There are things, certain oddities, that normal people simply wouldn't do.
Below you will find lovely examples that illustrate what I mean.
1. In the first place, normal people wouldn't find themselves stretched out on the ground in the front yard with corners of the brick walkway gouging into their hands and knees. And they certainly wouldn't be doing it to photograph an ant hill.
Especially not an ant hill they thought resembled a miniature castle.
Normal people wouldn't smile at the irony of the ant population building their
Normal people probably wouldn't try to convince you that those little rises in the

And normal people probably wouldn't console themselves with the thought that their discovery saved their homeschooled siblings from future failure in the subject of geography...only to realize that it is still summer vacation.
3. Normal people wouldn't think that eggplants looked like a little elfin couple. And they certainly wouldn't spend five minutes photographing the elves--I mean, eggplants. No, normal people wouldn't do that.
They certainly wouldn't name the little eggplants either. This blog author might, but she wouldn't share those names. Names that made her family laugh and tell the blog author that she simply was not right. She certainly would not share those with you.
Dearest blog reader, I have reached the startling conclusion that I am not normal. But that's okay. It's those who are not normal--the people who sing in the rain, fly kites in a storm, and...photograph eggplants--these are the individuals whose names will forever live in the annals of history one day.
Or so I'm willing to believe.
Love and normalcy always,
