I'm guessing anterior.

I learned what the term "bling-bling" means. It's a hip-hop term meaning expensive jewlry or other accoutrements, and also a lifestyle build around excess spending and ostentation. I had been hearing it more and more latey. Good Lord, what's this world coming to when hip-hop terms make it into the dictionary? Does that mean I'm a stick in the mud?

I learned that when wearing glasses for the first time in your life, not to try to walk downstairs & talk to someone at the same time. I executied a beautiful fall last week as I was coming downstairs & talking to TC about one of his friends. He was standing at the bpttpm of the stairs & wound up breaking my fall. Luckly neither of us was hurt.

BJ, I got mine last Monday & I didn't really realize how bad my eyesight was until I put them on. Now I know why everyone on TV was always so furry looking.

Actually - it's not anterior - it's Arterial. Normally, blood is drawn from a vein for most blood test ... sometimes, like if a person having breathing problems and they want to know how much oxygen is getting into the blood from the lungs - they will draw the blood from an artery.

How much does it hurt? In theory, an arterial stick "should" hurt less ... since there are less nerve endings to disrupt ... in practice - it depends on the person doing the sticking.

What new thing

Today I learned that a person can get really really distraught when all her flowers die from lack of rain. I talked to them weeded them and did all I needed to do for them , but they all died any way. Oh well there is always tomorrow. I am going to install rain barrels under my down spouts to catch any rain fall we might get until next summer. Then come next spring I will pour on a little oil to form on top of the water SO THE MOSQUITOES WILL HAVE NOWHERE TO LAY THEIR LARVA. gONNA GIVE IT A OOD TRY.
