1) MUSLIN is a fabric used in quilting, most often as a back. MUSLIM is a form of worship. You might have heard of some guy named Mohammed? He wasn't a quilter.
2)For God's sake, "y'all" is short for "You all"...it makes no sense whatsoever to spell it "Ya'll"!
3)I can't believe I'm saying this: It is impolite and disgusting to celebrate death, and I do mean any death. No matter who the person is, someone is still in pain over their demise.
4)There's a way to phrase things. So, allow me to reiterate: A cheerful, flowery, and extremely "!" -laden note saying (In computer generated hand-writing at that!) "Happy International Baby Loss Day!" strikes me the same as it would strike others if I were to walk into a Klan meeting and shout, "Happy Kwanza, Mr. Grand Wizard"! That said, people grieve differently. I cry when I am able, until then I use gallows humor. And I can sound---well, really darkly, if not inappropriately sarcastic. I do try to give cues, and if it's too much I take time to heal myself and lick my wounds as it were before I face others.
And that has been another episode of "What Really Grinds My Gears".
Tune in next week to see Gordon Ramsey roasting Martha Stewart over an open pit, shouting "Piss off!"
This is a list of pet peeves. Also, using the word "Pet peeves" is a big annoyance to me. You could say it's a pet-peeve, even.
