I skipped the entirety of the school day in order to venture to BoarsHead to see quite possibly the most entertaining play I've ever seen in my 16 years of living. It's called Unneccessary Farce, and I highly reccomend it if you live in Lansing or near any other popular theatre venue where it might be shown. It premiered worldwide here, so perhaps it will spread. Anyway, it's a thought.

It's amazing. Such complex creatures can turn into such simpletons. The wise turn into the hypocrites. Those who display the inability to tame a firey tongue, and even worse: the childish act of comparison.

What a horrible word, comparison is. Annoying is more like it. Horribly annoying. There we go.

It hailed today. Hail has never ceased to amaze me. It only lasts for a few moments because the conditions have to be absolutely precise. It falls at a pace that lies somewhere between that of rain and that of snow, and you barely have time to run and get a pie pan to catch it before it stops. Then, in this particular circumstance, the sun comes back out and casts an eerie yellow glow on the remaining clouds. It's quite the experience, if you look at it through eyes filled with awe. If not, it's just another case of inconvinient Michigan weather.

Case in point: Life is what you make of it.

I like hail. It happens at work and the managers tell you not to open the back door and you do anyway and it rushes in and then they make you close the door. And then you sell to the customers who are half convinced they're gonna get stranded in the mall cause this is South Carolina so they buy a whole lot and your sales numbers would be really great except the lightning knocked your comptuers out. But then they come back up and your numbers are double and the whole time the girl from West Virginia is laughing at you...
