Some Things I'll Never Understand...

1. Why some people are attractive and others, not so much. :)

2. Why God chose death as the vessel to bring His children to glory.

3. Guys(need I say more?)

4. Why I was born in a rich, easy nation like America.

5. Why the foods that are the worst for you taste the best.

6. Lemurs.

7. Movies like Willow.

8. The people who work at the Rite Aid by my house.

9. Brussel sprouts.

10. Why I'm such an emotional person.

This morning I was on my way to work, minding my own business. I was stopped at a red light when the big semi-like truck in front of me started to roll backward...right into me. The driver said his gears "jumped." O boy...here comes the insurance fun!

I am so glad I drive a big car like Tonto or I would have been squashed! Seriously. When I bought my car, it was between a Mini Cooper and my FJ. Honestly, if I had been in a Mini Cooper today, that backward-driving truck would have squashed me like an accordion. Yet Tonto just has a slightly munched bumper.

I'm so thankful to God!

HS reunions are strange things. You'd think I could probe the creative recesses of my word-nerd brain and come up with something more descriptive, right. Well, I'm sticking with it--they are "strange things."

Don't ask me how, but somehow I got sucked into helping with the planning of my HS reunion. I didn't realize what I was getting myself into. And now the reunion is 3 weeks away and I'm totally stressing out. There is so much I've been assigned to do at the last minute. And how can I possibly say no at this point?

I'm happy to help and I know it will be an enlightening and interesting dinner with my old classmates, so I'm glad to go, but at the same time it seems surreal. I can't be this old, because I don't feel this old! Well, recently my hip has been hurting me when I run. Does that mean I'm getting old too? Lord help me!

I'm dreading the reunion, but I'm also intrigued and excited about it at the same time. Any reunion stories to help me cheer me up? Or freak me out?
