How is it that something can suck and blow at the same time?
Do these words not have opposite meanings?
 Remember Henry from yesterday?
I could not bear to take a picture of what he has been reduced to.
When the kids arrived home yesterday to see him out there
headless and... well... pretty much everything-less...
they were sad.
Losing him so soon.
It totally sucks and completely blows.
See what I mean?

bumper sticker
I was thinking about our country and its issue with over-consumption and gluttony.
Then I thought of a new bumper sticker to replace
America The Beautiful.
How about...
America the Big and Full?
I know. Bad taste.

I often stand in line at the grocery store and imagine everyone as giant toddlers.
It makes me laugh so hard inside!
It also makes time fly.
Imagine if we were all toddlers acting on impulse and curiosity.
What if you turned around and just stared at the person behind you
or shouted whatever came to your mind.
"Why does her hair look so funny?"
What if the guy in front of you had an overwhelming urge to
scream out his frustration at wanting to exit the store in a more timely manner.
What if he just started yelling at the top of his lungs?
Sometimes I wonder what people would do if I just walked up and hugged them
or poked them
or grabbed things from their cart.

Perhaps I have exposed too much of my internal dialogue in this post.
Perhaps I am the only one who thinks these things.
Perhaps not.
What if we all let our quirkiness fly?
What if we let loose more often?
Found humor in life?

How about you? Any strange ponderings lately?
Don't be shy!
