Two simple words. Together, they are defined in the dictionary as:
1. sound practical judgment that is independent of specialized knowledge, training, or the like; normal native intelligence.
Or, as stated in the British dictionary:
1. plain ordinary good judgment; sound practical sense
Sometime, in the not-so-distant past, these two words were tossed out the window and replaced with an alarming inability to think and produce good judgment. Take note of the descriptive terminology used in defining 'common sense':
The next line should read: Free to All Who Apply!
Except, not everyone applies and certainly not all are qualified.
The idea for this blog has been bouncing around in my head for a couple of years and I have decided that it is time. Perhaps it's the craziness of this year's election, the ridiculous headlines that we read (every. single. day), or maybe it's simply the need to diminish my stacks of scribbled-down 'common sense' pet peeves that have piled up around me over time. Whatever the reason, it has begun.
It seems to me that this ol' world has gone a little crazy and lacks in many things. We can surely regain some order with even the smallest amount of common sense. Well, that and a huge amount of prayers!
So, if it be your wish, please sit back and join me on this journey. Hopefully, you will see humor in some of my thoughts and we can share a few laughs. I'm sure there will be times that you absolutely do not agree with a single word I type. But, who knows? It's possible there may even be a few tears along the way.
