Oh My Brain…
I know I have a unique view on the world sometimes.
In fact, I kind of enjoy that.
Sometimes, it wearies the people around me.
Sometimes, it even perplexes me.
An example. A few years back, I was in a department store with a friend. We were looking for a gift for another friend’s wedding. By the escalator, there was a sign. It said:
“Elevator located in China.”
I was honestly confused.
“What the hell!?” I shouted. “What good does an elevator do me all the way over in China? And where is it? Bejing? Tiananmen Square? What the sam hell??”
My patient friend pointed out…”Uh…China…you know, like plates and cups?”
Yeah. I’m sharp as a marble.
What got me thinking about my backwards brain today was when I passed by a local church.
The sign outside declares it to be a “Transfiguration” church.
I’ve never heard of a Transfiguration church, and I’m sure it’s something quite legitimate and spiritual.
But to me, a Harry Potter reader, I can’t help but think….
As people sit there, solemnly praying, you keep hearing that *pop* sound.
The minister says, “Let us pray.”
*pop* He’s a horse.
*pop* A rabbit.
*pop* A cat.
*pop* A goat.
*pop* A donkey.
And let’s be honest, the visual image cracks me up every time.
Every single dingle time I drive past that church.
Ugh, what a brain!
