When I was taking this picture, I was reminded of what an active imagination I had as a child. For years, whenever I would take a shower, I would pretend that I was showering in a waterfall. I would pretend that my shampoo, conditioner, soap…that it was all products from the jungle like coconuts and wild fruits. *laughs* I know it sounds silly, but I really used to love it. I suppose there was a part of me that just wanted to escape the living hell that was my life at the time. I wanted to be stranded on an island far away from everyone I knew at the time. I just wanted to get away from my life…even if it was just for a twenty minute shower.
I’ve always found it rather odd that people will label one another best friends then compete, manipulate, or bully one another. That’s not even friendship, much less “best” friends. To have true friendship, you must treat one another the way you wish to be treated. My best friends and I (yes, I have more than one. I have four) give each other hell, but its all in good fun. We do not get jealous of each other. We do not attempt to own one another. Nor do we throw tantrums about who they spend their time with, where they are, or what they’re doing. No, we are not perfect, but one of the reasons these friendships work is that we respect each other. We love each other without limits. I’ve gotten into arguments with two of them, but we’ve always worked it out. I see so many so called friends treat each other so terribly that it makes me wonder if they even have a clue what friendship really is and if they have said clue, I question their definition.
You ever wonder who decides what things are to be called? Something are obvious…elevator, it elevates, OK, but elephant and trunk? Who decided those were the English words for such a magnificent beast? Who decides to call these appendages we use daily, the fingers? We can often research slang words to discover their origin, but rarely do we know who were the first people to encounter the elephant and named it so that one day the English translation would be elephant….its a funny word if you think about it…ella fant….el la funt…or effa lump assuming you’re under 6. And isn’t effalump just as good a name? I often wonder if the person that named the butterfly wasn’t partly dyslexic, because surely they meant flutterby….makes much more sense, don’t ya think? Yes, this is just one of the crazy ways my mind works. Now imagine having to talk to me on a daily basis and the random things that just pop out of my mouth. *narrows her eyes* Get your filthy minds out of the gutter….sheesh, I can’t talk to y’all about anything!
