My son is still figuring out the differences between video games/movies/cartoons and reality. He’s seen some of the 1980’s Transformers cartoons and I’ve shown him a few clips from the live action movies. In his mind he’s seen some fun cartoons and video of real live Transformers.

I was kicked out of my apartment back when I was in college. The house I was living in was purchased by a guy that wanted to convert it back into a single family home. One night, all 4 tires on my car were slashed. I had to buy new tires so that I didn’t lose my job but then I couldn’t afford rent on the 1st of the month. I came home from work and all my stuff was haphazardly jammed into a couple boxes in the hallway.
Sometimes a set schedule is reassuring. You know what’s going to happen the next day. No surprises. Sometimes that same schedule can get you down. You know what’s going to happen the next day. No surprises.

It’s my job to take words and twist them around to change their meaning. I love how children just do this naturally as they learn the language. Part of my job is unlearning how to be an adult.
I worked at a place for a few years that expanded and moved to a larger building. A few months later I drove all the way to the entrance of the parkinglot before realizing I was at the wrong location. Fortunately I didn’t attempt to walk in the employee entrance.
