Last week as I was wandering thorough Target, a dangerous thing to do as the more I wander the more things jump into my cart, I had a thought....
I am really glad people can't read minds.
When asked if you could have a super power, some wish for strength, some wish for speed, some wish to read minds.
Now, I will admit there have definitely been many times where I wish I could know what someone is thinking or know if my kids are hiding something from me.
Sometimes I think I wish I could know what someone really thinks about it me.... but then wait a minute, I don't think I really want to know.
"She's really wearing that today?" "Oh her kids are probably going to cause trouble" "Wow, did she even run a brush though her hair"
Those little thoughts, those little things that people might quickly think but then often even dismiss in their own minds, if I heard them I think it would be paralyzing, make it impossible to make any decision, do anything without worrying and second guessing.
Plus if I had the ability to read minds, that would mean there was a good chance someone else had that same ability, then last week as I wandered through Target they would have heard this
"Man my underwear is riding up something horrible, I really need to pick it out!"
And really, no one wants to hear that.
Would you want to read someone's mind?
