How bout y’all? I know some folks really enjoy that type of thing. Am I missing something? Probably, I can be a little dense on a regular basis.
Hey, y’all know I’m usually bemoaning some
crazy unusual stunt that random morons eccentric folks are pulling. My jaded nature cannot be contained!
But, honestly, I do love so many things about people in general! So, today I’m going to be a Positive Priscilla and count down my top 10:
10-People are so entertaining!
9-People teach me something new every day.
8-People are creative and inspire me!
7-People are all God’s children.
6-People make life more interesting than fiction!
5-People are beautiful – all ages, sizes and colors.
4-People make me see things in new ways.
3-People are wise.
2-People can be simple, which can be profound.
And my Number 1 Great Thing about People today is….
1-People make me laugh, and that’s one of my very favorite things to do!
So, thanks people of the world!! Even though I get frustrated with you sometimes, I can always see beyond that to you true greatness!!
Laughing and Appreciating! Lollie Gagger
Seems there’s an epidemic of “all about me” behavior lately. I have to aggressively fight it myself! But, it really is unattractive in a person.
You know, the person who always relates every story you tell or comment you make to something that happened to them. They call it “relating” and I call it “rude.”
The guy whose experiences are always much better (or worse) than you own. He just can’t let you have one iota of the spotlight, right?!
It just makes me want to clam up and crawl under a hole. They wouldn’t notice anyway…
Still, I am thankful God shows us things in others that
bug us educate us in what we may need to improve in ourselves. Here’s to you, awesome rant reader!
I've found myself a member of many audiences lately due to what time of the school year it is: dance productions, bball games, award ceremonies, graduations, etc. And glad to be there! That is, unless I have a champion noise polluter sitting behind me!
I know folks are excited for their child’s accomplishments, I am too! I just wonder and wonder and wonder at people who don’t seem to connect what they do (ex. whistle through their fingers loud enough to shatter glass right in my ear) with the thought that it may affect me/others in some way!
Granted, I am much more sensitive now due to my Meniere’s Disease and migraine propensity. But, I’m pretty tolerant, hey I have 3 kids. I’m talking about the completely unnecessary applause so snap, crackle, pop handbones may break. (related incident: a man even clapped me in the head he was being so enthusiastic the other day!) The woot-woots so shrill the wooter won’t have a voice the next day. And once in a while is okay, but every. single. time. anyone. does. anything. Seriously, did someone appoint this person the head cheerleader in charge?!
Rant, rant, rant…y’all won’t believe me when I say I’m actually a very happy, cheerful person. My momma raised a suthun lady, so I am pretty good at covering my utter and complete irritation (most of the time). I may be smiling while you’re abrading my eardrum, but I’m seething silently but scarily inside.
Laughing (quietly and politely), LG
