Just trying to make some sense of the small little world we live in.
It has been unseasonably warm the last few days. Two mornings ago, I saw two (separate) men driving in their cars/trucks, and I could tell that they weren't wearing shirts. Now, men not wearing shirts was a common summer thing when I was a kid but for some odd reason, I feel like I don't see it that much anymore. Well, regardless, two days ago, two men, sans shirts, all before 8 am. The thing that alarmed me, however, was that I am still not convinced that those men weren't fully nude. They just looked so . . . naked behind the wheel, that I quickly turned away.
If you are alone (or think you are alone) and you yawn (or sneeze or cough), do you cover your mouth? We, as a society, seem to have forgotten how to lift our arms in such cases.
When did it become impossible to travel any distance in our cars without the dire need for a bottle of water, a travel mug of coffee or our cell phones? When and how did we become so damned needy?
Have a great weekend, all.
