Sorry for missing last weekend, but we had modem problems.
But everything is working again with the new modem in place and I now get to present to you the column I would have posted last weekend.
HOW OBSERVANT ARE YOU?
We all walk through life and at times think we see things that might not actually be there. I'm not talking about Unidentified Flying Objects. Of course if we knew what they were, they wouldn't be unidentified.
I'm talking about things we might see out of the corners of our eyes, or things that are right in front of us that we don't really pay attention to.
For example, take a good look at the picture below.
Go ahead. Take all the time you need. I'll wait.
|How observant are you? Have you noticed what's unique about this image?|
What did you notice about the image at left?
Younger people might say it's a picture of a beautiful day, but only the most observant will notice that she is crossing a busy street.
Older people might figure she is on her way to work or somewhere important, at least to her.
Wiser people will ponder what was going through the photographer's mind when taking such a beautiful picture, and be thankful that they got to see it.
A lot of people will make some comment: good, bad, or indifferent, about how the woman is dressed.
Some of you might be distracted by the lady in white herself, and that's okay. But this is a family oriented e-zine, so we won't discuss what might be on your mind about her right now.
But guess what?
There's something else going on in that picture too.
Do you know what it is?
Only children and the extremely intelligent will have noticed that the taxi is being driven by a dog!
Take another look if you don't believe me.
But what I want to know is, how did my fellow canine manage to afford auto insurance, let alone reach the pedals and still be able to see over the steering wheel!
A very special thanks to astute Free Choice E-zine reader Nancy A. Hansen for bringing this to my attention.
Have a great week everybody, and please be back here next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!-AtP.
