3 C’s: Clutter, Cosmopolitan, and Chocolate

January 12, 2022

Dear Kim,

Today is One-Liner Wednesday and the prompt is clutter.

I find great comfort in clutter.



My cluttered desk in Greene (2011) The clutter has moved with me to Cooperstown.

Dear Kim,

I had to look up the definition of the word cosmopolitan today. It’s the word prompt for the day, and cosmopolitan is one of those words that people use — quite honestly, I don’t think I ever have — but I’m not 100% sure of the meaning.

For the record, says that cosmopolitan means “free from local, provincial, or national ideas, prejudices, or attachments; at home all over the world.” It wasn’t quite what I expected.

Also for the record, I think I am NOT cosmopolitan. I’m quite provincial ( definition: “belonging or peculiar to some particular province; local”). I have such deep roots here in upstate New York that I think if someone tried to uproot me, I would shrivel up and die.

That’s about all I’ve got for you today.

Dear Kim,

I looked up the benefits of chocolate today.

According to, “Chocolate is the perfect antidote for anyone who has been overcome in the presence of Dementors, which suck hope and happiness out of their surroundings.”

Please send chocolate.



p.s. You don’t really have to send chocolate. In fact, please don’t. I want to be a reasonable size for Helen’s wedding.

And dementors aren’t real.

But there are plenty of real things which suck hope and happiness out of their surroundings.

  1. Dear Sally,

    Dementors are real. They just might go by many other more ‘cosmopolitan’ names.

    Sending chocolate.

    I love you, my friend…

  2. You made me laugh today – first, just seeing your cluttered desk from Greene. (I can make a desk cluttered quicker than quick.) And yep- I also want to be a reasonable size for my daughter’s wedding so I am not wanting chocolate to show up on my doorstep either. 🙂

    So glad you write.
