There is a lot happening in the world today. In the news. In our own lives. It is hard to keep up with the overwhelming amount of information that comes our way every day.
So I will help bring you up to speed. Some headlines, and things I noticed in the last 24 hours.
The big news first. Apparently, Nutella changed its recipe. Oh yes. Stop the presses. They swapped some whey powder for milk powder, or something like that. The diehard Nutella fans went completely ballistic on Social Media. Totally Nuts. All I know, is that the smartest nut mixtures have some macadamia.
Of course, the main stories which are popping up all over the place are the sexual assault accusations. I could write an entire book about the wide and far of this. But I think it is a good thing that all of this is coming to light. People are finally overcoming their fears and talking about the abuse.
Which reminds me. I bought my friend an elephant for his room. He said “Thanks”
I said “Don’t mention it”
Okay. Okay. Another big headline has been the current drug crisis in America. It is plaguing the country from shore to shore.
I made the mistake of buying some shoes from a drug dealer. I don’t know what he laced them with, but I’ve been tripping all day.
Then. Then, then, then, there is the whole North Korea thing, and the pissing contest between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un. I hope it simmers down. For the entire planet’s sake.
And so what if I don’t know what Armageddon means? It’s not the end of the world.
Here is what I think about all that bad news. All those worries and cares. Sometimes, we need to keep our eyes on the positive things in our lives. The things that bring us joy. Like dogs.
Apparently, I am not the only one. Lots of people love their pups.
A good friend of mine has a dog that does magic tricks.
The dog is a labracadabrador.
I know a guy in town who is a cowboy. He told me he just got a wiener dog.
Yep. He wanted to get a long little doggie.
Seriously. Dogs are amazing.
If you want to find out who loves you more, stick your wife and dog in the trunk of your car for an hour.
When you open the trunk, who is happy to see you? Uhhhhhnnnnn.
As I wrap this up and head to bed, it reminded me of this.
What do you get when you cross a dyslexic, an insomniac, and an agnostic?
Someone who lays awake at night wondering if there is a dog.
But seriously. I hope your day is filled with many good moments. And if any troubles arise as you move through your day, remember everyone…. EVERYONE…. Has a different perspective. Like these two guys:
Yeah. Two men meet on opposite sides of a river. One shouts to the other “I need you to help me get to the other side!”
The other guy replies “You are on the other side!”
