First, we all know that you should not have a dog doing work on your house. It’s just wrong!
Second, the word retarded should not be in your vocabulary. It’s also wrong! Right?
It’s a word that’s considered to be “very insulting and inappropriate”. Unless you are talking about something like slowing down your speed on your bike. “I am retarding my progress“. See! There it is just a word that makes us happy. Like Pop Tarts, even though that’s two words.
So here is a story where a kid uses retarded to describe his grandparents. And I am sure that as long as you are describing retirement… it’s OK!
I will be taking a long weekend. I will be back with the blog on Tuesday. (Almost like retirement?).
It’s truly a weekend with great significance. A time to be thankful for our freedom. And a time to stop and remember those that have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our freedom. I hope you do have a great and thoughtful Memorial Day weekend. May we remember and never forget.
