I've often wondered why my life couldn't be more exciting like a fantasy novel, or even sci-fi.
I feel as if God hears these thoughts as prayers and says, "Exciting?", forgetting the most important part about dragons and vampires and magic and a land of Narnia.
Instead, he complicates my life by allowing me to go through it with a sore throat and sleepless nights. I then think, "You forgot my dragons and vampires and magic and a land of Narnia."
Then I realize God has selective hearing.
