When I saw this word in a list tonight, I was reminded about the time we went to good old fashioned country auction with my dad.

There was a pretty set of water glasses that I wanted.

They weren’t anything crystal or extravagant. I simply liked them.

When I had bid up to $10 and was about to lose the bid, my dad jumped in and bid $11 before I could lose the choice.

I miss my dad. And, I think of how I got the glasses every time I use them. ❤
