Who is normal, you or me?

I've sometimes wondered whether we live a completely normal life or if we are completely different and weird.

For example, is our week day morning ritual the same as everyone else's?

We do the shower, shave, get dressed, get the paper while the kettle boils, make coffee, make toast, eat toast, drink coffee while reading paper, wake kids, get them breakfast (actually Gabba does that), nag at kids to get ready, I go to work and then God only knows what happens at our house after that until I get home again.

It all seems perfectly normal to me.

Bloody hell it's a boring existence if everyone does that stuff 220 odd days a year. Over and over and over again. If only something slightly out of the ordinary would happen to relieve me of this routine.

I wonder what would happen if I spiced it up a bit. Say, have my toast before I made the coffee? Oh, yeah. I might give that a go tomorrow.

It's some toi toi (I don't know if it's actually spelled toe toe) taken in the dying light on Ocean Beach back last year on our weekend trip to Kawhia. Nice and peaceful and quiet after yesterdays dark and stormy sea.

  • Nice contrast between colors and the gradient in the sky is perfect.

  • Why not throw caution to the wind and have a bowl of cereal instead? Surf the net instead of reading the paper. You know...shake it up abit. Drive a different route to work....

  • Sandy, you seem like a bit of a rebel to me.

  • I feel a crisis coming on.....rebel.....when the boys were little for a treat I would dish up reverse dinner...pudding first then meat and veg.....now they don't want reverse dinner, just the petrol and drinks funds.

  • Ha Ha, Reverse Dinner. Excellent. Gabba, can we do that one day? It'd completely freak the kids out!
