Nagging is the repetition of unpalatable truths.
~Edith SummerskillWhat an interesting name has Edith! Is it summers kill or summer skill?
Okay, I've been nagging. (I just know that you're shocked and find it difficult to believe that sweet me could be guilty of such a thing.)
The winds have been howling and I really didn't want John out on the ladder today. As I was making my case at the breakfast table and in mid-sentence, Crrrrrr...aaaaaaa...cccckkkkkk, down came a huge limb before our eyes. I've rarely felt so vindicated or had my nagging so well punctuated, though my niece may differ with that assessment as she's forever telling the story about the day I said something I should not have and there was a clap of thunder so sudden and violent that I jumped up onto the sofa apologizing to the Lord as I went.
Anyway, I shall miss this branch so massive that it could have been a tree all on its own. It has been featured here before...
And here is how it looks after this morning (forgive the reflections)...
So, tell me, do you ever nag? If you do, what does your husband think of it?
