If Life Made any Sense at all
Recently, my dog got out and was on the loose. I saw him about a block from my house, over by the street which is a main highway through town. Being a responsible pet owner and knowing that swine flu is following the trade routes, I loaded him up and took him to our local vet to be tested for the flu. He was fine. We got home and my middle daughter was over visiting and my wife commented that I took the dog to the vet. To which she quizzically remarks, "Why is it that vets have their own special day?" Of course we look at each other somewhat puzzled and ask what are you talking about. So she in turn replies, "You know, in November. What is so special about them that have Veterinarians Day?" This is the same child that when asked, "don't you know how to sew on a button" she said "What do I look like? Betty Crocker".
So then I was forced to watch Ghost Hunters International because regular Ghost Hunters wasn't on. Plus, I'm Mr. Agnostic when it comes to such things. I'm told to limit my remarks because some people may be really interested in the subject matter and just because I'm skeptical, I should keep my mouth shut. OK. They do this EVP thing. Electronic Voice Phenomena. They are in the Czech Republic. Later in the reveal, they hear some EVP garble saying something like, "Help Me"..If you have ever watched Ghost Hunters, you know what I'm talking about. Anyway, I can't help it. I have to ask, "If they are in the Czech Republic, shouldn't the ghost speak in an eastern European dialect and not English?"
If it wasn't for my horse, I wouldn't have spent that year in college. Have you ever been to college because of your horse?
