What a Crazy World We Live in (standard:humor, 907 words)

I don’t have to know who I’m encouraging but sometimes my crazy activities do in fact encourage somebody along the way. Only in heaven will I realize how many people I have encouraged this way.
 



Driving home from an appointment across town, my wife and I encountered
some crazy driver weaving in and out on the road in front of us. The 
fact that there was not an accident was somewhat surprising. 

“What,” The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage exclaimed, “is wrong with
people?” 

Looking at her and laughing, I said, “People today are crazy!” 

Together we laughed, knowing it was true. If there ever has been a time
that people were crazy, it is today. 

What a crazy world we live in these days. Just when you think it can't
get any crazier, it does. 

We went shopping at the grocery store one day, and when we came out and
got into our vehicle, I was laughing. My wife looked at me and said, 
“What are you laughing about?” 

“That lady in there,” I said, still laughing, “was wearing the craziest
dress that I've ever seen. She sure was crazy.” And I laughed some 
more. 

She looked at me, smiled and said, “You do know that was not a woman,
don't you?” 

The smile disappeared from my face, and I just stared at her and said,
“You got to be kidding?” 

I agree that people aren't what they seem to be in real life. There
appears to be a crazy virus, and it comes out just a little different 
for each individual. 

It's hard to comprehend the level of craziness that is in our world
today. A mask cannot control this crazy virus, but it's a start to 
cover up that crazy face. 

There was some Hollywood celebrity; I don't know who, but when they had
their baby said that they would wait until the baby was old enough to 
make its own decision as to its gender. When I first heard that, I 
thought they were making a joke, but then I found out they were very 
serious about it. 

When I heard that, I felt sorry for the baby that had to grow up in such
a crazy family. If they are crazy about this, what else are they crazy 
about? 

It seems to me that each generation has its own definition of crazy.
Each generation gets crazier with their definition probably to 
out-crazy the former generation. 

Of course, as The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage reminds me, nobody
could handle me if there were not so many crazy people out there to 
compare. So, I think by that “nobody,” she was referring to herself. 

I admit that in certain areas, I am crazy. But, of course, some think
I'm crazy all the way through, which may be entirely accurate. 

Someone told me, “One's crazy is another person's laughter.” The crazy
people out there in the world cause so much laughter. 

I'm not sure how you would define crazy. Each person has a different
strain of craziness. The best way to define crazy is something that 
looks and sounds odd to the person watching and listening. 

Someone may be looking at me, thinking I'm crazy. But, of course, to a
certain degree, they are correct. Everybody is crazy in their own 
right. So we have a right to be crazy. 

As long as my crazy doesn't adversely affect someone else, what's the
harm? 

I learned a long time ago not to be offended when someone refers to me
as crazy. Most of my relatives refer to me as crazy, but I'm never 
offended.
