In a state

This week's Friday Five want to know what state I'm in.

1. What recently caused you to boil?
That would be Mr. Trump's irresponsible blather about postponing the November election.

2. What often causes you to freeze?
I have, over the last eight years, somehow made my way into the circles of some serious Sherlock Holmes devotees (yeah, I'm a serious devotee myself, but I'm referring to some Big Guns). These folks -- who are not only elite-level fans, but also super-accomplished individuals in their "civilian" lives -- always intrigued me from afar, but they sure can intimidate up close. Since one has to be at least a little bit well-thought-of to *get* close, you'd think I'd feel flattered enough not to be over-shy ... but I guess it's my old friend, Imposter Syndrome: what if I say that one thing that makes them realize how very ordinary I am? And so, on occasion, I freeze up.

3. When did something evaporate into thin air?
Funny you should ask. My bank balance went from quite healthy to, umm, pretty thin in one mouse click today, when I paid Three's Fall college bill.

4. What recently caused you to melt?
Watching my grandson snuggle with his soft blanket at bedtime. I babysat him last weekend, and I must say he is easy to put to bed.

5. Among United States you haven't visited, which would you most like to check out next?
One I have never, ever traveled to? Hmmm ... how about Washington state? I'd like to see Seattle.

But wait -- no condensation question?
