If It Is Not On The Fridge, It Is Not Important
I’ve been trying to find "something good" to put on my fridge, because this phrase alone racks up 223,000,000 Google hits. With more than two hundred million pieces of evidence on hand for something good, as compared to 117,000,000 “something bad” links, odds are in my favor that I can hit pay dirt.

There is absolutely no question that I started out looking for good somethings because I was feeling bad and needed an attractive mental escape hatch. Did you know that every dark tunnel has a few skylights, so that we can stop and recharge before we keep walking towards the light at the end? Without those, every day would feel like a drive through Ohio.
As I get older it seems like the tunnel exit sign is always further away than what I remember, and I wish that I had worn better shoes. Does that ever happen to you?
I still haven’t found anything to tack onto the fridge. Which is a shame because I located a spare magnet under the fridge when I was vacuuming. Next to the dry erase board and photographs of my family, I have a place for something good. Perhaps it will turn up soon.
