Why is there air?


The sun sets on another day…

I am sure I would not be popular if I refereed back to Bill Cosby as anyone role model as it sure looks like he was not a good boy, but he did have a comedy album a long time ago that asked the question “why is there air?” The answer, of course, was to blow up basketballs. 

Seems a little silly, but no more silly than the myriad of items people put out in the world to try to explain easy questions. So as you hear people say they can’t do something because they are afraid, it may as well be to blow up basketballs. Or if they can’t because it would be too easy, same answer, or too hard, same answer. A old acquaintance recently explained to me how good it was to be miserable because it would pay off in the end. Pbbbt. (that can be pronounced a few ways, I leave it to you to figure out)

The truth is, being miserable, living in fear, or falling prey to any of the baser emotions in our lives (not emojis) is just about one of the most ridiculous things that can be rationalized. Being afraid or miserable, just means you are afraid and miserable. Period.

So as the sun sets on another day, realize the world is a better place because you are in it, and make the world a better place by being a part of it, not that random lump on the wall. Oh, and when someone asks “why is there air?” simply say “So I can breath it and live my life like I am supposed to!”

Sleep sweet, catch a falling star, and put it in your pocket….
