It's Like Sacrifixtion

Here is a sampling of the T-shirts, our "in-store" entertainment:

If you understand this......then explain it to me!

This.....well.....I just never knew before, but it explains the Cobra Kai Dojo in "Karate Kid"! :)

Hmmm....the phrase, the smiley face, the command.......nope, I don't get it.

No one told us Michigan changed their colors to two shades of purple!!
And the biggest change of all....
The Chicago White BOX!! In green and navy no less!! :)

Here is another confession for you; Sometimes when I am meeting with one of my tutors he messes up an English word, now I don't necessarily find joy in this per say.....but it reminds me that we all make mistakes when using a new language. For example, one time I asked him to explain what this certain word was and he said, "Well, it is like sacrifixtion, you know." I was like, "Oh, that makes sense. Thanks for clearing that up, really. Because, I know what sacrifice is and I know what cr*cifixtion means but when you put them together it all becomes clearer!" :)

Okay...I didn't really reply that at all....I just said that for a laugh! :) Instead I kept him talking until I could make sense out of what he was trying to say, which I figure is what most people do for me on any given day that I use my new language!
So in the areas of your life, what are some things you should overlook for the sake of kindness? There are certainly things worth standing up for and challenging, but on a daily basis there are many things that we can just let go and extend grace to those around us. Think about it, the truth is you would like them to do it for you! Just a sip from the glass of my life! :)

I love it when they wear english t-shirts without knowing the meaning :) The other day I saw an OLD woman wearing a shirt that said "I love back seats." WHAT?! She had no idea what that means...
I also saw one that said "I'm not as think as you stoned I am." Really? :)
