AM, run run run, then the architect's again.....decisions decisions decisions.....


Chunky.  A work I had to define twice in the last two days.  I quite like it.  As the crowning touch of clarity I mention how pills we take are smooth, but that if they were chunky, they would quite stick in our throats.  Uncomfortably.

Then I got thinking about pills.  When young and pure I used to try not to take headache pills and the like, I have trouble even remembering why.  They somehow had the waft of establishment or something.  Still kind of baffles me.  Now?!?  Bring on the meds.  Goodness.

That said, I don't go overboard wildly, I probably take a headache pill once every two months, and cold meds twice a year, but if I want it and I'm miserable, bring it ON boys and girls.

Curious that I cannot remember why I objected.  Maybe it was that amorphous at the time too.

Hard to say.

I don't take chunky pills though, only the nice smooth ones.

No chunky pills for me either. I can't swallow them.

Not a fan of pills either. In the 60's and 70's Australia, there was an ad campaign promoting BEX "A BEX, a cup of tea and a good lie down" - the cure for the heartache that was the housewives lot. My mother downed those like sweets... we now know that BEX contained codine... totally addictive. Many women of my generation can remember their mothers taking BEX..

On another note - I am doing my TESOL course and some words are almost impossible to describe. FAITH... ??? Chucky will come up, I am sure.

Word Verification today: estessu: This is what a person from Japan says when he sneezes "estessu"... God Bless you!

The day you’re tempted to go, “…running for the shelter of a mother's little helper…it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day…” may you revert to your no pills philosophy. ;)
Although as busy as you are, can’t see you ever tempted to do that!

If your life depended on it I am sure you would take even the chunky ones without hesitation. You could always try it out first with a margarita or similar. ;-)

In adverts over here they described a Yorkie Chocolate bar as chunky. So now the word has me salavating like a Pavlov dog!

Hula, glad to hear it!

Lulu, with practice there are more and more words that you can manage. You also find new ones to be stumped by. Prepositions are my personal favourites, things like 'as far as' I am concerned....that 'as far as' BRUTAL!

Beth, I will confess, I am talking about headache pills and cold meds here....anti-biotics when necessary, nothing to keep me going through the day.

Swenglishexpat, indeed, if I had too....

Boo, there are some peanut butters that are called chunky too which has a fairly pavlovian effect on me as well.
