Ever Had One Of Those Days?

Sometimes you have days that go perfect and sometimes you have days that go not so good.  But sometimes you have days that make you say, “Hey, what’s going on?” because everything is so weirdy weird.  Ever had one of those days?

Today was one of those weirdy weird days for me.  First of all, I went with my grandpa to visit my Great-uncle Earl at the retirement residence.  It was in the morning at coffee break time except this time when we were over there,  Great-uncle Earl kept falling asleep when we were talking to him.  He never did that before when we were visiting but I guess probably all the hot weather knocked the Skittles out of him so he was sleepy.  Sometimes that happens to me if it’s superly hot when I’m playing outside.  When I go inside, I’m so tired I can hardly keep my eyes open except I do because if I don’t and I fall asleep, then at night-time I have boatloads of trouble going to sleep.

Then my grandpa and me, we went to this fast food place he likes for lunch, and I got the three-piece chicken strip lunch deal.  Except I got four strips instead of three, so I let the lady know there was a extra strip and she said, “That’s all right.  They’re small.”  That was kind of weird I think because my mom says restaurants order stuff by knowing how big servings are and how many servings the restaurant sells every week and stuff like that.  I hope she doesn’t get in trouble with her boss for giving me a extra chicken strip.

On the way home, we went past the same gas stations we went past when my grandpa picked me up except that all the gas prices changed in the little bit of time in between going and coming back, and every gas station changed the gas prices the same exact amount of pennies.  How weird is that?

The next thing that was weirdy weird was when I got back home and my mom was looking at my blog with a funny look on her face.  She said there were a couple of messages she didn’t want me to see because they didn’t feel right to her.  That was superly bizarro because who writes weirdy weird stuff on a kid’s blog anyway?

And like that’s not enough weirdy weird stuff happening all in one day, I asked my mom what she was making for supper and she said she forgot to take meat out for supper!  She never forgets to do that.  I didn’t want her to feel bad so I told her that maybe we could just have grilled cheese sandwiches and homemade fries, and she said that was a great idea (so that’s what we’re having for supper tonight).  That’s also kind of weird because my mom doesn’t usually make lunchtime food for supper, and she hardly ever lets me pick what everybody gets to have to supper.

So that’s how my day went (plus some other weirdy weird things I didn’t write about).  How about you?  How did your day go?  Was it weirdy weird or good or not so good, and how come you think it went that way?  You can let me know either here on my blog or over on my Facebook page or even maybe on my Twitter feed if you want.

P.S. You ever think the word weird looks weird?  Me, too.

Sunshine, Water, and Slivers Of Grass

Today is the beginning of September and in three more weeks, the calendar says it’s going to be Fall already.  That’s really fast, don’t you think?  But how fast Fall is getting here isn’t what I’m talking about on my blog today.  Today, I’m talking about how happy grass is.

Probably you think I’m just making that up but my brother Aaron, he goes to college, and sometimes at college he gets to do really important college stuff.  Sometimes that important college stuff means he has to do some researching on the Internet.  Anyway, that’s how he found out that grass is happy, and after he found out, I found out because he showed me what he found out.

First off, let me show you the meme he found on the Internet that explains how come grass is happy.

Single Blade Of Grass
Just click on the picture and you can see it open up in another window so you can look at it and then keep on reading my blog.

The sliver of grass has faces in it, and the faces all have great big smiles and great big happy eyes.  They even have happy hair that jumps up on the top of their heads because they’re so happy.   And plus, the colors are happy colors:  yellow, green, and blue.  I know that some people will say, “Hey, there’s black in there, too” but not really there isn’t any black.

When you do a microscope look-see, you have to put the specimen on a slide and then slip it under the focusing part of the microscope.  Then you have to focus everything so it’s nice and clear, and not all fuzzy and crazy looking.  So the black that’s there isn’t part of the grass.  It’s part of the background so you can see the grass sliver way better.

Grass only gets green when it gets lots of good water and sunshine so it can be healthy, and when you’re healthy you’re happy, so the grass sliver must be from a happy lawn somewhere close to the person that made that picture from the slide.

That means only one thing:  If you want to be happy with a big smile and big happy eyes and happy hair that jumps up on the top of your head because you’re so happy, you have to make sure you’re healthy, and that means gets lots of good water and sunshine every single day.  And food.  I forgot to say food before but I know that people put food that’s good for making plants and grass grow better and stay healthy, and that’s the same for people.  We need good food that makes us healthy, too.

So the next time you think that you’re too big to be happy or you don’t think it’s so important to eat good food and get lots of good water and soak up a lot of good sunshine, just remember this picture of the sliver of grass because that sliver of grass could be you.
