You ever stop to take a moment, step back, and observe yourself? I had a little chuckle at myself a few mornings ago as I stopped and wondered…why am I drying flowers on my toaster oven, in such a strangely ordered arrangement?
And, why do I continue to take photos of my own city like a tourist, each time I have occasion to run downtown? Like I’ve never been there before? I was clickin’ my camera merrily again last Monday morning!
How come I like taking photos of my food so much? Food photographer in another life? You ever had roasted chickpeas on your salad? Delicious!
Why do I get a kick out of placing my snacks in perfect symmetrical order on my kitchen counter?
Why am I collecting tiny little quotes, and coffee bottle tops that say ‘Good Luck’, in two itty bitty jars? If you haven’t tried Stumptown cold brewed coffee…give it a try! You’ll wake up real fast…
Why would I hang dangerously out of my window to watch a bird eating another bird?
Wait, one more time…why are my meals symmetrical?
Why can’t I put down the scary stories, even though I freak myself out every time?! Ahhhhh! I love the scary stories!
Why do I insist that all the jumping spiders in my house are my pets?
Why do I always swoon when I’m in the same room with a cheese platter? I’m an aspiring vegan with a cheese obsession! Cheese…
Why do I love my writing desk to be both crazy colorful and perfectly organized at the same time?
Why must I eat every radish in a bowl in a row, like a crazed bunny?
I digress, but…look at those eyes! How could you not want a house full of jumping spiders for pets? I think I should start naming them…
Well, to all of these self-reflective questions, and to many others, there was only one answer….
This tee-shirt was a gift, and it explains it all. Thanks Aunt Marie!
