Juxtapose What Might Happen



Today is not a dreary day for mopery. It is Friday and I have no obligations, so I put my new-found Kristoffersonian freedom to good use- I went outside and walked around! As I did this, I saw a great many things, including a big glowing ball in the sky that provided warmth and light to everything...wow, who knew that was there?

The hose, of course, carries water and is used to simulate the soothing burble of a mountain stream. It's what is keeping me so mellow.

In a car, I might not have noticed this next set of images- I had a hard time getting a pic that included both signs (cars wanted the road for themselves), but someone recently opened a dog grooming boutique directly across the street from our local Church of Scientology and the juxtaposition was enough to make me laugh out loud in public.

Scientology cracks me up...it's own prophet, El Ron, made it all up and tried to market it as science-fiction, but he earned very little money selling it as prose, so he re-packaged it as religion and made a huge fortune. Somehow, I doubt that El Ron was the first person to make such a leap.

Then, of course, there was this pairing of stupid questions:


I mean, there are only two possible answers to these questions:

1) Yes.

2) A lie.

Like, duh.
