When I was a little girl I had a favorite toy. It was a square multi-colored metal box with a wind-up thingy on its side. Wind the wind-up thingy, again, again, again, a silly song played, and when it was done, the box opened and a clown popped out. I played with that toy for hours at a time. I knew that clown would rear it's silly head, and I always jumped at the surprise of seeing my little clown friend. I have no idea why.
Today I share quotes about surprise. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have enjoyed scouting them.
Until this time next time, be well, stay safe, keep cute.
See you in print,
