It’s sad and scary and maybe even ridiculous that we live in a time when our beliefs keep us apart and the facts don’t matter. We cling to our own thoughts and won’t listen to anyone else’s point of view. We’ve lost so much as humans and it may lead to our destruction.

  1. I tell you what’s ridiculous…that my mother voted for Donald “grab em by the pussy” Trump and still calls herself a woman. I just don’t get it. How can she support that guy and still look herself in the mirror every morning.

  2. Many years ago, my husband at the time and I were out having cocktails with another couple. The woman was so upset at being in a smokey bar, she said “this is ridiculous” and walked out in below zero temperature in WI & walked home in the middle of night.

  3. She was soaring in the sky. He was piloting the Piper Cub and talked her into going up with him for the first time. They were at the beginning of their relationship and she was learning about him. The ride was very enjoyable until the moment when he cut the motor. It was dead quiet. He stared sideways at her with a strange look on his face. She could tell he wanted to see just how much he frightened her. She had to work hard at maintaining a semblance of calm. She stared him down. She smiled at him and said, “I’d like to have you get us back to the airport now. This was a ridiculous stunt on your part.” He’d proven to her what she originally suspected: he was a bully. She had no room in her life for idiots.
