Sunday, April 12

I understand, it was a hot day, and I like to swim, too, but really....

Thank heavens for friends who pass on valuable information.  Thanks, Jane.

So, did you see the news story today about the woman in Germany who climbed into a polar bear enclosure at the zoo and jumped into their swimming moat--at feeding time no less? Guess what happened?   The polar bear bit her.  Imagine.

 The bear attacks the woman during feeding time at the zoo.

I'm only including this here to remind you that this is Not a Good Idea.  Just so you know.  You'll thank me some day.

Which reminds me of one of my favorite things--The Darwin Awards.  The polar bear adventure would be called a "Near Miss" under their criteria, since the Darwin Awards exist to honor those who improve the species by accidentally removing themselves from it.  It's one of my favorite things.    

Check it out.  You'll feel really good about yourself.

You know, when I read or see things like that 1) I feel like a genius because I WOULD NEVER do something so stupid and 2) I shake my head and wonder, seriously, like what sort of thing did she expect and for the love of all thing crazy.....what did she think would happen???

However, it's things like this that make the rest of us chuckle a bit and the next time we think we are crazy, we only have to think "Polar Bear Lady" and suddenly life will feel all right again~
Thanks for the laugh and I hope your Easter was a great one~
P.S. feel free to borrow anything from my blog that inspires you to write. I'll be back to see what you've come up with! (but let me know so it's in a timely manner on my part!)
