Three thoughts for today
Somewhere in the muttering madness of my mangled mind is the a little voice that often enquires why? Not the big philosophical why, not a theological why nor scientific or for that matter anything so grand. My little why amuses itself with the minor questions of the universe, insignificant examples like:
- Why do people get angry about the apostrophe, does it kill, maim or maul?
- When I ask for black coffee, why does the question ‘do you want milk?’ come in reply, its black, not white.
- Rules, they are tools, they are not laws or divine utterances, if something has a rule, why do you let it control you, rather than question why it may be there in the first place.
