Some surprises are a bit more than i can take!
Oh, I am not fond of surprises. I am a believer in believing I can handles anything as long as I know what I am dealing with. My curiosity is deep and wide. I do want to figure everything out, and I am smart enough to know I can't. That won't stop me from trying, though!
I think the older I get, the more too tired I am to bother figuring everything out. I'd rather just live -- perhaps blissfully unaware of some things.
Your comments are always appreciated... they make me smile! :-)
