The Good, Bad and The Stupid

 Life is certainly a combination of extremely good, extremely bad and a level of stupidity in-between that never ceases to amaze me.
If I'm lucky, I find a balance between the extremes that allows me to
"be the best I can be".
On good days I wear "extremely good" like a pro
On bad days I can drown myself in a healthy dose of "extremely bad"
And yes, stupidity humbles me more then I care to admit

What motivated this subject to begin with was a conversation my blog-mate & I had a few days ago.
It was concerning the unthinkable tragedies the people of Japan are facing.
Observations we've made of others' reactions
For instance a comment like:
(not exact quotes but you get the drift)
"Gosh, I hope the new car I ordered wasn't made in Japan 
or that it has already been shipped!"

Walking the Extreme Stupidity path here!
I truly hope this person and others so caught up in their teeny tiny lives receive more compassion than they give when their turn for tragedy comes!  

I apologize for making this blog  a platform for my own rantings and ravings
That was not my intention
Sometimes ya' just gotta rant and rave a bit with "words"
To prevent yourself from kicking the stupidity out of someone!

So..with that all said
I shall pay closer attention to the words I say
And try to keep stupidity at bay
For as long as my feeble brain will permit.

And end this too lengthy blog with a bit-o-humor that includes
the Good, Bad and The Stupid
But includes a chuckle at the end 

Humor seems to bring me balance

I hope it does for you as well
