lieu

I'm eating waffles in lieu of a bowl of rice
I'm using butter in lieu of margarine
the cold syrup makes the toasting of said waffles rather pointless.
The trick-or-treaters rarely come to my parents' house because the neighborhood elderly are slowly dying and the families with children are constantly moving away. Sadly, that means I get to eat a lot of Junior Mints.
I work in a factory in lieu of going to school
I'm using the internet in lieu of watching TV.
I've been reading in lieu of writing.
The growing trend is to donate to charity in lieu of flowers.
I turned to a friend about one of my problems in lieu of trying to handle them ALL by myself and I remembered what it was like to be able to resolve them that comfortably.
I also remembered what it was like to have friends who listened and understood.
She was returning the favor in lieu of being selfish I guess.

I'm suprised my hair isn't grey already.

Your last post made me smile, what with the folding of laundry. I'm almost moved to write a list of my own, but I hate stealing people's thunder.

It's weird but you always remind me of someone and it isn't you. Maybe I'll figure it out someday.
