I am surprised that I didn't break down and pour myself a stiff drink today.
I am surprised that I spent about 78 hours in my car.
I am surprised that I had sushi for the first time in my life this week, and ate something called "Monkey Brain" and LOVED. IT.
I am surprised at what a sore loser I am. (Hello Monopoly Card Game. Hello Husband who beat me in what was supposed to be a friendly, bonding experience. Hello Devil, who possessed my body as Cory slowly ran me out of properties/money and threw me into such a tizzy that I had to go outside and "walk it off". Hello TWO MILES before I was calm enough to return home. Hello.) Honestly, what is my problem?
I am surprised that despite my being a sore loser, we will say hello to 17 years of marriage on Saturday. Not sure what keeps him around. (Must be my awesome rack.)
I am surprised that no matter how hard American airports try, when they put up a sign over their moving walkway like THIS:
that everyone will still stand in the middle, crowd both sides of the path and stare straight ahead as if to say, "Sign? What sign? I don't see any sign." while a soothing voice overhead repeats the very words, "Please walk on the left and stand to the right." In my opinion, that voice is too soothing and that's why people don't pay attention. We need James Earl Jones over the PA System saying, "Move It Or Lose It. That's right cowboy, I'm talking to YOU." Even if I wasn't a cowboy, I think I'd listen to him.I am surprised that I saw Kate Gosselin smiling (smiling!) on a magazine cover advertising her new season on TLC. In this case, I think "TLC" might stand for "Totally Lame Chick".
I am surprised how stupid I am sometimes. Like how I confessed to a group of church members that I had looked up some of my old boyfriends on facebook during a lesson in which our pastor was cautioning against the dangers of social media. Oh, and did you hear the one about the Primary President who got caught at church with a shot of whiskey in her purse? True story. I'll tell you about it sometime.
I am surprised that people pay more for organic fruits and vegetables.
I am surprised that Justin Bieber is famous.
I am surprised that you are still reading this.
