I got in my morning run today and was in the shower thinking about the things I wanted to accomplish. I knew I wanted to wash laundry, which got me thinking of the irony that I wash all of my laundry in cold water because it saves energy and the clothes don’t shrink; but there I was showering in hot water thinking about how I’m enjoying shrinking from running.
Oh the irony.
Okay, I did get a little wrinkly from the water… HA! Get it?! Hmm… No? Okay… moving on.
In other news…
A friend posted an article about a controversial topic (euthanasia) on Facebook. I read the article. I read the comments left by people she knows about the article. I left my comment. I read the comments left by people who didn’t read the article, only the headline, and shook my head at their fanatic, moral outrage that someone was euthanizing infant twins. Here’s the gist – it was two 45-yr old men who were deaf and were going blind and they CHOSE to be euthanized. It’s actually a poignant article. It was not about the presumed infants the morally-outraged one made note of in their comment.
So I got to thinking about how many people there are who start railing about this topic or that, or commenting on this article or that, but yet either don’t know anything about the topics or haven’t read the article. You have to know a little something about what’s in question before you start debating it – at least that would be the intelligent way to go about things.
So, things I think about…
