I Feel It In My Fingers, I Feel It In My Toes!


Why is a thumb sticking up seen as a good thing … in some countries?
Why is the middle finger sticking up seen as a bad thing … in some countries?

It seems all individual fingers … and different combinations of the 5 available fingers … and combinations of individual fingers, from both hands, have different meanings to people in different countries.

Is there somewhere that uses toe language?

If not, I guess toes are meaningless.

double note: sticks and stones may break my bones, but the flaming well sharpened dictionary full of words sitting in that archer’s bow scares me too!


Today #82

I don’t think I did any good deeds today.
… no badges for me, I guess.
There’s always tomorrow!

Good Deeds

Sometimes I perform random acts of kindness … or as I say … “random kinds of actness” which sounds like a type of acne or something, but I say it anyway.

Yesterday while walking through a crowded shopping center I spotted a rogue balloon sticking to the ceiling with a father longingly looking up at it  and a son sadly looking at the limp string in his hand.

I stopped, jumped up, retrieved the balloon for them, and walked away.

This seemed to make them quite happy.

I guess I should have popped the balloon so it wouldn’t happen again.


note: Why is it called “blowing up a balloon” when it doesn’t pop?

double note: photo of the amazing curved escalator in Landmark Tower Yokohama. I’ve blogged about this amazing escalator  before.
