"Notes" #25

Permission vs. Courtesy

The subject of permission came up with a friend when I suggested a breakfast date. Do I really need my spouse's or partner's permission before I can decide to do something (like stop for a beer with colleagues, or set up a golf game), or can I make that decision on my own with the understanding that if she needs me, I will extend her the courtesy and change my plans.

Did You Know-Men and Woman Are Different?

I was brushing my teeth the other morning, (absolutely no connection to what I am about to say), and this thought popped into my head. Why is it that a great many men think they are always in a positive place, that they are in the best of humour, that they are ready to party and play, and that their wives/partners are just "party poopers", always finding a way to derail their fun-loving ideas?

A profound thank-you to a reader of "Notes" and author of the piece on COVID below. You now have me thinking about how I see this experience with COVID-19.

I Meet You and Then I Give Up My Friends?


"Notes" #21


You presently receive "Notes" and I hope you are enjoying the offerings. I know a number of you take the opportunity to give feedback and to express your own opinions on the various topics. That is much appreciated. Perhaps you would care to share "Notes" with a select few on your email list? If so, I have prepared a short note that you could send them to introduce "Notes" to them. (Use all or parts of the note.)

Hello (their name here).
