Believe or not, the thoughts I post to this blog have normally been worked and re-worked many times over, often over a period of days. Many others have been eliminated altogether. Following are seven thoughts that occurred to me today, June 14, 2011. Here they are exactly as they popped into my head. I have not reworked them, and I have not reviewed them in the light of the morning. If you like these, this blog is going to become a whole lot easier.
"Sometimes I wonder -- if I were drop-dead handsome, and every woman I met actually dropped dead, would I ever get tired of it?"
"Whatever a woman does to attract a man, if she asks him, "What really attracted you to me," it had better be something else.
"Just because people avoid you doesn't mean they're avoiding you like the plague, unless they're covering their nose with a handkerchief."
"Nothing is ever perfect, like even if you had drop-dead good looks, your skin might exude a lethal noxious gas, and you would never actually know why people around you were dropping dead."
If one day God said to you, "If you wish, you can trade your intelligence for drop-dead good looks, what would your answer be? I mean, if "Yes" weren't allowed.
"Just remember -- if you had the friendliest, most winning personality on earth, you'd always wonder if people liked you only for your personality."
For instant perspective, there's nothing like sifting through the rubble of your tornado-ravaged home and finding your "Things I Gotta Do" list from yesterday.
