...who wants to be ordinary?

Hi. We live in a society where many like to keep things in boxes, categorizing to make life simple. In polite society rules are made to govern those who need a barometer for behavior. But why be ordinary? I find that life is more interesting the more interesting and out of the ordinary people and places are. On this day in 1958, entertainer Elvis Presley was inducted into the U.S. Army.
I am not saying for a moment that soldiers are ordinary. What I am saying is that when a superstar takes on a position, or joins a group much larger than 'superstars' it makes that person even less ordinary. We all have a place in this Universe and we need to keep remembering that we are unique and special, no matter how we spend our days. If you like stripes, work with stripes. If you prefer solids, go with that. But sometimes it makes things less ordinary when we mix it up a bit.
