All is not as it seems

Hello, Friday Fools! 

 

 

Friday Tomfoolery: things come in 3's. That's something I heard a lot growing up. I learned to believe it. I've seen it. But do I see because I "believed" it or am I seeing it because it's true? I'm not sure. What I am sure about is some things once seen can never be unseen. I've been telling the boys that for years. Years, I tell you. It's how I taught them to knock before entering a room. A potential gross-out seems to be way more effective with them. You'd think they were raised by wolves or something. I have manners, I promise (although I sometimes set them aside for my Friday Fools). Chief does, too. I don't promise much these days because I feel like the boys and I have gone feral (is mildly feral a thing? If it is, then we're that--we're not totally savage). Or, perhaps, I've just lost my mind and none of this really matters--or is even real. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Only time will tell.

The "threes" I have for you this week are SimonMed (a medical imaging center). Not a proud moment--I didn't really do anything this week except go to doctors. How sad is that? I've turned old. 😕 Last week was the great car debacle. This week is the middle aged woes or the crumbling of an empire. Honestly, I just made that up on the fly. I don't think about myself that way, but I was thinking that we spend a lifetime doing things to ourselves and then our bodies decide that it's time to cash in the chips. I've always been healthy, but I seemed to have squandered that--the saying, "youth is wasted on the young" has leveled up in my mind. I felt that in other ways a few years back, now I'm physically feeling it. So, the "threes"--It's a revolving door at the imaging center.

I  had considered not sending out a newsletter this week because I really "had no words"--I didn't know what to write. But I did find it interesting about the rule of three, and that's the only reason I'm sharing the imaging bit. I refuse to be one of those old folks who talk about the GI system like it's newsworthy. For the record--this is NOT a GI issue. I say that because it reminded me of something my dad said when we were younger about old people talking about their bowels. I know, stop. I'm not saying I'm old, either...I'm older. Maybe wiser...talking about my health issues isn't newsworthy. 🙄 But I do think the power of three is. Seeing patterns in nature and in our habits is interesting. It's just unfortunate that that's my only example. I'm hoping you give me a by on that one.

If you haven't already started--think about the 3's that show up in your life. What are they? Where do they show up? How do you respond to them? As I was writing this, I was thinking about all the birds in our yard. Who knew I'd be such a bird stalker? 

As if this newsletter isn't weird enough, I'm going to leave you with another childhood tidbit: I loved Snow White because she had dark hair and all the animals loved her. Remember when Snow White held out her arms and the birds landed on them and helped her with chores?...I loved that. Keep in mind, I was surrounded by a lot of fair-haired Nordic peoples. We didn't have furry or feathered pets growing up and my mom wasn't a big fan of farm or zoo animals, either. So this dark-haired chick hanging out with a bunch of little people and animals in the middle of the forest really spoke to me. Go figure. And if you're counting this as part of losing my mind, then I've tricked you for many, many years. I've always felt that way about Snow White and her animal friends. 😁

With that, I hope everyone is well and that you find something funny, curious, or thought-provoking to brighten your days.

Take care!
