When I look at a child, I see the future.
When I look at a bunch of children, I usually see toys I want to play with … and stressed out playground equipment.
If I saw all the children of the world together, I’d be thinking I hadn’t brought enough spaghetti and balloons.
I’ll stick to looking at children individually … from a distance … and thinking about that future stuff.
note: acorns and unicorns don’t fall far from the tree … although the unicorns might have broken legs.
double note: my mother always said she stopped having children because she got a perfect one (me). … I must have inherited some of my “full of shit” quality from her … although I think my father would be charged with 80% responsibility, if I were a car accident.
Today was somewhere between dog shit on the shoe and winning the lottery.
