the truth about truths

the other day i was looking for a cd case. i have two of them....a small blue round one, and a large grey square one. i keep them both in the rondyvan.
well, i wanted something in the small blue round one. i searched and searched and searched the whole van for the small GRAY round one. couldn't find it anywhere. note that i said gray. in my mind i had transposed the colors. once i had identified that i wanted the small gray cd holder, that became my "truth". i could not see anything else. the darn thing was right on the dashboard, and i couldn't see it.
just thought i'd share that experience.

one of my favorite sayings:

 "just because someone speaks the truth, does not mean he knows the truth"

something i have to remind myself of now and then!

I'm going to admit, I giggle a bit at that post. But I can definitely relate, telling yourself something as a fact when it is, in fact, the opposite.

Kate, I think it is a sign of your age. I'm sure Charlene will agree. It's almost like when I am out working in the garage, and I go into the house to get the kitchen scissors. I get to the kitchen and can't remember why I'm there, so I grab a soda and go back out into the garage. It is then that I realize I forgot the scissors. LOL

yes. when I'm 100% positive I'm right, beyond doubt, that's when I'm most likely to be wrong.

and nope, it's not a sign of age, just the human condition.
