In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

Deja Vu All Over Again

I have a theory about deja vu. (No, I haven't experienced it in a long time.) It seems more logical to me, although those that like the idea of premonitions better might not feel the same.

My theory? The human brain is hard-wired to anticipate danger. With that hard-wiring comes the crunching of possibilities, the actual occurrences, and the results. Deja vu, is when the subconscious mental creation of possible events coincide with actual events. Call it a mental jackpot. Three sevens rolling up is rare, but possible. Subconsciously, the events were anticipated, and actually happened. The feeling the event happened before it only a reaction to an unusual sequence that coincided with anticipated results.

You can now return to your regularly scheduled thought process.


  1. I have always said (Yes. I've ALWAYS said this): Life would be so much better if we had our own personal soundtrack in the background. Then we'd know (via the drum beats) not to go in the basement when the lights suddenly go out, and we'd always know (via the chipper music) that something good was coming our way. Yep. I've always said that.

    1. I think my music would be a cross between Benny Hill and the shark music from "Jaws". Sorta of a yackety terror theme, with occasional snippets of drinking music.
