I Love Irregular

photos 374
        If a tree falls in a forest…
Never mind.
This happened during the night, and Mr. and Mrs. Clueless continued to sleep soundly. I mean after all, it was only RIGHT OUTSIDE OUR WINDOW.
        Our conversation this morning.
My husband, casually:  “Did you see what happened to your tree?”  (Somehow during the night I gained full ownership.)
        And so it is a new day- a new world at my house and in my yard.  I think that is one of the reasons why I love this place so much.
        It is so IRREGULAR.
        I love irregular. 
Case in point.
Many,many years ago, when we lived in San Antonio, I went to do a little shopping at K Mart. I then heard the siren’s call.
“Attention K Mart shoppers.”
All of a sudden there was a blue light special and women began swarming a center aisle table of men’s, irregular, double knit pants in hunter green. 
        I grabbed a pair, paid the sale price , and headed home.
What was the irregularity?  The zipper was an inch long.
        Our house was certainly irregular when we bought it, my flower beds are loved but weeded irregularly, I preferred irregular students, and my favorite decorator fabric is at the back of the store, of the irregular variety.

        My irregular tree splitting apart last night revealed the sun this morning. 
        God likes irregular too.

...and I admire your "irregular" attitude toward what some would consider to be an aggravation! After all, it is YOUR tree! Very enjoyable and uplifting post. After reading this, I feel certain that I need an irregular attitude adjustment :)

THAT's why I like you so much. I certainly have a bit of an "irregular" personality and I like that quirk in other people. When you hear "it's just Marla"....well, now you get it. Wouldn't our lives be a tad, er, boring??? if we didn't look for and marvel at the irregular?

Loved the stories.

Irregular...
arn't we all...when it comes down to it?

That's why you play well with others Laura!
You like irregular...and we all are in some way...
The ability to overlook others shortcomings is a virtue....
God not only loves irregular...

You've got a super outlook. That's the way life is, irregular!

trash talk said...

Is throwed off the same as irregular? If so...count me in! Thank goodness God loves irregular or I'd be left out in the cold.

P.S. The fact that those pants were green DOUBLE KNIT didn't make 'em irregular enough?

Great post, gave me the irregulars!

Once, and only once, I bought irregular socks. One sock came up higher than the other. Irregular? I say trendy! I still wear them. I think the Hip- Hop guys will be doing it this way soon enough...

all hugs,

I'm sitting here in a small town Mexican hotel laughing my head off. 1" zipper!! I wish I could have seen the expression on John's face when you presented the shorts to him.
This is why I love this blog!

Irregulars rule. I've saved some serious bucks over the years by not worrying about tiny flaws and imperfection.

I love this! I am so thankful that God likes "irregular" too, because that perfectly describes me.

So glad I found your link at Tuesdays Unwrapped.

Irregular makes for interesting.
I think that's why I like Dr. Suess...

Oh Laura, the statement that I am irregular, an understatement!! Seems to be quite a few of us out there, I am thinking it's pretty special now!

Beth in NC said...

Ha, cute post. Aren't we all irregular? :o) It seems I usually need an irregular size (some in between 1/2 size or something). I'm glad the tree didn't fall on your house.

Love,
Beth
