did you know it’s possible for a normally responsible, ‘have to be early everywhere’ type woman to miss 3 flights in 3 days? yep. it is.
did you know it is entirely possible for a 3 yr old to accidentally twinkle in the mouth of a 4 yr old, from a distance of 3 feet?
did you know that if that happens, the 4 yr old will be exceptionally, uncharacteristically, motivated to do a very thorough job with toothbrushing?
that’s the silver lining i decided to cling to, rather than gag over the circumstance.
did you know that if i should ever disappear off the pyanet, i can tell you right now where to look. Thanksgiving Point, Utah.
my personal theory is that it was named that because you’re there for less than five minutes before whispering to yourself, “OH THANK YOU, GOD, I AM HERE.” (Thus, you’ve come to a personal point of thanksgiving, no matter what time of year it is.) Muscles relax, happy sighing occurs.
did you know it’s possible for a well intentioned, radio public service message to CAUSE an accident? it spoke of how it is not safe to place hands at positions ’10′ and ’2′ as this could interfere with airbag deployment. also, the ad described how to position the steering wheel at your chest and not your chin, so the angle of the airbag wouldn’t cause injuries. i was driving through a parking lot, bizarrely enthralled by this ad, and scrutinizing my steering wheel angle and hand placement when i hopped a curb and mowed down a medium sized red tip photinia. because there were no children present, and the shrub seemed fine, i drove off giggling at the irony. no airbag was deployed, of course. but if it HAD – i would have been SO ready.
perhaps considering that this short post confesses i missed 3 flights, somehow managed to let one kid provide an unwanted homemade beverage to another kid, and had a totally avoidable car ‘incident’, i should adjust my self image of ‘normally responsible.’
which just brings me back to an earlier point: if i ever go totally irresponsible, just check in utah.
