You know how when you go to Wal Mart you get your cart and then head across in front of the cash registers to begin your shopping? Yeah, that's what ya do.

Just close your eyes and imagine......I go in and get my cart. I start across the front of the store, passing by the checkout counters as I get ready to shop. It must have been a slow day at Wallys because as I headed by checkout area with my TOTALLY EMPTY cart, an overzealous Wal Mart checker asked me in the most cheerful way......."Were you you ready to check out?"

I quickly scanned the woman to see if she was holding one of those white canes with a little bit of red on the end. She was not.

I turned 40 on Sunday.

Can't. Believe. It.

I don't feel like 40. I'm in college with a bunch of people decades younger than myself. I am in better physical shape than I was when I was 20 and I am WAY smarter than I was when I was 20. I thought that I would have it all figured out by 40, but I don't.

I know that your attitude can make or break you, but I really hate that I am 40 now.


Today was the final day of what is called 'J-Term' at my college. It's a whole semester crammed into the month of January. Students usually take some general university requirements instead of regular courses relating to their major.

I had to take a religion course which is required for my liberal arts degree. Today, being the final day, we had small group presentations on a scripture.


Until the girl whose group was presenting started picking at the inside of her ear and examining the contents. She must have found something substantial, because she proceeded to scrape out the underside of her fingernail to rid it of the contents of her ear. Then, she went back for more.
