It’s Not For Everybody….
*It doesn’t count if you’re only attractive from one angle.
*Sometimes it’s too difficult of a task to make miserable people feel grateful. Sometimes you can only encourage their misery – but lets face it, thy don’t contribute too much to others anyway so, there may only be one way to weed the miserable out of the population ---- it involves encouragement.
*When an overly energetic child runs wild in public, their parent has a very short window of time to decide one of two things: They may choose to frantically chase after their offspring (which would propel the public audience to conclude the running wild and free thing was genetic and the child didn’t even have a chance to behave properly) OR walk briskly after the child and accept that at this speed, their child will never be apprehended, but they won’t catch as much attention from the public.
*In public, when a foreign language is spoken loudly, everyone immediately turns around to see the face from which that sound was produced. Almost like people need reassurance that anything that sounds foreign is still human and not animal or alien (of course, alien in a universal reference, not….immigration status)
*Book titles can be GENIUS and are the utmost entertaining for me. I spend too much time and money wandering thru Barnes&Nobles.
_how to sleep alone in a king-size bed: memoirs of moving on
_saving fish from drowning
_God called me stupid
_Naked to the Cankles: A fat girl’s need for love
_Your baby’s ugly: and other truths about motherhood
*There are very few norms: everyone is crazy, people just fire different crazy neurons in their braines.
*we like to use the failures/hurdles of successful people to help keep us motivated (for those of us who have goals) when pursuing a dream. We bank on the off chance. Unfortunately, the truth is MOST people should just accept the failure card. Not everyone is special or an anomaly. Einstein and Jordan failed before succeeding, that does not mean it is also your path. It is important to keep in mind the lessons in their failure are just for Hope and to show it is Possible – NOT probable. Odds are, when attempting something great, you’ll fail. That makes the victory extra sweet for those who succeed. Be ambitious but practical.
*wearing oversized darkened sunglasses is a license to be an asshole because you can bank on the chance that you did not see the random person smile in your direction, therefore, you are not required to smile back.
*When we see things on sale, that’s merely a suggestion to purchase the items. We then continue to further justify WHY it is even a better deal than is advertised.. so we feel better when we buy it: Moral compensation for monetary expenses.
*Im sure children are just as annoying (if not more) when theyre kidnapped, does this mean kidnappers are more tolerant than most people? If so, we can learn something from them.
*People who watch/follow al gore for educational/informational purposes are probably also perplexed by Blues Clues.
*Barnes and Nobles sells journals with biblical verses on the cover. Talk about Free writing. Writing in one of those diaries might make people feel restricted..like…..their diary is always being read. Mother Teresa confessed her lack of faith in Christianity in her diary…maybe she would’ve been hesitant to do that had there been a verse on the cover.
*Do kids subconsciously use more hand gestures when they speak because they feel they are not as easily understood as adults?
*Kids are hilarious cute sweet innocent and beautiful- but they should not think they are cool amongst each other. Few things are worse than a child with a superiority complex.
*What do you think when you see a man walking around an outdoor mall with a pipe in his mouth? Modern day Popeye? How does one get into Pipe Smoking these days? I didn’t see if there was an anchor tattooed on his arm….but something gave me the feeling his living room must have a lot of dark wood, maybe a fireplace..and lots of newspapers.
*being a grown woman with a high samarai-styled Side pony tail (sitting towards the crown of the head..) hints emotional problems and perhaps chemical imbalances. She should probably come with directions.
*Mariah Carey may have been chased frequently thru the playground as a child and was able to hone and maintain the pitch of her scream thru the years from which an enormous career blossomed.
*I understand it is tough for a guy to react once he is denied a dance at the club. That being said, the solution is not to consistently ask, or even worse, ask “why not” .
