What do you take for granted?

Every day, I come home from work, flip the light switch on and the light comes on. I might get a drink of water and cold water comes out of the tap. I grab the remote, hit the power button and the news starts blaring out of the TV. I never give any of these things a second thought.

Until they are not there. Then they give me an incredible rush of frustration.

What do you take for granted each day? Is it things, people, places, services? Or something a lot smaller? OR bigger? And that brings us to our next Lets Blog Off.

I don’t know what happened to the automatic upgrades when people post on the blog off subject. I ended up going through an old list to see what others had written! I did blog on the subject and just ASSUMED it would show up on the list, which is a wonderful bit of irony when you think about it. We take something for granted… and the damned thing stops working!

Classic. Maybe it’s intentional. :)

It was a piece of performance art. We call it Irony :-)
