“…a person…that is outdated or has become obsolete because of failure to adapt to changing circumstances.”
I really don’t like the idea of being obsolete so I do a lot of googling to try and understand new thinking including a lot of words thrown around that I definitely have to look up.
Having spent years in Human Resources, and being responsible for some of those atrocious emails announcing ‘involuntary resignation to pursue other interests’ I find titles interesting.
They use to be simple – assistant, manager, director, etc. Recently I received emails signed “Chief Experience and Equity Officer” and “Public Engagement Program Manager.” I spent a minute chuckling and then thought – customer service.
I like things that are simple and comfortable including clothes. I had a t-shirt bought on a vacation that I wore periodically to sleep in, but when I pulled it out over the weekend I realized it had to go because it was even too ratty to sleep in, but it got me to thinking how old was it – 29 years. Who has a t-shirt that is 29 years old? What’s your oldest piece of clothing? After I stopped laughing, I thought about why I’d kept it so long, and it was simple. It was 100% cotton, soft, and in a simple square shape that made it comfortable.
No gardening to start the week off because it is raining. I have a long list of fall chores I’m working on, and while I’m working a few folks stop by.
If you’d like some watermelon with your lunch, come quick because this is the last Sugar Baby of the season. Will we plant them next year? Yes. Not only have they been fun to grow and delicious to eat, but the chickens love when I visit with the rind.
Since it’s raining, I think I’ll make some blackberry pie bars with a quart of blackberries fresh from the garden. A person has to keep busy, right? 🙂
Before you go, let me say thanks for stopping by because I look forward to your visit.
