jealous of people who have plenty of time
I had shouted: get a job
Even then those lazy Friends laughed
my plan included
the next big
the most fabulous
I asked the dictionary
more discreet too

#330 – I get that a lot now that I retired! Even so I just laugh – I’ve chosen this path and I’m not going to feel guilty!!
I know this feeling!
Consulting a dictionary is always an enjoyable option. I spent many childhood afternoons tucked up on a chair, expanding my vocabulary by reading randomly selected pages in the dictionary.
I did the same thing. Also the encyclopedia.
I like 332!
And it only tells the secrets that you ask for and does not bother you with gossip!
