vertical line Posted on Sep.16.2008 @ 06:36AM EDT by immortal 1

Its funny sometimes how things work out.

After partying at the casino the other night I was walking my dog along the country road next to the parking lot (she waits in the car) when I saw a woman that I know standing next to her car.  Jokingly I yelled out, "Hold it right there.  You're under arrest."

She looked stunned for a moment and then broke out laughing when she saw it was me.  Unbeknownst to me, her girlfriend had just squatted by the bushes next to the road and was taking a pee when I yelled out. 

So she thought she was in big trouble, and the only relief she got was in not getting arrested.  She still had to pee, and badly.

What's funny is that the joke came off without my even seeing her there.

What is the difference between circumstances and habitual experience?

Take your time and really think about it.

I cannot honestly differentiate/separate the two.

What I am saying is that if you really think about it, you have had this resultant experience many times. It just the circumstances that change. They have to. Time makes it so.

But experiences are habitual.

How many faces does fun wear?

This circumstance resulted in one of the many times that you may have had that experience.

We associate the picture with the experience and forget that the two make the one.

Just like you and life.

Isnt that funny.
