Day 2998: It doesn’t make sense

It doesn’t make sense that so many people are

  • hateful,
  • cruel,
  • ignorant,
  • racist,
  • sexist,
  • homophobic,
  • ageist,
  • close-minded,
  • irrational,
  • petty,
  • malicious,
  • rigid,
  • divisive,
  • greedy,
  • humorless,
  • dismissive,
  • immature,
  • intolerant, and
  • uncaring.

It doesn’t make sense that bad things happen to good people.

It doesn’t make sense that there are such extreme economic inequalities.

It doesn’t make sense that people’s rewards on this earth do not match the value of what they contribute to others.

It doesn’t make sense that people focus on short-term gain, ignoring long-term consequences and realities.

It doesn’t make sense that we are trashing our own home — the Earth.

It doesn’t make sense that we don’t join together to solve problems.

It doesn’t make sense that people are so hungry for power and then misuse it when they get it.

It doesn’t make sense that people act like they’re going to live forever.

It doesn’t make sense that people who have so little sense do so much of the talking.

It doesn’t make sense that we change the clocks twice a year.

It doesn’t make sense that, as of this writing, nobody has commented on this photo from yesterday’s blog post:

Does it make sense that all this was inspired by one daily bitch?

It does make sense that Michael is making hot, buttery mashed potatoes tonight.

Do my other images today make sense?

It doesn’t make sense to me that so many people voted for Donald Trump.

Here’s “It Makes No Sense!” by Trevor Noah

… and “Life Doesn’t Make Sense!” by Pete Holmes:

It doesn’t make sense that I’m just now finding out about the amazing Regina Carter.

What doesn’t make sense to you?

It doesn’t make sense to end any blog post without expressing gratitude for all who helped me create it, including YOU!

Day 2241: Probable

Yesterday, I shared with my boyfriend Michael the latest catastrophizing fear in my brain.  Michael listened and then responded:

That sounds probable.

It’s probable that Michael was being sarcastic and it’s probable that I will continue to seek out Michael when I’m catastrophizing because it’s probable he will say something helpful.

It’s probable that I will continue to blog daily because that helps me, too.

It’s probable that I will snap photos and share them with you.

It’s probable that Michael is going to make something delicious for dinner, like those burritos.

I don’t know how probable it is that we’ll get a dog some day because of, you know, the cats.

It’s probable that comedian Pete Holmes is visiting Lexington High School in that scene from his excellent show Crashing (even though I initially thought it was probable that was my son’s high school, instead).

According to my news feed, it’s probable that  many people will be running for U.S. President in 2020.

It seems probable, to me, that unless we human beings drastically change our behaviors, the future might look like the movie WALL-E.

It’s probable that my day at work today will be different from WALL-E’s.

It’s probable that some of my readers will comment and it’s more than probable that I’ll express gratitude to all who helped me create this “probable” post and — of course! — to YOU.
