Okay, so I’m kind of going through a list making phase as prompts for my creative thinking ventures. The list of the day for me is…
Have You Ever Noticed….
…how if a guy is really into something say football or biking or quads or Nascar and a girl is really into that guy she’ll try to get into whatever he’s into but it doesn’t usually work the other way around?
…how it used to be looked down on to be a stay-at-home mom and now if a woman makes that choice it is more accepted?
…how when you’re in a funk you have to spend some time dealing with it and many times after the funk is over you regret the time you wasted?
…how life can turn on a dime? Things are rolling right along quite nicely, then the smallest thing happens and it feels like you’ve been thrown into a brick wall at a 100 miles an hour with no protective gear.
…how socks go into the laundry with a perfect match but come out as a single. Moral of this story? Lovers should never do laundry together.
…how you can show a kid how to do something a million times and they never get it right…till they move out on their own and get their own place, then suddenly they understand how to do it perfectly.
…how the garbage man has a great job? He gets to drive around in the big cushy truck all day, never touching the garbage, he gets paid good money and he doesn’t have to take work home with him.
…how most single working moms wish they had a wife who would cook dinner for them and help with the bedtime and bath routine and taxi jobs at the end of the day?
…how when you go to a new medical care provider filling out the form once is not enough, they then have to get a copy of the form, and then you have to go to the inner office where they punch all the same stuff into the computer again. And forget about if you are referred to another provider!
…how kids think they can convince you they aren’t lying by vehemently defending their untruth even though you saw with your own eyes otherwise. “I didn’t hit her!” “Uh, excuse me? I just saw your fist windup and let ‘er fly and land right in her arm!”
…how you never really crave a particular food (like bread or pasta) till you decide to cut back on it, then you can’t get enough of it and this is before you’ve even actually started cutting back?!
…how lists like this can be really fun or really tedious or both. Guess that must mean it is time to end this one…unless, of course…you have something to add?
