No Further Questions

I've always wondered if every person in the world eventually comes to a crossroads where he or she is confronted, unavoidably, with the questions: "Am I completely okay? Is the way I perceive the world right, wholesome, and good? Is my character lacking in some fashion that I'm unaware of? When people see me, do they think I'm normal; or do they sort of 'wonder' about me a little bit?"

I began tackling those tough issues this morning during my commute - headed south on I-75 right about Mt. Paran Road. I'm not sure what it is about the Mt. Paran Rd. exit, but if I'm going to have a deep thought before noon; chances are good it'll start right there. Maybe its my lack of cell service from there to Moore's Mill Rd. - I really couldn't say.

Regardless, as I passed by the Northside Drive exit I glanced in the rearview and realized I'd been lip-synching the words to "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" by Cyndi Lauper since Moore's Mill Rd, you know - really getting into it, and a guy in a dump truck one lane over was staring at me.

Girls, after all, just want to have fun.

No further questions.

thank you for this entry in the world of blogs.
i have had these thoughts but thought myself, am i ok?
and is the world as crazy as i think it is?
obviously it is or i (being ok) would not perceive it as being crazy.
and as to the other side of your blog, yes, all girls do want to have fun...... it is just a question of what each considers fun and who they want to have fun with.
take care.....

The real decisive factor is not the fact that you know the words to the song "Girls Just Wanna To Have Fun". The real issue is how did you hear the song? Was it on the radio or on a cd that you own. I am not sure the blogging community can handle the answer...But rest assured, you probably made Mr. Dump Truck's feel better about himself. He may not get to drive a fancy truck and work in a climate controlled office, but at least he won't be made fun of at lunch today! At the end of the day, it is nice to know your actions counted for something!
