The prompt for the day, over at One Minute Writer, is: PUZZLE. And to me, the most intriguing puzzles ever are people. I have some pretty good ideas about what makes me me, but outside of ourselves, we just don't have any idea what others are thinking, feeling or dreaming.
I have coached a lot of kids soccer. One of the teams I worked with had a boy whom I had coached a few of his siblings. While standing on the side of the field during a scrimmage one day, the dad of said boy and I were watching my daughter and his playing in the dirt. The dad turned to me and said, "I would give anything I had to know what is going through their minds right now!" I looked and saw our daughters sharing a nice healthy meal of.......dirt. WTF!! Our kids were eating dirt. DIRT. it baffled me, and I have been aware of this baffling puzzle phenomenon ever since. It truly has helped me come to grips with dealing with stupid people in our day in and day out lives. I now can look at the stupid masses doing their stupid things and just laugh and shake my head and wonder.....what is going through their head? Of course this is coming from the man with the nickname, Uncle Stupid (that's Tio Estupido for our southern neighbors).
