Thinking Out Loud


I can tolerate most things in life. Learned that as a child. There was a lot to tolerate.


But when it comes to whining, I have trouble with that. 


Wonder if wasps whine?

  3. Whining doesn't do any good and only annoys the people around you. So, I'd have to agree.
    No Whining!

  4. Nice action shots of that wasp!

    And remember to ask, "Would you like some cheese with that whine?"

  5. Nobody should whine. Whining is to complaining what cold tea is to Jack Daniels. Not that you shouldn't complain; complaining's fine, especially if accompanied by liberal doses of Anglo-Saxon.

  6. Jim! You don't know what you're missing. A good whine, in a sympathetic ear, can do wonders. The technique, of course, should not be overused, because it then looses its effectivness.

  8. No, wasps don't whine--they SCREAM. I know this because I distinctly heard a tiny shriek earlier today when I smashed the one who flew past me in the kitchen. I did remember to mutter "Hare Krshna" just before I nailed him so that his little waspy soul would go to nirvana. See, I'm not completely heartless!

  11. In complete agreement -- about tolerating and whining. (A wasp nearly killed me; I don't think they whine.)

  12. It's the whiney tone of voice that grates, not the whine itself.
