It Never Went As Scripted From My Youth

Driving home from a clinic after getting a blood test, I was amused thinking of how life is full of surprises. Good and bad. Mostly FUCKING WEIRD!

I never imagined I would have blood clots. I did. 

I never imagined skinny flat cell phones. I thought those things would be more like bulky sci fi stuff. 

I never believed I would reach age 65 and still be working in a factory. 

Going bald? Ahhhh I took my nice long hair for granted until it started thinning and … ok no combovers just shave that head!

I never imagined the USA being led by a TOTAL FUCKING IDIOT … and wow, it is. 

I never imagined I would musically go from big flat disc with a needle on them to incomprehensibly small music FILES where a whole music collection of thousands of songs and works can fit on something the size of a small slice of bread or thick cracker. 

Self driving cars? Not in my life time! But there they are. 


And that is part of the wonder in life: That we do not anticipate or imagine something being or happening. It just hits us good or bad or totally fucking weird. There are things I dread each day and hope they do not surprise me such as that “oh shit” moment when someone launches missiles that end the world. I imagine it and hope like hell something innocuous and weird is waiting for me tomorrow, instead of that.

@zombieinfusedtea I do not know what that means… it is very surprising and I thank you for that as it was not imagined by me 😉
