Surprises can be good or bad. A breast cancer diagnosis is a bad surprise and so is finding out your husband has been sleeping with another woman. A good surprise is putting on your winter coat for the first time since last winter and finding a $20 bill in the pocket. Falling upside down crazy in love is even better.
Disasters happen. Are you prepared? Are you ready for an earthquake, tsunami, hurricane or the coming zombie apocalypse? The CDC is ready for zombies, which makes me breathe easier. They get it wrong in every movie and they really botched it up in Max Brooks’ “World War Z.” I’m glad they’re finally practicing for the zombie uprising and mass casualties.
Weirdos are in the eye of the beholder. Did you know some of the weirdest people show up at Denny’s around 2AM? I once saw a guy whose cheeks, ears, nose, lips, and eyebrows sprouted pointy metal objects. His pierced face art gave me the creeps. At least his purple-mohawked-trench-coat-wearing companion was tame by comparison. They stared at me staring at them. I wonder if they thought I was weird.
Enemies are not your friends but Sun-Tzu advises to keep them closer than your friends. Maybe so you can bite them.
Angels are people, too. They don’t have wings or live in heaven. Angels walk among us and appear when you least expect them but need them the most. Sometimes they’re people you know. Sometimes they’re complete strangers. Either way, they show up exactly when they should.
Dreams are your subconscious mind hard at work solving problems, finding answers, showing you a different path, and sometimes, if you’re lucky enough to remember, dreams show you a glimpse into your future.
