My mind has a tendency to wander. Or wonder.
There are times when I should be paying attention to the task at hand… and there my brain goes… far, far away…. wondering…… about anything and everything. Why are Moon Pies called Moon Pies. Does Stephen King have nightmares? Who came up with the idea for roller coasters?
Yep. The old gray matter goes technicolor sometimes… on its very own.
Some things will come to mind… and then bug me. For instance, I have a lot of friends and family who own kitchens… and they cook in those kitchens. I have YET to meet anyone, friend or foe, who actually OWNS a set of those Amazing Ginsu Knives. That tells me one of two things. Either my friends don’t buy things from the Shopping Channel… or none of them have ever taken advantage of “Call within the next ten minutes…” or “Act Right Now!”
But wait. There’s more.
I wonder if there has ever been a misspelled word in the dictionary. And if so…. how would we know? Speaking of which… did you know the word gullible isn’t in the dictionary?
Here’s another thing that troubles me. I bought some REAL Lemon Juice in a bottle today. The label said it contained “artificial ingredients”. Same dang grocery trip….. I picked up dish soap. Now THAT contained real lemon juice. Something is terribly flawed in this scenario.
People kiss all sorts of things. Each other. Frogs. The ground. Their butts goodbye. But why don’t we kiss flowers? We smell them, after all. I think that if I ever kiss a flower… tulips will be better than one.
In spite of all this shrewd mental activity…. sometimes I forget things. The other day…. I couldn’t quite remember how to throw a boomerang, but eventually it came back to me.
Well, I will keep it short this time around. I am looking forward to getting off to bed tonight. I am reading great book about gravity. I am having a hard time putting it down.
