Today I learned

There are two meanings to ‘Blood is thicker than water’. One is that family will stick up for family. The other is that the phrase is a truncated version of ‘The blood of the covenant is thicker than than water of the womb’. Meaning bonds formed in hard times or battle are stronger than one’s blood family.

The second sounds very middle eastern (like my enemy’s enemy is my friend).

Speaking of water…water closets, that is…I’m currently on four medications, and one of them requires I drink 40 ounces of fruit juice a day. My bladder has never had such a workout!

So, a little ‘TIL’ and a little ‘TMI’.

You’re welcome.

    Not qualified to comment on ‘blood’ since I have none… but I have found that dear friends are closer to me than family. Again, might be the no blood relatives thing…

    Hope you get well soon… 40 ounces of juice!

    And Happy Mother’s Day!! :D

    Pam…have you ever thought of doing the DNA thing that could help you find your ancestry? Or maybe even distant relatives?
