Weekend grook* greeting, week 37

feet-1434700_1920.jpg… the grook this week reminded me of “det var inte med mening” (it was not done on purpose) given as an explanation instead of an apology when something goes wrong.… and yet I think that in most cases would have more of the desired effect if the latter was selected as response…  but guess it’s better than just shrugging ones shoulders as if it didn’t matter….


Some darling people you will meet
are plain disaster-prone,
and will always fall on someone’s feet,
and never on their own.

…  well…  I guess Piet is referring to something slightly different here..  maybe Gladstone Gander (Alexander Lucas) in Donald Duck (Kalle Anka) would be an example of such a “darling” person..  :-p

… anyway…  I hope you’ll avoid other peoples feet this weekend.. neither trod on others or being trod on…

* Grook taken from “Collected Grooks II” by Piet Hein
