Brain Farts and Grey Hair
Why should anyone care what I think? Because I'm interesting! You'll see, having an interest in pretty much everything tends to make you that way. Religion, Politics, Parenting, Sports, Science, People... there's always something to talk about. But, have you ever noticed that despite all that you think about, when someone asks you what you're thinking about, your mind suddenly goes blank. Kind of like when someone asks you what you want for your birthday all you can say is, "Uh...." It's like that with me right now. Here I am attempting to type my first blog, a blog I started because I have jumbles of stuff that I want to share with the rest of the world, and I can't think of a single thing to write about. It's a rare moment of downtime, the kid is asleep, the hubby is at work, there's nothing that needs doing... and I am failing to operate. We all need a break every now and then, but this break is messing up my vibe! How am I supposed to keep my brain on track when there is nothing to keep track of!? I guess we just can't win no matter what we do! Perhaps these brain farts increase as we go through life losing bits and pieces of our mind as we go along, and then out pops another grey hair. Should we envy the bald guys? For every one of their hairs that falls out just as it turns grey, that's one more brain fart that no one ever has to know about. Lucky! What should be a mark of honor for successfully battling another highly stressful situation is instead serving as a reminder of how old you are, which can in itself inspire more grey hairs. It's a losing battle people. We should just think of every brain malfunction as a mini vacation, yeah that's it, its our brain's way of telling us to take a break for a minute... or 60. And as for those grey hairs, they aren't grey, they are silver. It means you're worth more! Ain't that good news in today's economy!
