Mostly, my work is fiction, but today, this post is about real life.
Last week, real life was full of adventure and self discovery.
The other day, one of my ducks lost a toenail and was bleeding pretty good. I needed to monitor him so I filled the tub with cold water and shut the shower door so he could get a proper soak. ( It’s freezing here, so there is no usable pond.)
I felt compelled to constantly check on him to ensure he was not going to drown.
Total facepalm. He is meant to be in water.
So, I brought up that it has been cold here. I learned a valuable lesson about clarifying expectations. When I gave directions to shovel the walk, I did not specify where we were walking.
We do frequently walk in the yard so the walk was shoveled to some extent.
Here is the real conundrum of the week. I had the distinct privilege of playing connect four. My last play was placing the yellow playing piece in between two diagonal rows, making five in a row. I declared myself the winner. Undeterred,
My opponent placed a red playing piece on top, connecting four. I was notified that the game is called connect four, not connect five.
My question to you is, who won?
