My ten year old daughter and her friends often play a game of Expectation vs. Reality. They imagine the best result from some activity, and then they demonstrate the failed reality. For example, here is the dive they expect to do in the pool …
And then the reality they demonstrate is …
Maybe not that bad. That looks painful. I don’t want my youngest and her friends hurt.
Trump supporters play this same game all day, every day. For example, this is their view of the “National Emergency.”
Now that Beto O’Rourke is in the Democratic primary race, the rest of the field beto be ready for him. Get it? I know, that was a stretch. Sorry. But take a look at this real 2 acre crop circle in this field in Austin, Texas.
I guess you can say Beto is leading the field. Alright, I’ll stop.
Being on the road again, I had hoped to bring you some Americana sightseeing tales and pics. However, inclement weather interceded, so I will bring you another travel tip. I know what you’re thinking, “Please, not another post about hotel soap.”
“But … but … hotel soap is an integral part of my business travel,” I protest. How about a Trumpy soap post? I know you want it. Let’s go.
When presented with 2 soap choices, always use the smaller one and take the larger soap home.
Now, I know Trump supporters may struggle with how to determine which is larger and which is smaller. I’ll try and make it relatable for them.
I saw this on Twitter this morning …
What happened in that one minute to change America from having to be made great to being great? Maybe Fox & Friends said something. Maybe nothing. Maybe he is tooting his own horn while still trying to sell more of those MAGA caps. Maybe his brain just continues to melt into dementia.
This past Sunday, one of our church minister’s sermonized that children are a gift from God. I couldn’t believe I heard that, because normally I never hear any part of the sermon. In fact, I wrote my last post during the sermon. Anyway, that part of the sermon about children puzzled me, but not because I doubted the Bible has some verse like that. It seems to have a verse about everything. For example, I was considering supporting Senator Kamala Harris as the Democratic candidate for President, but …
Timothy 2:11 “I permit no woman to teach or have authority over men; she is to keep silent.”
Oh well, there are plenty of male candidates, so no worries.
I did check the Bible to see if children are truly a gift from God. Sure enough …
Psalm 127:3 “Children are a blessing and a gift from the Lord.”
In the course of raising five children, I have often questioned if my kids are gifts, then where are the gift receipts?
Oh well, if those “gifts” don’t work out and you can’t find the gift receipts, there’s always this child-rearing/bashing tip …
Psalm 137:9 “May the Lord bless everyone who beats your children against the rocks!”
So I’ve got that going for me, which is nice.
