American Gothic, Chicago Art Institute
It just might be a bit pretentious of us to think that we're the only occupants of this vast entire universe. It's possible that God may have created another similar planet with a human race that was created perfect right out of the starting blocks. And they're using us as their Thursday Night Reality Show!
If we bought tickets to a highly acclaimed movie and it didn't deliver any drama, we'd probably get up and ask for our money back. Life's like that. If there wasn't any drama in our lives occasionally, we'd complain of boredom!
As the old saying goes, you can pick your friends but not your relatives. And we all have that one person in each family that you can tolerate spending a holiday with, but would have a very difficult time going on vacation with for an entire week. In fact, I bet you can think of who that person is in your family right now. If not, you're it!
