Things That Made Me Go Hmmmmm Today

Still feeling giddy and hopeful.

These are a few things that made me shake my head today...in different ways.

Heard on NPR:
"I'm terrified. I think he's going to appoint people that blow things up."

"I didn't vote for him...that whole not putting his hand over his heart during the National Anthem just really bothers me." (um...never mind)

And something that I can't say I've ever seen before:
After dropping off Twinkle at school, I was driving Sparkle to school. Something caught my eye. I saw a hawk flying about 5 feet off the ground, like a line drive...carrying a squirrel in its claws (but somehow parallel to it's body). This was not a small squirrel. It looked almost like the hawk was second guessing its ability to fly away with it. Preferring not to think about what awaited the squirrel, I couldn't help imagining the squirrel thinking, "What the....I'm a flying squirrel!! Look at me!!!!"

Do all of these things tie together? I might need some tequila to see the connection.

What will tomorrow bring?

ya - heard some of the post-hysteria also - some from Mr Incredible - reminded him that it is time to pay the piper - and that the new tax rate is projested to be at 39% (would have been projested at 35% with other guy) - not too much to ask. also reminded him of his dear mom's quote: "my checkbook feels better when the republicans are in office, but my heart feels better when the deomcrats are there" - he's better today.
