Once again, I am following the leader and joining in on the fun. The one, the only Hallie over at The Wonderful World of Wieners does a gig on Wednesday where the filters come flying off and we let you in on all of those things we are thinking. You know, those thoughts that pop into your head and you wonder if you are the only one that looks at something a particular way.
Is it just me or did you find the story about the almost-105 year old man who died this week after getting hit by a car a very sad story? I mean, anyone who dies after getting hit by a car is sad but the man almost made it to his 105th birthday!! He didn't die of old age, nope, a car mowed him over. He wasn't using a walker or in a wheelchair. Apparently he was healthy as a horse. Don't you wonder how long he would have lived had he not had an encounter of the worse kind with a vehicle?
Is it just me or are you getting nervous to read any magazine articles about science? I just read an article in Time magazine that said that what we eat can not only affect us but also our children and grandchildren because it can change our genetic makeup? So if I stop at dunkin donuts on my way to work today, my unborn grandchildren may have a shorter lifespan?!?!? Gee, talk about pressure. It is hard enough staying on a diet for ME- now I have to worry about my son's children? Yee gads.
Is it just me or do you get nervous when you get a call or letter from the school even though you are pretty sure your kid hasn't done anything wrong? We got a letter in the mail yesterday from the high school and my heart stopped for a microsecond wondering what it was all about. It was simply a letter inviting my husband and I to the Rotary breakfast in a few weeks to see our son recognized as STUDENT OF THE MONTH for the high school. Needless to say, I didn't have to worry and I am proud as can be. I have to confess, however, that I put on a stern face and asked my son if there was something he needed to tell me since I had been told I needed to go to the school for a meeting. Hee Hee.
Is it just me or is timing everything? I read a news article this morning about a Maine man who accidently shot someone during a sex game and he is on trial for manslaughter. The thing that struck me the most was that 4 days after he shot this person, he testified in support of Maine's Gay Marriage law. No matter what you feel about that law, you do have to admit that it is controversial. Maybe it is just me but I think having someone involved in a homosexual shooting during a sex game testify is not really going to help your cause with the conservative people who oppose gay marriage.
That is it for today. What thoughts are you pondering?
Here's to Hallie!
