Have you ever noticed this?
You're kind of just sitting in a circle feeling kinda/sorta content and kinda/sorta safe and kinda/sorta minding your own business...
And all the sudden some big kid comes along and starts pounding you on the head...
You smile and don't act too chicken, but you're a little bit worried and then...
You cringe but you escape.
You exhale half way and then suddenly the big kid hits you really hard in the head and screams...
All the other kids yell and cheer.
You're paralyzed for a moment, but somehow you get to your feet and start racing around the circle with the big kid chasing after you!
You run and you run and you run!
And finally you get back to your place but you're exhausted and winded and really, really want a chocolate chip cookie for comfort.
But you can't have a chocolate chip cookie because you're stuck in the silly game of 'Duck, Duck Goose'!
You catch your breath.
Your heart is pounding.
You start to relax and suddenly...
It all starts again.
You've noticed this right?
And used this exact same analogy for your own life.
And wondered why it is that the big kid always has to come around and GOOSE! you, when all you're ever really trying to do is Duck!.
I know how much you needed to be able to refer to your life as a 'Duck, Duck, Goose!' game right now.
And I know you're sad to be done reading this because it was so deep and meaningful and insightful and all.
But don't despair.
I have plans for future posts to include such troubling and obscure subjects as:
The Musical Chairs syndrome of being an Adult
Life Shadow Tag for Dummies
...and possibly the most rivetting of all:
How to Hide when troubles are Seeking.
Hmmm???? What's that?
How do you unfollow my blog? Hmmmm. I have no idea. Really.
Why do you ask?
PS. If you don't know the game 'Duck, Duck, Goose!' please feel free to translate this entire post into 'Have a Nice Day!'
