Why do we say the things we say?
« on: December 15, 2022, 02:07:25 pm »
I tend to say to my beloved 'be careful', when she's out on her bike and driving the car. Yesterday, she gave me a royal serve and said;
 "please stop telling me to be careful...you know I'm careful...you don't have to say it every time I drive the car...I know it's icy...I know to be careful" 

 :huh: :-[  Thinking about it, she's right. It just makes me feel better is all.

I just said it again. Got glared at!

Do you have any foibles? Things you can't help saying, even when you know it will annoy someone.

There's a couple of posters who could throw out a list or two. Not pointing the finger at anyone though  :wink:

I'll mishear things gf says and they'll be really inane or stupid, so I'll tell her what I heard initially cuz it sounds funny or strange and she'll say "Why would I say that? I'm not stupid."

Like, way to miss the point. hahahaha. The human brain is very complex, dear. We hear, process and then refine things subconsciously and sometimes they get garbled. I don't think you actually said that. The thing I misheard is simply weird/funny. RELAX.

Yeah, my misses shouts my name out several times a day from rooms I'm nowhere near. Then often says 'nothing' when I arrive, or when I don't respond because I can't be arsed responding to being summoned from a different galaxy, I get "Didn't you hear me?', or "why didn't you come".  :lipsrsealed:

Alright, one more. It's past 7 and I want my dinner. Also, TV time.

I can't leave the house without a handkerchief in my pocket. A strange foible since childhood. I'll even go back and get one if I'm not far away, when driving or walking. Nothing worse than seeing rockets being blown everywhere, sleeves for tissue, or fingers up the nostril. Just gross. No Marti, I've always been this way!

"This was filmed in Canada."

My Korean friend gets irked at my constant mentioning of locations i recognize. I often suddenly realize i know that river valley in the wilderness of "Montana" as a great hiking and camping place in Alberta; that back alley car chase in "Seattle" i have walked through in Vancouver; that art gallery entranceway in "St. Louis" is in Toronto, hosting a Rodin exhibit when i visited; etc.

I don't plan to say it. I just immediate react when i pleasantly recognize a place i have been to and hadn't expected to be in the movie. But it seems a lot of Hollywood movies we watch together are partially filmed in Canada.

Help others, especially animals. Say what you think, being considerate of others. Appreciate more than deprecate. Teach well and jump on teachable moments. Enjoy Korea as it is, without changing it. Yet, at times, change your life for the better. "The most important [thing] is to have a good day."

He seems to get irked at or dislike things you do in all your mentions of him.  :undecided:

Off topic, but that is one of my favourite movies.  I recognized loads of Toronto places in that masterpiece.  A bit of interesting movie trivia was that near the end of the movie, they actually had a scene that was supposed to be Toronto, but was filmed in St. Louis!  The Gateway Arch was clearly visible in the background.

Oh shit, now I feel embarrassed. That'll teach me for being so smug.  :-[

As penance, you, Hangook, can take the piss out of me next week with no retaliation.  ;D
