"There's no original idea under the sun," is a saying I heard all my life. It is true. I know this because no matter what I think of, if I Google key words, someone somewhere has writen something about it, including some guy who wrote about this obscure thought I had yesterday:
What's up with this Classmates.com ad? I mean, is Classmates.com insinuating it's ironic that this girl, obviously an English major, married the school football star? I don't think it was a shotgun wedding--smart girls rock!
Sub Topic: Why Can't I Sing Harmony?
I hear you--I sit near you in church, and I recognize that you're singing harmony. Therefore, I'm pretty sure I'm not tone deaf. I am distracted from worship because your voice is so pretty. I think, "What is this mystical gift that allows her to weave that angelic sound with her voice?" I mean, I hear every different note you're singing, and I can even hear ahead of time where you're going next, but I cannot do it to save my life.
Sometimes, just for fun, I make my husband and kids try work with me. They have to hold a note for a really, really, really long time, and then I dart around with my "vocal instrument" searching to plug in my note at the magical bull's eye. Sometimes I'm wildly successful, finding the note before they run out of air. Usually they can't hold the note very long,though, because they start laughing in the middle of my search, so the pressure is on for me to find my note quickly. Let's just say I'm not wildly successful very often, unless you count making the other person laugh as plan B.
