Chippity Thunks

I wonder if when adults walk into the water just past their hips and stand there, if they are peeing.

And when you mix drinks all night, and go to brush your teeth with the desire to mix both toothpastes you have, on your brush.

How many of us parents on a regular basis rethink a specific moment in the day, of how we reacted poorly or that we could have listened harder? And wonder how your child is going to turn out and how much of an influence we are to them and that feeling of not ever being greater then we are.

In the future , will there be interactive movie theatres with control pads for every seat?  And the majority of what the audience chooses, is what happens in the movie.
And if it’s a shitty movie, the only ones we can blame are ourselves.

Do we say thank you for the new acts of love that show up in our lives but not for the everyday ones?
Do we appreciate ourselves for the way that we love?

How often do I buy a bag of trail mix and add a whole other bag of smarties to it so I can trick myself to think I’m eating a decently healthy snack?!

It’s weird how my dry shampoo- before I brush it in, gives me a glimpse of what I would look like with grey hair.

I hope we don’t sacrifice too much of ourselves just to make a relationship work. Can we be happy doing that in the long run? And the sacrifices we do make, how do we know when there’s too many?

  2. I fell through the rabbit hole and came upon your post. The chippity thunks make me smile. I like that your post is a mix of quirky funny thoughts and a little bit more serious questions. Today i needed the quirky thoughts. Thank you 🙂
