Every night when I get in bed, I can't help but think....."I've done this before, zillions of times, exactly like this; ad infinitum." And then I wonder how many other people are getting into bed at that very moment and if they are thinking..."I've done this before, exactly like this."
Every time I see a dead possum in the road, I wonder how many other possums are lying dead that that very moment all across the land. Then I wonder how there can be so many of them left, since so many get killed every night.
Sometimes when I am stopped for a red light, I wonder how many other cars are stopped for red lights at that very moment, all across the world, and are those drivers wondering too?
Sometimes when I am floating in the pool on a sunny day, I wonder how many people are doing that too, and whether the people on the plane that just passed over head could see me, and if they wanted to be floating in a pool too.
Sometimes when I am petting my cats or when they are lying on my lap, I wonder how many others are doing that very thing at that moment - and how many are petting dogs - and I wonder if they know how lucky they are.
Do you ever have thoughts like these? Or am I just weird?
