background music

for sale
Sometimes you're the windshield
Sometimes you're the bug

Sometimes you are just minding your own business and someone comes along and plows into the back of your minivan…

swing batter
Sometimes you're the Louisville Slugger
Sometimes you're the ball

Sometimes you play the best you can - swing at the good ones, don't swing at the bad ones, and you still have to run laps after the losing game, cuz it is a team sport. Madison is learning to play softball… (hey batter batter)

Sometimes you pay $3000 for a new transmission and a week later the insurance company says your car is totaled and they are going to sell it for parts… (where's that bat?)

dam!
Sometimes it all comes together
Sometimes you're gonna lose it all

Sometimes you get a new laptop and after 2 days of transferring all your files, programs, pictures, etc., you get to work and try to insert your Verizon PC card into the slot only to find it won't fit… (apparently size does matter)

working with turkeysSometimes you get blood drawn (4 vials!) and get a call 4 days later from the nurse saying she doesn't know what to do with it… (I'd like to tell her…)

can you hear me now?
Sometimes your boss calls to tell you they are laying people off but not to worry, you are not one of them… (yet?)

outta here
Sometimes spring break comes and all your kids are whisked off to their other parents' houses and you can go on a quiet vacation! (Bon Voyage Melissa!)


Observations of late 'round these parts. Thanks to Mary Chapin Carpenter for the background music in my head…

Sometimes you're the windshield
Sometimes you're the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you're just a fool in love
Sometimes you're the Louisville Slugger
Sometimes you're the ball
Sometimes it all comes together
Sometimes you're gonna lose it all


~The Bug by Mark Knopfler and Mary Chapin Carpenter

I reckon you just never know what's going to happen next these days. I was complaining to my pastor this week about all of the bad stuff happening to me lately and he reminded me of the man that complained about not having any shoes until he saw a man with no feet. I guess things could be worse.

I like your "Sometimes" quotes.
