Ever stop to think:
Red is red, isn't it?
Or . . . .
Is the color I call red - and see as red - really blue to you, but you call it red because you were taught that it was red?
This is the shit I do when I should be teaching kids how to talk.
Yes, I really do give them the therapy they need, but in the back of my mind I'm calculating my next check, paying out my bills mentally and dividing the remaining money into my savings and retirement funds, re-analyzing my current relationship and thinking up meaningless questions like the one just posed.
If I worked half as hard at working as I do at thinking, I would be such a better therapist. I'm kick ass as it is - just check the progress reports of the kids - but I would be PHENOMENAL if I devoted 100% of my attention to it instead of 75%.
Why is a school called a school and not mom? For that matter, why is mom mom?
Who decided what words were "cuss" words?
Could I have been a taste tester back in the day? Could I really have pulled things out of the ground, washed them off and said "So, I'm gonna check if this is food. If I keel over later on, don't eat this ever again."
Why are cops the biggest law breakers? One ran a stop sign in front of me, did 90 in a 70 and wasn't wearing his seat belt. He then got off the same exit I did and went through the drive through at McDonalds. I don't think he was speeding to an emergency.
Why do I HAVE to wear my seatbelt??? Am I not old enough to make this decision? I mean, for the love of Christ, there's no HELMET law, but there's a seatbelt law? For children, I get it. I do. But if I paid for the damn car, I should be allowed to go through my own windshield if I want to.
I think I believe in re-incarnation. I had an epiphany the other day. Certain members of society, easily identified by other characteristics, were at one point in their life cows. I know this because they walk out in front of your car and don't care that you were DRIVING. They also walk as slow as is humanly - or bovinely - possible while they're there. Some of them (this holds true for grocery store aisles as well) think that the road is actually a sidewalk. They stand there and chat it up. And if you drive upon them, they glare at you as though YOU are in the wrong, and continue their conversation. And, just like cattle, if you honk at them, it does nothing to sway them into movement. They simply glare at you again, possibly make an obscene gesture, and then continue to stand there talking.
Why do Americans not have to speak English anymore?
Why are there Spanish menus at McDonalds?
Would I move to France and expect them to speak English instead of French to me?
Should scholarship money go to children of illegal aliens when middle class actual AMERICANS can't get scholarships?
Oh wait . . . that one has an answer -- NO, Governor Mike Huckabee, they shouldn't, you pompous ignoramus.
