Dress Up

For Pondering:

Even without trick-or-treating and Halloween parties, I dare you to still dress up and have some fun. This year why not make it fun, silly or ridiculous rather than scary?

Columbus Day

For Pondering:

On this Columbus Day, the culturally-biased, heavily redacted history we were taught in school as children, has been updated with a narrative that is closer to the truth. What other inaccurate histories are currently being updated by fact and truth?

Elephant in the Room

For Pondering:

I received so many clever responses to last week’s post that I must share a few. 

There were 15 variations of “the elephant in the room”:

“Ignoring the elephant in the room never stops the elephant from destroying the room.”

“Elephant in the room? What elephant?”

And from the far corners of the obtuse mind:

“These tables are not the right distance apart for social distancing!”

“It’s National Take An Elephant To Lunch Day.”

And one response suggested a political commentary on the upcoming Republican National Convention, which would be politically incorrect of me to share. ; )

During these serious and challenging times, it is good to discover within this online community a pandemic of humor and clever thinking. Thank you for sharing.
