Some quite-random thoughts have been sloshing around lately:
1: Caller ID should force callers to press 1 for “Good News” and 2 for “Bad News”, so I don’t actually have to pick up or listen to my messages later.
2: Give a 6-year-old girl her own lego set, and suddenly, her 12-year-old brother will want to play with her.
3: Very small children seem to be strongly endothermic. Otherwise, they could not survive in my 60* house wearing only their “keeny” top and bottom, and a silk scarf for a “Super Girl!” cape.
4: It does not seem at all odd to me that we bring the pet duck in for regular swim-time in the bathtub, or that we turn on the shower to give it the sensation of warm, natural rain. This means something, but I’m not sure what, exactly.
