You Can't Handle this!

Time to Ponder yet again.  You know the drill... I post a prompt that has multiple meanings and we get see what you write! Add you post to the linky and wait for the magic!!

(If you want to send me words that you would like us all to ponder - please feel free to do so!)

Today's word is Handle (you can always grab the prompt early by visiting the Pondering Page

I find that this word is very interesting. You can handle a situation, and there are handles on cupboards, pots, drawers, etc.

To handle a situation is a verb. Honestly I believe it shows the true character of a person by the way he/she handles extreme situations. Are they calm? Sullen? Extroverted? Belligerent?

And then of course back in the CB Radio days a person's name was their 'handle.'

But what I find extraordinarily interesting is how many different types of handles there are:
Here are just a few:

Have fun handling this word today!

Happy Pondering


  1. There are so many kinds of 'handles.'
    Some of the things we call 'handles' in our country are not actually 'handles' in English, and I find it interesting to compare the two languages this week.

    1. Romi,
      That is quite interesting. The past couple of weeks the English and Japanese definitions have been quite similar.

  2. I need to come back and ponder with you, Brenda...I'll give it a go next week.

  3. You have a real handle on this ponder!

  4. Brenda, I am not sure I could handle this one. I am not handling my cold very well...not to mention getting ready for bathroom remodeling. I will be back next week, though. Hug.

  5. I gotta get a better handle on my pondering schedule. I'm going to have to do it on the weekend -- but then, I can never predict days like today when I am stuck with the handle of snow shovel for hours. And trying to handle having all my kids home for a snow day. That's a lot to handle!! :)

  6. Awww- I can't handle the fact that I missed the hop on my epic post today.
    Like Rory- I need to get a better handle on my blogging schedule altogether!
