On my way to work this morning, I was listening to my favorite radio station (96.5 The Buzz) and was laughing at another silly contest for some tickets to a show. They played three songs in a row and you had to tell them what every song had in common. Not to be a stickler, but they chose something every BAND had in common (we will let that slide). What made it so hilarious was that people were calling in with these ridiculous facts that were true about all three bands and all three songs. Or they’d call in about the genre or about the specific lyrics or the meanings of the songs. The answer the deejays were looking for was merely that every band had or has had an exclamation mark in their name. That’s it. People were super over thinking it (and I never got it).
I think this is just another life lesson to learn. You don’t always have to over think things. The answer could literally (or figuratively) be right in front of your face. You don’t have to take the easy way out, but if you have to work too hard, it might not be right.
I’m going to go back to enjoying my iced hazelnut latte and staring out the window on this gorgeous day. Have fun doing you.
