Couldn't Have Said it Better Myself

I had to post this little bit of genius found in the New York Times yesterday.
Writer Benedict Carey, in the opening paragraph of his October 5th article "How Nonsense Sharpens the Intellect", wrote the following:

"In addition to assorted bad breaks and pleasant surprises, opportunities and insults, life serves up the occasional pink unicorn."

How fitting of a life descriptive! Isn't that what this living thing is all about? Bad breaks, surprises, happiness and doldrums- and those very odd moments that really make you wonder if living kind is one big joke. Or a TV show ala "The Truman Show" some other species watches to mock us and our ridiculousness.

And, if you read the rest of the article, I like the suggestion that my accumulation of oddities and unexplainables makes me smarter.
