Welcome today and thanks for visiting “Life and Random Thinking“. – David
Friday June 12th is a day with some heavy rain, and flashes of lightning; the rain was pounding down but now the sun is peeking out. My vehicle looks fresh and washed now – Bonus!
Word of The Day – June 12, 2020
I was watching a home renovation show and the carpenter said something looked ” Janky“. I had to look it up, now you can use it and surprise someone with my new word.
JANKY – is a slang term for something “run down“, or “poor quality” or “unreliable“. It can also be used for someone considered “undesirable” in some way.
In a sentence: My first car had rust right through the front fenders and at first glance it looked janky, but surprisingly it ran well, and was cheap on gas.
My challenge to you: Sneak Janky into your conversation today. ♥
In Canada where I live, curling and hockey
are part of our winter culture. We need to be able to watch games of both at least once a week during the winter as part of a healthy Canadian diet.
In hockey the term “Drop the Gloves” is a term that explains what hockey players do before they engage in a fight. The big bulky padded hockey gloves are thrown down in a hard “flick-of-the-wrists” before the players circle each another on ice skates and begin jabbing with their fists.
♥But that is not the “Drop the Gloves” I am talking about ♥
My son was outside in the yard, a brief break in the clouds and he was out like a flash to weed while the ground is soft and the weeds come out quickly. (Thanks son!)
I went outside to see if he needed anything”
- coffee? – No;
- banana? – No,
- hug? – he jumped up, and with a flick of his wrists threw his gardening gloves down on the ground and dashed over for a Father-Son hug.
What a wonderful feeling for me, because he “dropped his gloves“.
I will use that as an example to welcome others – I will “Drop the Gloves” – it’s an easy way and fun way to spark a positive time with someone.
DTG! (Drop the Gloves!) – start a trend that makes people smile.
