a poetical response following close observation: pebbles for rivers of stones
That's because subconsciously you're expecting this one to do the same.
I know - but how long will it take me to learn otherwise!!
Old habits die hard, don't they? This small stone speaks volumes about human nature. Love it.
This made me smile because I've just had an instantaneous experience of how ingrained habits can become: I went up stairs to measure the mattress (to buy a new one) and automatically took my slippers off at the side!
hahaha - yes, old habits die hard. Thanks, made me chuckle at the little things we do.
Ha! And I wonder if I will ever stop pressing the wrong button on my new clothes dryer just because it's in the same spot as the correct button on the old one. Nice stone!
Perhaps even more worrying is the light switch I regularly reach for that has NEVER been there, in thirty-seven years!
