Deep Thoughts Q&A: If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?

THE QUESTION:

If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?

THE MULTI-PART ANSWER:

Best morning drive EVER includes hot firemen and Meatloaf.

ThaliaBrandon.com definetely approves of hot firemen. Definetely.Best. Morning. Drive. EVER!

Here’s the rundown:

Hot firemen flushing a hydrant on my way to drop my son at his summer play group. I’m blasting Meatloaf on the radio, windows down, my son rockin’ out in the backseat. The two guys manning the hydrant stop to thumbs-up my music, and I crawl past and holler a “thank you for your service” out the window. One guy still in the truck lets out a wolf whistle at me. Firefighter closest to my window apologizes for the whistle. I reply that it’s all good since I was checking them out anyway, so turn about is just fair play. He smiles, I smile, I blow a big kiss as I’m pulling away, and the fireman I’d been talking to makes an exaggerated dive to catch it and put it in his pocket, while the other guy manning the hose is looking at him like he’s an idiot and the guy in the truck is laughing his ass off. Win for me!

Totally random, and it feels so good!
