As I sat down tonight to do my regularly scheduled post with the wonderful Bushisms, I had cause to get a tad panicky as I couldn't find the darned desk calendar that has all these wise quips in it! It wasn't in the side compartment of my desk where I normally keep it -slightly pushed back so as to be out of sight, out of mind, for a certain little five-year-old who I discovered a while back was actually the culprit -swiping a couple of pages off the calendar.
For a short period of time -as I searched around other cubby holes on the desk, lifted a few papers, other assorted items -I began to fear some ghost or apparition must have come in and stolen my prized possession.
THe thought of totally taking everything off the desk, going through the side panel, putting things back -in an orderly fashion of course (not that the desk doesn't need a really good once-over clean-up job -it sure does) was something I just didn't feel up to doing tonight.
And then, lucky for me, lucky for you too, I found it! How it got behind my printer though is beyond my realm. My printer has sort of a rounded top and very little will rest on it -not safely at any rate. (Unlike my old printer which was flat on the top and held a myriad of papers, phone books, reading material -you name it!
So anyway, the hunt ended before it moved into a total "search and destroy" mode. Which means I can now post this week's Bushisms and then, retire to bed -happy in the knowledge I've done my part to educate people about the grammer and vocabulary of the notorious DUBYA.
