Pack of Cards

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could look at life and say “You’re nothing but a pack of cards!” and then wake up?

  1. I get this.

    1. I know. Wonderland can bite sometimes.

      1. Just remember, you are not alone in Wonderland.

        1. Thank goodness I have my merry band of rebels.

          1. Oh yes, and merrily says I.

  2. I don’t know. I just keep hoping my alarm clock will yell, “Psyche!” and tell me I don’t really have to go to work.

      1. If I figure out how to make it do that I’ll let you know.

  3. If only! Ha-ha. 🙂

    1. I used to think I just wanted to sleep. Now maybe I need to be awake. Wait, I confused myself.

  4. Damn, “Monday – still life.”

    1. You do things, and then . . . you have to do more things.

  5. yep – that would be the jackpot!

    1. It would be my jackpot. At times.

  6. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could grab the person or thing that’s bothering you and shake them, and they’d turn into a kitten?

    1. Better than a pig.

    2. Throttling kittens is fun . . . wait, I get what you’re saying. And yes, it’s better than when Alice’s baby turned into a pig. Mine just turned into a puppy that growled at me. It’s early.

  7. Remember the episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer where she’s poisoned and wakes up in a psych ward and they told her high school and the vampires and everything were a delusion and she’d been institutionalized and the entire show was in her head?

    And at the end she decides the banal reality of the psych ward is the delusion, but the story leaves either possibility open.

    The question is, would it truly be better to wake up? It could be worse.

    1. I just realized all of you and everything is my nightmare. Good luck.

  8. Not if you’re a professional poker player.

  9. Man, this made me think more than any other much longer posts I’ve read today.

    My thinking went something like this– “Oh gosh, yes, I get this! Oh good, Mer already said that. Now I don’t have to deal with the awkward part of my brain gets nervous when I leave comments. Oh, other people took it slightly different. Not a big deal, but maybe I should comment. I wouldn’t trust my alarm. Would you then be shaking a kitten, because that’s awful, and it might teach people to try to get along faster than anything… so I guess I approve. What’s wrong with pigs? Is this code- is Alice a slayer? In a way, life does let you change what’s happening with thought. Is that too new-age for this blog? Probably. Is it too new-age for me? Maybe. I don’t know, life, stop making me quantify you. Okay, I definitely need to leave a comment. It should say for a short post, 23 words, it really got me thinking. Do contractions not count as two words? ahhhh!”

    Right. I’ve decided I probably need to stop with the coffee at this point. Great post– I totally get it, and based on the category, I hope you feel better soon.

    1. You think a lot like I do.
