Some Things Can Still Surprise Me. . . .

. . .cool temperatures -- you know, during Fall, when it's supposed to be cool.
. . .a hug from a friend that admits she's not a "hugger" person
. . .a glance from my kid in church telling me he's listening.
. . .an e-mail from some long-lost students that still like me
. . .celebrities "accidentally" letting profanity slip during the Emmys.


But this is the kicker. . . .(so to speak)

. . . a man who clearly was wrongly accused of his wife's murder is now being treated like a criminal. O.J. Simpson, a thief? Why, that just cannot be. Not in my world.


I thought it was bad enough 12 years ago, hot summer afternoons, me pregnant with Edison. . . O.J. running from the police in a white Bronco. . . .all of my afternoon programming pre-empted by news coverage. Holy Moses on a Bicycle! (Thanks, Chick. . .I love that one!)

But now - - its like deja vu all over again. I mean, the odds of a clearly innocent man being falsely accused twice are just staggering. Surely they have accused the wrong man.

Geez Louise.

[I am sorry. But, from time to time, I have to mutter a "Geez Louise" or a "Puh-lease" because I'm 43, monumentally cynical, and just cranky enough to have something to say. It won't happen again. . . well, at least not until someone else gets away with murder, and then complains about being called a "thief."]

Last night I dreamed that you and I had dinner together! It was crazy!

Then I woke up and thought, "You know, we could actually do that!"

Which was even MORE crazy!
