Social Etiquette = Blech

This morning, as I was walking into the kitchen area to get some water, 2 of the ladies in the office were exiting. Here’s the sequence:
Lady 1: “Good morning.”
Josh: “Hi.” (that’s the most you’ll usually get outta me)
Lady 2: “Good morning.”
…5 seconds (and several feet of walking) later…
Lady 2: “Josh!....Good morning!”
Josh: “Oh…good morning.”

Now I know I’m not ever going to win an award for Superior Social Etiquette, but I thought that my acknowledgement included both women, but apparently Lady 2 was a tad miffed that I hadn’t given her a separate, individual greeting.

In truth, I don’t really care that much, but I didn’t feel a tad awkward/jerkish like I had made some faux pas that took me a while to process. And then I thought, “Hey! I haven’t posted on my blog in a while…here’s some fodder.”

Guess who's back?

Ok, I remember when I did that last post back on Dec. 26, I considered making a "resolution" to post more regularly. I know I only have about 3 regular "readers" (more like "check-in-once-a-monthers"); maybe partially because there's rarely anything exciting to intrigue more viewers?

Anywho, wanted to share a story that Wendy doesn't know about cuz she wasn't here.

Tonight while Wendy was out, Connor was playing with one of his toy phones. He'll make it ring and then start talking to someone randomly. Tonight, in addition to his usual calls to grandma/papa and steve/nikki...he "called" ric and jeri. Here's kind of how the call went:

Hey Ric! Hey Jeri!


What you doing?


I have trains.

Oh, ok.


I ask Connor what Ric and Jeri wanted, and he says, "Ric wants chips".
