Yes, I've heard there are such people - the same ones who have spotted Elvis in their local Taco Bell.

Which is, of course, absurd. Anyone with ANY brains knows Elvis prefers Burger King.

I think it shows what great care we need to take choosing the words that shape our reality so we don't dash precious parts of ourselves to pieces.

I would agree - which is why those words were so carefully chosen. My hope was to bring focus and attention on the following two lines - that there MUST be more than just "vain ego" - otherwise it's all crushed and worthless.

OMG! Burger King? Not Taco Bell? Really? I mean ... are you sure? I could have sworn it was Taco Bell. \:o He told me go to the Taco Bell and he would give me the new lyrics for "You Ain't Nothin' But a Hound Dog".

Much hijacking (sorry),
