My wife has been doing the exciting “alphabet” series of posts for a number of weeks now. However, she will be unable to do it this week, so she asked me to fill in for her (which I bet will be the last time that happens). It is hard to believe that we have less than 20 letters in the alphabet to go, but we will make the most of it with the remaining letters we have. Anyway, I digress. I have been given the letter “H”, so “H” it shall be. Let’s see – H. H, H, H, H, H, H. H is for ……………………………………..Hiney. Yes, you heard that right. H is for Hiney. You didn’t expect that, did you? And that is precisely the point. Life throws many unexpected things your way. Picture if you will the following:
A man drives home the typical way from his typical job on a typical Friday evening. As is typical, he drives alongside his mailbox at the end of the driveway to check the daily mail. As he opens the mailbox door, the hiney of a toy doll comes spilling towards him from the inside of the mailbox, temporarily terrifying him. Impossible, you say. Well, here’s the photographic evidence:
Thus, a typical day turned into a very surprising day. And that’s the way life is – some cruising and some curveballs, with lots of lessons along the way. Can you really learn a lesson from the southern end of a northbound doll? Of course!
1. You never know when someone is going to show their hiney to you. Be prepared.
2. You can’t control when someone is going to show their hiney to you. But you can control your reaction to it – it can either be positive or negative, it is really up to you.
3. Don’t add to the hiney problem already in the world.
4. P.O. Boxes are probably worth the low monthly fee.
Well, I hope you have enjoyed the “H” segment of our alphabet series. My wife will resume the series next week, something to do with the letter “I”. Although it will probably be “I for Irritability” after she reads this post. Toodle-oo!!
