I'm Disguising Myself with Greatness

Ellie said this to me today while she pedaled her bike beside me on my walk to the mailbox.

I have no idea why she said it. It wasn't in the context of anything at all. She just spouted it out like a one-liner and continued on her merry way.


So there's your free quote for the day. Use it wisely.

That is hysterical! I wonder what is going on in that little brain of hers....

someday...a long time in the future...when Ellie is a Ph.D in psychology...we will have the answer.

She is a bold experimentor with words and meanings of words and a section of her brain is labeled "steel trap"...plus she tells it like it is!

Hasn't she just stated the one universal, life-long goal of every human being...to be significant? We put on airs and affectations, claw and dig our way to the top of the heap only to be stepped on by the next guy...and then we step higher and harder...or we become victims thereby proclaiming, "It's not my fault! She stepped on me and you don't care! Look at me! Look at me! I'm over here! Tell me I'm special...tell me I'm different! TELL ME I'M GREAT!"

"Yertle? Is that you?"
