My son and I went to go see the fireworks on the fourth of July. Of course we had to park a million miles away and walk to the site. As expected, there were lots of people doing the same thing. Pretty soon we encountered a traffic jam of Homo sapiens. We plodded along at about one mile an hour.
"Moo," I said.
Bubba looked at me. "Moo?"
"Yeah, Bubba, we're like a herd of cattle."
Bubba shook his head. "No, Mama. We're not a herd of cattle. Do you know what this is?"
"I have no idea," I said.
"This is the great human migration. Once a year, on this very special night, humans migrate to see beautiful lights in the sky. Then they return to their homes. Isn't that awesome, Mama?"
Uh, yeah. It was a delight to be a part of such an awe-inspiring event!
He knows how to look on the positive side.ReplyDelete
Of course, that's why I never go out on the Fourth of July.
Hope the fireworks were worth it!
They were pretty good - just a little short by my standards. The show lasted about 20 minutes.Delete
I love your son's outlook. We could take a lesson for him. We'd smile more.ReplyDelete
That's for sure!Delete
I always feel like it's a great human migration whenever it's Thanksgiving time and I have to go buy groceries.
Haha! Come to think of it, I kind of feel the same way!Delete
we actually had great migrations while we were under Turkish occupation a few centuries agoReplyDelete
A few centuries ago. I'm sure you were walking in that migration! ;0)Delete
He looks on the bright sideReplyDelete
Yes, he does!Delete
I would rather stay home, don't feel like migrating or going mooReplyDelete
If Bubba didn't want to go, I'm not sure I would've made the migration.Delete
Yeah, it's a great human migration like Bubba said!ReplyDelete
Bubba knows what he's talking about!Delete
Cool idea. I usually don't care for crowds, but this one seems like a good one.ReplyDelete
I can handle the great human migration once a year. Any more than that would be a bit much! ;0)Delete
I like that one, very smart son Indeed!ReplyDelete
It's amazing how his mind works!Delete
This human stayed inside with a cold one because he's not much for migrating these days.ReplyDelete
Can't say I blame you. Hope you enjoyed your cold one!Delete
What an awesome way to view it.ReplyDelete
I thought it was a pretty creative way to look at things!Delete
Bubba needs to learn the word "diaspora"--if he doesn't already know it, and I won't be surprised if he does.ReplyDelete
I didn't know what it meant, so I looked it up in my dictionary. And guess what? It wasn't in there! So, blog mom, what does, "diaspora" mean?Delete
