We say, “Crap.” He says, “Take a dump.” When my husband said to him, “Take it back if it craps out,” the conversation quickly ended.

When my husband told me of this exchange – we both were flabbergasted. I realized, I might associate “crap” more with the gamble, “Craps.” So, perhaps I have a luxurious twist to this word that means poop. But, “take a dump,” we both agreed has connotations, to us, that seem beyond vulgar. Both phrases mean the same thing – but one is vulgar to one while the other isn’t. How interesting?

All the world’s a stage. This keeps coming up for me. When I read as a lecture during Catholic mass, but especially when I help put on an event. Each space has its directors, its producers, its actors who all play a pivotal role. Each space has its problems and everyone has to pivot. And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
