"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

what if?

A former teacher of mine always responded to "what if" questions with "What if a frog had wings?" because these "what if" questions seemingly have no merit due to the fact that you can't change what did/will happen. Just as a frog never did, nor ever will have wings...pointless to ask. I beg to differ, but only slightly, from his view on this. I think that these "what if" questions can be great thought provokers depending on the question at hand.

Here is the biggest "what if" that I'm mulling around in that brain of mine right now:
What if, after all of this, my life turns out exactly the way it was always supposed to?

I guess we'll find out, then, won't we?

And what if a frog had wings?
He wouldn't bump his butt on the ground.
