I am not one to boast, at least not about myself unless someone is
listening, but I do give some time to exercising the little gray cells 
in my mind. Many people, no names given, spend most of their time 
yapping while people like me spend their time napping. While napping, I 
am also exercising my mind. 

Some people exercise their mind by doing crossword puzzles. I tried this
but every once in a while I'll think of the right word and then that 
word makes me think of something else and that makes me think of 
something else altogether and pretty soon I'm off on one of my little 
mind trips. 

One thing about these little mind trips of mine, they do not cost very
much and when I come to, I am quite refreshed. 

One danger about my little mind trips is that sometimes I am not alone
when I am tripping out. This can be quite dangerous to my health. 

Last week, for example, I was driving across town and happened to engage
in one of my little mind trips. It must have been a good one because I 
was thoroughly enjoying my trip and then I began to hear in the 
background a variety of words that did not seem connected nor did they 
make sense. These words did not have anything whatsoever to do with the 
little trip I was on at the time. 

Then the words started to fall into some kind of an order. Are... You...
Listening... To... What... I'm... Saying? 

At first, they did not seem connected and to be truthful it rather upset
me because these words were interrupting a very nice mind trip I was on 
at the time. I hate it when I am interrupted by such nonsense. 

For some reason I happened to glance over to my right and was shocked to
discover that the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage was sitting in the 
passenger seat. At first, I thought I was hallucinating. However, she 
was looking back at me! 

I stared at her for a minute and then demanded, “What are you doing in
my car?” 

She gave me one of those looks indicating I was in serious trouble. Then
it dawned on me. We were going across town to go shopping. For some 
reason I had tuned everything out and slipped into a wonderful mind 
trip. 

Well, for the rest of the trip I was listening to a voice but that voice
was not in my head; it was in my ears. Both of them. I had to leave my 
little mind trip for another occasion when I was by myself. 

I must confess that when I get on one of those mind trips of mine I lose
sense of everything around me. I have a very active mind; of course, my 
wife says I have a very active imagination. I am not sure the 
difference, and I am not about to ask her, either. Some mysteries in 
life should be just that. A mystery. 

One mind trip that I get on to about this time a year is Easter. Lately
I have had Easter on my mind. 

I know the word “Easter,” is not a very politically correct word today.
But then I am not running for politics, in fact, I am running away from 
politics as much as possible. I like the word Easter. 

In some places, they are changing the Easter Bunny to the Spring Bunny
and the Easter Egg Hunt to the Spring Egg Hunt. This is supposed to be 
more PC tolerable. After all, it is important that we should be PC in 
everything we do. 

Those people who object to the word “Easter,” I wonder if they really
know where it came from. 

To some the Easter Bunny has some kind of a religious connotation.
Personally, I never discovered what denomination the Easter Bunny is a 
member of. Where does the Easter Bunny attend church? The First Church 
of the Easter Egg Hunt?
