Do you ever find yourself in the middle of a contradiction?

So I went to the park this afternoon with my brother. We got there right after school had let out and there were a ton of middle schoolers milling around. And as we pull up, we see a couple of guys fighting…really beating the snot out of each other. And there was, of course, a crowd of kids standing around watching and cheering.

All I could do was just shake my head. You know, I have never gotten the whole macho, need-to-pick-a-fight, guy thing. Of course, I’m not a guy, so that may have something to do with my ignorance. But my brother and I talked about how stupid kids can be. I was just dumbfounded…

So then we went to Wal-Mart. My brother and I are wandering around, he’s looking at tshirts. And I found one I just had to get. I’m always amused by the smartass tshirts with obnoxious comments on them, but have never gotten any myself. But I found one today I just COULDN’T live without. (There goes my compulsive shopping again…) It just cracked me up.

And after I got home I got to thinking….when I wear that tshirt, how am I any less juvenile than the kids at the park I was shaking my head at just a few hours earlier?……

Oh well….It’s a funny shirt and I like it. I’ll pick some other day to work on being a grownup.
