What doesn’t kill you makes you decide that NEXT time, you are choosing checkers over chess when playing death for your life.  Chess is just too stressful.  Then again, checkers is very risky.  Maybe a nice game of Parcheesi.  (For fans of “The Seventh Seal”)

Hot or cold shower?

What usage came first for defining the word, shower?  Is it the shower of a heavy rain or is it the shower that one takes after a long day’s work?  Could it be the shower of good things coming to someone as in showering them with gifts?  Then there’s a meteor shower.

I’m sorry, but these are the kinds of things that keep me up at night.
