Why am I surprised that the evil next door neighbor (not the good one) had his chain saw out and fired up bright and early on Sunday morning? One day, evil neighbor, one day when you aren't expecting it karma will reach up and whack you upside the head. One day......I only hope I'm there to see it.
Why am I surprised that after I stayed up far too late - on a "school" night - that I am extra cranky on Monday morning?
Why am I surprised when I get phone call - from out of the blue - from my dad it just means more worry?

Hmmm, something to ponder...let me get back to you on that whole "calling me out" thing.

Why am I surprised when I receive a text - from out of the blue - from Man-Child just saying he loves me?

Why am I surprised at the obvious lack of turn signals that most cars seem to carry these days.

Why am I (still) surprised when my phone "whistles" at me whenever I have an incoming message? (It's only been six days and I don't get that many incoming messages but still; I should have figured out how to change that by now but to be honest; it's kinda nice to get whistled at by inanimate objects every once in a while.)
Why am I surprised when my land-line rings and it's just a random call? I mean seriously....no one I actually KNOW uses that number anymore.
And mostly, why am I surprised that after staying up to late on a "school" night that I am completely and utterly exhausted by 7:00 pm?
Seriously. After all this time I've spent on this crazy, spinning, globe why AM I surprised?
