The WordPress Weekly Photo challenge is: Twist.
I laughed out loud when seeing this.
Does anyone else remember a funny cartoon or status passing through Facebook recently?
Although I can’t recall the exact words, this is the sentiment:
Whenever anything unexpected or crazy or annoying or disturbing or wild happens in your life, don’t despair. Simply think: Plot twist!
Lately I’ve found myself grinning many times as the unexpected occurs and remembering: Plot twist! It has a nice way of calming one down and providing perspective.
Since it’s a photo challenge, I dug in the archives for examples of Plot Twist in my life.
Note the Roman photo up above. Two smiling American tourists in front of the Colosseum. Nice gladiator sweetly asks, “Can I take your photo?” Unsuspecting tourist says, “Of course!” and hands dear fellow camera. Gladiator snaps photo of innocent women before smiling widely and insisting, “That will be ten euro!” Your blogger wanted to take the knife and twist… no, no, no!
Besides refusing to pay, what might have been a humorous thought? Plot twist!
When one is 25 years old with a small baby and one’s $250 Datsun careens into the snowy swamp, what might one think?
You’re catching on.
And, finally, some of you recall this story, don’t you? What might happen when one is nicely meditating in one’s basement and opens eyes to witness a twisting garter snake meditating with one? (Hint. Screaming is not the answer.)
