Did you know…?

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.

However, every single time a new post of yours comes up in my reader, before I even look I think, is it the 17th? is this my reminder?

So you are the cause of some responsibility, no matter your driving. :)

I can totally see myself doing the same thing if I heard the Public Service Announcement. Thanks for the chuckle.

Hi!

Consider this your invite!! Hope you’ll join in with us!

I am looking for as many people as we can find that would like to participate in a bloggy “Giving Thanks on Thanksgiving.” I dreamed this idea up as a way to give thanks to the Lord for His work in each of our lives by sharing our testimonies with the world wide web on Monday, November 24, 2008. That’s the Monday before Thanksgiving guys! Many of you may choose to leave that post up for the entire week and I encourage that. My prayer is that this sharing of our testimonies will not only encourage each other and give Glory to our Lord but also to those who happen upon our blogs.

For more info on how it’ll work go here:

(That reads “The Mouth Behind The Moose” .blogspot.com)

Hope your testimony will be there too!!

Grace & Peace,
Heather Twitchell
