Is ‘hello” enough for you these days? (credit to Rory –https://aguycalledbloke.blog/2019/12/29/is-hello-enough-for-you-these-days/ )
If it includes eye contact and a genuine smile, it’s good enough for me. However, if it also includes asking me if I’m over 55, and acting surprised when I claim to be 15 years beyond that, even better. And then telling me I qualify for a seniors discount, simply for being old – wow! This happened to me. I wasn’t even wearing makeup and my hair was still damp and a tad wild from my shower. Normally I dont leave the house looking like that, but maybe I should try it more often.
Do you believe in Murphy? For those who aren’t familiar with Murphy, here’s a wee explanation: Murphy’s law is an adage or epigram that is typically stated as: “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong”.
Yes, I am a faithful follower of all things Murphy. That way, when things go right, it’s a mini celebration.
Does evil come from within? If so, why?
Within, without, above, below and maybe even sideways, you just never know. I used to believe we weren’t born with it, but the nicest people can end up with the wildest houligans. One thing I know for sure, hate being the greatest evil, it can spread like wildfire.
Are intelligent people more or less happy than others? What defines intelligence?
Not sure intelligence has much to do with happiness. I’ve met some pretty stupid people who aren’t at all sad about it. Intelligence is the ability to learn, understand, and reason. And then not act like a moron. Unless that’s what makes you happy. I try not to judge.
Please feel free to share a quote, photo or thought about gratitude.
Hmmm, what am I grateful for today. Not the big snow dump we got overnight, or the drop in temperature, but because of both those things I’m grateful for a spouse who delights in snow blowing. The house is warm, the sun is shining, the days are getting longer, the grocery shopping was done just before the weather got crappy, and I have chocolate ovaltine in the cupboard. Sorry to the people who gagged about that last one.
I also talked to my sister this morning and have started another crochet project, this time for my daughter-in-law. Those things aren’t exactly related, it’s just how my intelligent mind works, stating random things out of the blue and being annoyingly happy about weird stuff.
Life is good. January is long. Time to stop talking. Until next time.
