The Roadkill and Gender Differences

My husband and I were driving down the road, and there was a roadkill opossum off to the side. This conversation happened:

Me: Wow, a dead opossum. It really makes you think, doesn’t it?

Andy: Yes, definitely.

We need to live each day to the fullest, make the most of every moment, because you never know when it could all be over. This really puts things into perspective. We need to stress less and live better. Have fun. Enjoy the day while we still have time left on earth.

Andy: *looks at me like I’m an alien*

Me: Uh…was that not what you were thinking?

Andy: No. When you said, “it makes you think,” it made me think, “Huh, there must be a lot of opossums that live around here.”

THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is a perfect example of how my husband and I are different. I was going to write some further commentary, but I don’t even think it’s necessary. The conversation speaks for itself.

Happy Wednesday, y’all!

TOday is laundry day so that will be fun.  And my middle one starts packing for college supposedly today. I feel pretty good about that so far. I hope I can hold it together for her.  But she’s ready–been ready for a while.  So I think it will all go well.

Very sleepy this morning.  Not sure what that’s about.  Took my medicine so hopefully that will start to ease off. I’m going to lunch with Mary Jane tomorrow.  I need more human interaction than I’m getting lately. So that will be fun.

Hope everyone has a good rest of the week.
