October is tree-planting time…do we have them!
I may have mentioned previously that I don’t watch the news. I don’t read the newspaper. That little fact recently came out in a conversation, to which the person inquired, “How do you keep up with current events?” “That’s crazy!” To which I made a deadpan reply, “It’s not just crazy, it’s extra crazy with cheese.”
If you’re walking around on this blue marble, you know with certainty we live in a crazy world. It’s not just any crazy world: it’s an extra crazy with cheese, kind of world. Personally, I’m able to observe enough of everyday life to draw that conclusion. Unfortunately, most of my observations have come from within, not from those standing nearby. Now don’t get me wrong, bystanders do contribute from time to time, but they are largely innocent. It’s that crazy crowd in my head; that, extra crazy with cheese crowd. You know who I’m talking about.
The Committee convenes: the um, extra crazy with cheese committee. I’ve never been able to get an accurate count, but it’s a large group, and they’re noisy. If you stand too close to me you might become distracted by my inner noise. So, approach at your own risk! (Strangely, you might not be able to tell by looking at me.) That is why I don’t need the news; my own Extra Crazy with Cheese Breaking News Network 24/7/365…this just in…
