It looks like it has had a bite taken out of it. It was not taken care of (in my world even a paper word search book needs protected!). It is showing age in many different ways. It is still useful and able to be enjoyed. Yet, the most amusing thing? The word ‘intimacy’ was in the worst area of the book. It needed to be carefully surrounded in order to make sure the entire word was found. And parts of it were missing. Then, I am pretty sure the movie title ‘I Wanted You’ was mistyped. I found ‘I Want You’. I even went back a day or so later to see if I might sight it after a break. If you find it, let me know. ‘I Want You’ is in the last row going backwards.
So, what was so interesting for me about this particular puzzle in this book? It reminded me of myself. I am not entirely looking forward to getting back to the states. Oh, there are good things there, but I am just a useful person and I do not see myself as cherished and taken care of. I realise this is my opinion and it is skewed a bit. I do have a lovely home, medicines, food I can cook, a yard I can take care of, and a family who likes to tell me what they are doing. I also have special friends, my books, and unlimited internet…I have everything! Yet, when I saw how the word intimacy was messed up, it reminded me of myself again. Then, not finding the words ‘I wanted you’ and finding ‘I want you’ made me wonder some more. Especially since ‘I want you’ is backwards!
I get so tired of seeing my friends go off with their spouses. It tends to make me jealous. Which is silly. I know I’m not around, but it wouldn’t matter. Although, I think The Craftsman might have tried to get part of a day off the week I was supposed to get back. He really wants to see ‘Paint Your Wagon’ on a big screen and it is showing at the casino’s theatre. We probably would have gone. We’d have spent 3 whole hours together sitting next to each other! Laughing at myself. I am such a fruitcake! Freud would have a field day with me.
