Naps, text ‘screamers’ and GPS

As you know, my mind works in mysterious ways, though most people just think of it as bizarre. Here are some of the things rattling around in there lately.

• When I was a kid, I hated to take a nap. Some of the biggest arguments with my mother were over the need for me to nap. I take it all back, Mom — I now love naps.

Now it’s my favorite vegetable.

Nothing is quite so bad as that moment during an argument when you realize you’ve been wrong all along. I get that a lot.

I don’t understand social media all that much but I do know that TYPING IN ALL CAPS IS SUPPOSED TO MEAN YOU’RE SCREAMING. So why do some people “scream” all the time online? Do they scream all the time in their daily life as well? Maybe they are just screaming in their heads.
