My husband and I were driving down the road, and there was a roadkill opossum off to the side. This conversation happened:
Me: Wow, a dead opossum. It really makes you think, doesn’t it?
Andy: Yes, definitely.
Me: It’s like, one day you’re just walking along, going about your business, and then suddenly – SPLAT! – it’s all over. It shows how fragile life really is, you know? We need to live each day to the fullest, make the most of every moment, because you never know when it could all be over. This really puts things into perspective. We need to stress less and live better. Have fun. Enjoy the day while we still have time left on earth.
Andy: *looks at me like I’m an alien*
Me: Uh…was that not what you were thinking?
Andy: No. When you said, “it makes you think,” it made me think, “Huh, there must be a lot of opossums that live around here.”
THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is a perfect example of how my husband and I are different. I was going to write some further commentary, but I don’t even think it’s necessary. The conversation speaks for itself.
Happy Wednesday, y’all!
