A selection of items on Chick A’s mind today, for your reading pleasure.
For the past three days, there has been an unusually large number of robins in my yard. Like, maybe two dozen or so at a time. Isn’t that weird? Why are they all here all of the sudden? Has a new worm family moved in? I’ve never seen this before, it strangely weirds me out.
I get so mad every fall because I have this desire to take a photo of the trees around my property once a day starting at the end of August until all the trees are bare in the winter. I think that’ll be a cool photography project, but for the last four years that I’ve aspired to reach this goal, there’s always been that one day that I walk outside and say, “Shit! They’re already orange!! Dammit.”
One perk to being single is that you don’t ever have to put that much thought into meals if you don’t feel like it. The times I’ve been single, I’ll maybe eat yogurt, a cheese stick, a handful of chocolate chips, and like some slightly stale crackers that I found in that back of my pantry and be completely fine. Imagine offering that at your family dinner?
I’m extremely focused on things that don’t really matter and have incredible attention deficits in regards to things that REALLY matter. I just spent two hours working on a logo for a business I don’t even own. But, I have months of work to do on a project for my *actual* business.
I think “amazeballs” is one of the best words that has come about in my lifetime.
Why can’t food trucks come around neighborhoods like the ice cream truck, playing music related to their cuisine and surprising people?
I’m very morbid. Whenever I get a card, I have a hard time throwing it away because what if this is the last time I have their signature?
Even though I am a HUGE fan of candles, I get annoyed with how much they cost sometimes. Like, $40 to light something on fire??
Are you ever texting with someone and you keep typing the wrong thing or autocorrect keeps changing the word you’re trying to type over and over again and you get the maddest you ever get?
Can plants really benefit from me talking to them?
A lot of things sound so easy to do in my head, like building a table, but I know that if I actually tried, it would be so incredibly hard and I would probably cry from frustration.
Why do people put “Baby On Board” signs on their cars? Listen, no matter who is in your car, I really don’t want to hit you.
Think about how friggen strong the roots of trees are! I mean, trees are so tall and heavy and the roots underground are just holding on for dear life every day. That sounds exhausting.
I need to learn more about how recycling works. I just found out yesterday that if you send an empty jar of salsa to recycling but haven’t rinsed it out, it’ll get rejected. First off, are they hand sorting all of this and checking if they’re clean? And you’d think there would be a process that cleans all the glass anyways, you know? I need to research this.
If I put a piece of outgoing mail in my mailbox and don’t put the flag up and my mail carrier comes by and puts mail in my mailbox and sees my outgoing mail in there, will they not take it?
