Curious about why this is named the Crotchet’s Corner?
Let me roll back a jot, and ask you if you know what “Crotchet” means. No, it is not the fancy needlework that is used to make elegant tableware or delicate dresses (that is crochet, incidentally).
Crotchet refers to someone who is (usually) of advancing years, and is odd, whimsical, capriciously stubborn, eccentric, and, perhaps, even bad-tempered.
Alright, so what’s the deal, you might well ask.
Do I fall into the above stated definition? More often than not, no. But, on occasion, yes.
I observe myself pondering about the world around me – often in lighter vein, at times in anguish, occasionally in anger, sometimes with joy, periodically with frustration.
So, I thought of noting down my thoughts, views, observations, “judgments” (aren’t humans, by and large, judgmental?), rants, gripes and what have you.
Agree with my views? Great.
And, if you don’t? Well, I guess you will then say that the term “Crotchet” fits.
