I must be more left brain today, I can't find my write-brain anywhere.
Once I was in my brother's car, we were going through a traffic circle and someone nearly hit us. He laughed and asked me if he should do it again... "What would happen if you were scared half to death twice?"
He also asked me once if it were more important to be priceless or to feel like a million bucks.
Why is it that you only see a super cute guy looking at you in the grocery store on the day you're wearing your ugly sweats and a stained T-shirt? I suspect it's because you are looking around you more thinking that someone might see you in this unsexy outfit and not that they are NOT there when you look good, you just don't notice.
Sometimes I find that the dark seems darker when I have my glasses on. Seriously. When I head downstairs at night we have only a small night light on the far end of the living room. I can see okay without my glasses through the darkness, but with them on it seems harder to distinguish things.
If I lie to my kids about what's actually in their dinner, trying to make it something they will like, they will find proof and I'll have to tell them. So I just quit lying about it.
All three of my kids magically turned vegetarian or something just before they turned 3. my 11 year old is just now able to eat everything and my 7 year old only eats a bit more meat now.
Turns out, if you really want someone to open up and tell you something... you have to shut up long enough to let them.
There is too much truth in "you have to hit the bottom to before you go back up." And just like falling on my a$$... the bottom hurts.
The best way to ruin dinner is to say "no, I have some of that at home" while you are looking at it in the grocery store. You can bet you will have none, or if you do it will be rotten.
Thanks for hanging out everyone! I love this. It's so much more fun than talking to myself... which I still do anyway.
