Yeah, I’m adding words to photos now. Not sure why. Maybe because it seems more professional. Or educational. Or decorational. Well now I’m just making up words. Like earlier today…I had an incident with a spider, a fly, and a worm. So, I told the kids that it was an “insectual” kind of day. Sounded like something entirely different once the word escaped my mouth. I guess that’s what I get for not thinking before I speak. Do you think the word “insectual” will ever make it into the dictionary? It’s gonna be big! Feel free to use it if you have incidents with insects. It’ll make people laugh. Or at least raise their eyebrows….
