The cure for restlessness

Get into adventures. Not the adventures you think, 'cause then they wouldn't be adventures. Ask people ridiculous questions. Do a dance you've never done at place you've never been at a time not usual for dancing, or maybe when everyone else is dancing so you can get a room full of applause.

I posed the question: "if you could be reincarnated as any human animal, what would you be?"

This girl looks me dead in the face and blurts, "a blade of grass."

There are of course a few problems with this answer. Most immediately that a blade of grass isn't an animal. Is she serious? The thousand yard stare on her faces relays yes.

So her friend says, "what happens when the lawn mowers come?"

What indeed.
