Don’t Worry, Make Money – The Meh-o-Meter

October 1, 2021

OMG! It’s October! Already! I thought summer just ended! That’s a lot of explanation points! I mean, exClamation points! See, my husband makes fun of me when I use dictate software like Siri because I SAY exPlanation point and it prints an exClamation point. Confused yet? Me, too. I thought they were the same thing. In fact, there is NO SUCH THING as an exPlanation mark. I mean point.

But I digress.

This book was okay. It went bye-bye in that last big purge I told you about… and I’m okay with that. “Okay” is obviously the word of the day.

That’s me, letting my emotions do the talking for me, I know.

Here’s the thing: it’s not a bad book. It’s just… well, listen to this description from the book jacket: Richard Carlson provides one hundred new strategies for living more fully and worrying less as a means of attracting more wealth and abundance in our lives.

  1. Oh, wait, it didn’t print! Neither time! It was three existing punctuations (punctuatii?) put together — why wouldn’t they DOOOO it? Sniff. You were the last person who didn’t think I was crazy, too 🤣

  2. Yes, I ended the sentence with it. Um, right before the exClamation marks

    You use it when you’re exPlaining, so it was just perfectly placed, right there, um, if you noticed 🤪🙄
