THINGS I FIND RATHER AMAZING
-That some people enjoy math -Bad manners -How easy it is to think of reasons to not work out -Why most of the things that taste great are evil- doers -That Andy Warhol is considered a great artist -How coconut water tastes so weird and so good simultaneously -People who “Don’t mind the cold” -That we spend 1/3 of our lives sleeping -How tired I am during the day and how wide awake I am at night -How much women love jewelry -How much men love sports -How there is absolutely no cross over of those two interests that would allow us to enjoy them together. -That I used to hate martinis -People that talk loudly in movie theatres and attend to their snacks like they’re preparing for the final challenge on Top Chef -The Beatles -How everyone can have grown up fingernails except for me -why God created coyotes-couldn’t he have rested at dogs? -that my husband’s car never has gas in it -That honey never goes rancid -Roses -That I once left something of great value on a Tokyo subway train and it was returned to me -Monks -That I used to hate martinis -People that stay in airplane loos for a super long time-if you’re in there for over 10 minutes, I better see Ralph Fiennes sneaking out after you -That clothes closets shrink -that towering skinny palm trees don’t just blow over -People who can bite into ice with their teeth -that blue eyes are not really blue(look it up) -Some people hate reading -Broken sugar crystals give off ultra-violet light -That it’s a fact your sense of smell has been diminishing since you were a teenager. (I must have been just one giant walking nostril) -computers -That I once sold a fricking BARN on Craig’s List -some people memorize their license plate numbers -the iPhone applications that tell you what ambient song is playing where ever you are in about 20 seconds -That “The Bridges of Madison County” was a bestselling book -That I once lost a bed. -That “The kids” these days do not wash their jeans- not even kidding -A great number of people I see on the highway are still talking on their hand-held phones -I never, ever pick the right zipper on my yoga mat carrier-not once -my memory, or lack thereof -that I used to hate martinis…
PS. I once again reserve the right to amend this list as I will probably think of many more things…at about 2:00 am this morning while I’m trying to memorize my licence plate number and listening to my closet shrinking.
WHAT IS AMAZING YOU THESE DAYS??! I’d love to know!
