Love is blind

I was following heidi and mike into niland today. As we approached the intersection of main st and hwy 111, a tractor trailer full of monsters passed us going north. Mike turns north and drove past the now-pulled-over tractor trailer of monsters, which I very clearly see (see photo). Mike drives a short way, pulls over, and I pull alongside him.

"we'll head back the way we came" he says.

"good! " I reply. " I want to get a better picture of the monsters"

they both look puzzled. "monsters?" mike says, with a glance at heidi.

"monsters" I reply with a laugh. "on that tractor trailer. Are you guys blind?"

heidi chuckles, after glancing knowingly at mike. I have not been feeling well, and obviously have a fever to go with my ear infection....."maybe we're not blind, but someones delirious" she laughs.

duh! methinks they should make less moo-eyes at each other, and pay more attention to those subtle oddities on the road......

Those purple dino's where awful cute, but my attention was correctly focused! I likely won't notice the next ones either! Yes, I believe with Katie around, there could be more purple dinos in our future...

I mean, think about it. just the phrase "a tractor trailer full of monsters"......how often does that come up in conversation?!?

Have you ever seen the video test where you are told to concentrate on something and then a large gorilla walks through the frame? The vast majority of people miss the gorilla entirely.

Gorilla? I missed it. I'm positive they said it was a moonwalking bear too. What I notice all the trivial junk and miss the important stuff.

Monsters....nah...I think they are supposed to resemble the cartoon characters from DragonTales (with a catchy little tune btw) At 50, i watch this tiny tv show when i can. Lightens my day every time. Try and find it if you can. These critters bring lightheart and songs
