I have concluded that life, as it stands out in the public arena, is a very confusing thing. As I watched the news and see scandal after scandal unfold and people trying to dance around the facts so that they come out looking good, I am reminded of how that doesn't work for me.
I have a new TV show I want to pitch to someone. I am calling it, "Dancing with the Idiots." The genius of the show is there is no shortage of contestants. The problem with this show would be who is the idiot to beat all idiots?
Since I am not a very good dancer this does not work for me.
I think the difference is, I have to answer to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Believe me, she was not born yesterday but I will not give the exact year for obvious reasons. I used to do that but that is when I learned I could not dance, at all.
When I was very young and more confused than I am today I thought I could get away with anything. Believe me, I tried. I could write a book, but then there are so many people I would not want to read it that it would not be worth publishing.
One problem is associated with this kind of thinking. If you get away with something, who in the world can you brag to about it? If I do something behind my wife's back and actually get away with it, where is the consolation prize?

A tourist noticed a man sitting by the ruins of a home that had been blown away by the winds of a tornado. Puzzled he asked, "Was this your home?"
"Yep," he said.
"Any of your family blown away with it?" the tourist continued.
"Yep. My wife and kids," came the reply.
"My goodness, why aren't you out looking for them?" the stranger wondered.
"Well, the wind is due to change in a moment," he said, "so I might as well wait right here until it brings them back."
