Be Careful What You Pray For


Be careful what you pray for

Ever think of that?

For the "Peanuts" prompt at Real Toads. We could choose our own comic strip, so I chose my favorite one, "Pearls Before Swine" by Stephan Pastis. The crocs are always trying to eat their zebra neighbor, but are too dumb to catch him.

I had a good laugh at this, Shay. Love the crocs vernacular.

The existential angst expressed here is metafictionally superlative and cogito-wise, absurdo sum lauda. And as ever, the motes of cosmic truth are quite dazzly if one looks for them.

I'm sure God and whole bunch of others are begging me to shut my big mouth. Retirement hasn't slowed you down, it seems...

Stop axing for so much and just tell God "thank You".
