Deep Thoughts from My Out-Laws

I think the mistake a lot of us make is thinking the state-appointed psychiatrist is our "friend."

It's easy to sit there and say you'd like to have more money. And I guess that's what I like about it. It's easy. Just sitting there, rocking back and forth, wanting more money.

If I had the time to sit down and write a thank-you note to everyone who sent me a nice, expensive present, what a wonderful world that would be.

To me, it's a good idea to always carry two sacks of something when you walk around. That way, if anybody says, "Hey, can you give me a hand?" you can say, "Sorry, got these sacks."

Dad always thought laughter was the best medicine, which I guess was why several of us died of tuberculosis.

As the light changed from red to green to yellow and back to red again, I sat there thinking about life. Was it nothing more than a bunch of honking and yelling? Sometimes it seemed that way.

I wish I would have a real tragic love affair and get so bummed out that I'd just quit my job and become a bum for a few years, because I was thinking about doing that anyway.

I hope life isn't a big joke, because I don't get it.

Yeah, us outlaws have to stick to together, what with all these bloods running around.

Loved the disclaimer at the bottom of the post, too. Wise move.

Great shot of Stie! Is that a toilet paper scarf??

kelly said...

loved this. thanks for making me smile.

Christie said...

Yes, Bridget, I wear toilet paper scarfs now. See what happened when you up and moved away, leaving me without a fashionista? You MUST move back now. You see that it's necessary.
