I like nonsense. It wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.

–Dr. Seuss


I have to say, doctor, that I completly, head over heels agree. I love this quote so much! Fantasy and nonsense never seem to be so much a part of my life until someone asks what I'm thinking so hard about and I answer something like, "I was trying to imagine what it would be like if gravity pulled at us sideways," or "I was pretending to be [insert character name] and wanted to see what it would feel like to do this for the first time." You get the picture! It all seems very routine to me until I say what it is, and then realize that to whomever I'm speaking with, that seems cray-zay. Get your nonsense on today, yes? Give it a shot!
