I live in a constant state of surprise of the things that haven't happened to me. This morning after I made the bed, I thought, "Wow! I'm so surprised that a snake didn't crawl out of my bed while I was making it."
Now, I have no idea why a snake would be crawling out of my bed as I don't live in a place where there are a ton of snakes, or how one would even get into my house--because if you are prepared for zombies to attack, then you are prepared for snakes--but that was the thought that occurred to me this morning.
Which led me to, "I'm so surprised that the zombie attack of 2012 hasn't happened yet" or "I'm surprised that I've never been struck by lightening" even though common sense dictates to stay indoors during a thunder storm, and I usually do. Other things that surprise me are the fact that I haven't been arrested, been chained to a tree to protest logging, been shot, mugged, won the lottery (even though I don't play it) or starred in a Broadway musical--because according to the tiles in my shower, I sound AWESOME.
On the other hand, maybe these are all just a bunch of "firsts" waiting to happen, because ya know, life is full of surprises.
What surprises you?
