I hope I don't induce wide spread panic, but I feel it my responsibility to warn you:
I wouldn't be sounding this alarm unless I held unrefutable proof. (You might want to sit down to prevent swooning in your distress.)
You see, yesterday I went to put on a shirt retrieved from the back of my closet . . . and I couldn't button it. It woudn't even reach in the middle. Not only that, the pants I put on were much tighter than they used to be. I came to the only obvious conclusion: Our entire world is shrinking around me. My clothing has simply gotten smaller than it used to be.
I have more proof! This shrinking world phenomena explains another oddity in my life. You see somehow a couple hours of each day have disappeared. There just used to be more time! Until my realization yesterday, I couldn't figure out why. But now I know: a shrunken world! Its decreased size has obviously resulted in faster rotation and shorter days.*
In other completely unrelated news, I've decided to spend less time sitting in front of the computer.
I decided this on my way to spend a couple hours, well, sitting and eating at Panera Bread with my friends. I'm sure that should help. No really.
* My geekiness feels a need to explain a little more: Think of an ice figure skater pulling in her arms while spinning, her rotation speeds up. It is called conservation of angular momentum. If you didn't know of my overly odd love of physics before, I guess you do now. Yes, I spent time finding a web site to explain this even though no one cares. You're welcome.
Nobody from Nobody Called Today. Not only does she have one of my most favorite online names ever (just think of the jokes), she has mastered the art of funny and kid speak. The antics she writes about with her 3 kids make my children seem almost tame, and that, my friends, is hard to do.
Talk about a shrinking world, we used to be in the same Primary (aka Children's Sunday School) at church when my mother was the chorister. When I asked my parents if they remembered her, it turns out my father was also their family's home teacher. Go figure.
