An April Fool
"A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five."
~ Groucho Marx
Big smile when I came across this quotation – so on point and timely.
It’s either my age (hormonal imbalance and all that jazz) or the myriad of thoughts swirling about my brain (do this, do that…no, do this first and then do that…) but I’m having trouble making sense of the world these days. In fact, I’m having trouble making any kind of sense - period.
My youngest helps – he very kindly points out my flawed thinking processes and occasionally manages to fill in the blanks for me.
I think a five year old would be even better. A little less judgmental, low on the sarcasm and would provide some much-needed clarity. Children have a knack for seeing the world as it is, for getting priorities straight.
Truly, there are days I think I’m nucking futs.
Maybe it’s just a case of spring fever? The warm weather has finally arrived! Had my hair all chopped off in celebration. I feel like a new woman - still “futs” but with a different look. Wonder what I’ll do next? The possibilities are endless... Skip town? Change my name? A singing career with Oreneta?
I need that five year old.
But just a rental – not to own. I’m not that crazy.
