I learned a new term this week and now I'm obsessed with it. Semantic satiation.
"Semantic satiation is a psychological phenomenon in which repetition causes a word or phrase to temporarily lose meaning for the listener, who then perceives the speech as repeated meaningless sounds. Extended inspection or analysis (staring at the word or phrase for a lengthy period of time) in place of repetition also produces the same effect."

Also, this post a few years ago really got me!
“At my funeral I want to have 2 Falcons, 2 Braves and 2 Georgia Bulldogs as my pallbearers, so they can let me down one last time.”

@KiraDavis saw your tweet about the foster care / adoption “business”. I will try to come back later and tell you my personal story with the foster care system. It’s a disaster.
