So . . . as the Channel 8 News here in D/FW was going off, they showed a shot of our gorgeous sunset. The newscasters quipped, “It was magnificent. And if it looks different tomorrow at this time . . . it was nice knowin’ y’all.” “See you on the other side,” from GHOSTBUSTERS, came to mind.
I know people are being silly about it. But just think . . . here’s the scoop.
1) Yes, it was stated that no one knows the date of the end of the world–but this means you should be prepared ANYTIME, so it doesn’t hurt to take stock and repent now and then, and do something you really want to do, at least. Be ready anytime.
2) It says the day will come like a thief in the night. What better time to actually do the end of the world than a time when everyone is making fun of it and NOT expecting it, perversely? This is just the kind of thing that the Universe would find amusing, I fear.
3) I played the lottery tonight because I figured I would win because the world would be ending and I’d never get down to Austin to claim my $$. I did win $12 (which I haven’t redeemed yet–I’d better hurry.)
Anyway. Y’all go do something you really want to do tomorrow. The Wildflower Music Festival is going on here in Richardson (despite the thundershowers that show up every few hours) and I can hear the bass and a muffled vocal from my front yard. There are some good groups playing this year. Mama wanted to go, but by the time she’d make it all the way from the parking lot to the fest pushing that walker, she’d have to lie down and rest. We really need some kind of parking sticker or hangtag, but the doctor is Mean and will not give it. *sulk* I wrote a song for the festival a few years ago, and I still like the song, but I never have gotten it recorded in any kind of decent way. Maybe next year.
If there is one, of course.
In either case, I’ll see you here or there.
Go be serene for a while. It’ll drive your enemies crazy.
