I've Started Te Araroa
It's been a tough first two days. Enjoying it but am sore and a little emotion.
This joke came up in a conversation with my wife, Irene Martin, while we sorted Christmas cookies.
DON’T BE SORE, BUT I SORT OF SORTED MY ASSORTED SORES BY SORDID MEANS WHILE I SOARED INTO THE WILD BLUE YONDER. What’s so funny about this? This joke is not really supposed to make too much sense. It is grammatically correct and the situation is sort of possible, in a remote sort of way. But mostly it’s a tongue twister and a way to show you some of the different meanings of the common words SORT and SORE, as well some homonyms and past tense forms that are kind of related to them. Let’s start with the word “sore,” s-o-r-e. As a noun it can mean a wound or blister, something wrong happening on your skin, like a “cold sore,” for instance. As an adjective it has several meanings; it refers to an ache from over- straining, for example, my arm is sore from too much tennis.” The other meaning of the adjective “sore,” is to be angry. But there is a verb that sounds exactly the same, but spelled s-o-a-r. “To soar” means to fly high in the air quickly. BTW, the term “wild blue yonder” is just a fancy way of describing the sky. The title of this audioboo is “Sore Head,” which does not mean a headache. Rather it’s an idiom meaning, a poor loser, or someone with a bad attitude. Next we come to the word “sort”. This too has several meanings. As a verb, it means separate into groups. The past tense is “sorted.” As a noun, it means a type, or category of something. It is used idiomatically very frequently as a phrasal verb, “sort of” which means “in a way” of “kind of” or “similar to.” Let’s look at the past tense of “sort” which is sorted. This word has a homonym, sordid, spelled s-o-r-d-i-d that means unpleasant, or nasty. Then there is an adjective, “assorted,” meaning “varied.” So I’m now going to re-word or paraphrase the joke with all alternate meanings you’ve heard: Don’t be angry, but, in a way, I separated my various wounds by unpleasant means while I flew high into the sky. How this situation arose, is a joke for another day. And THAT’s what’s so funny!

I lost my bank cards
An unplanned trip into Kaitaia due to my missing cards. Not feeling to good about it. Feet hurt still.
