Keeping life interesting and surprising becomes more difficult the older you get. Many people try to force their lives into being more interesting. They can accomplish this by learning a musical instrument, going skydiving, or buying their dream cars. There are thousands of ways to add some excitement to a dull and monotonous life.
However, most people have discovered the most astonishing events transpire when you least expect them. If you're not paying attention, those incredibly unique opportunities will simply pass you by. This means you should keep your head up and your eyes opened. Be prepared for the once-in-a-lifetime moments that keep this life interesting.
The following people were going about their lives when they noticed the most unexpected things in the least likely of places.
1. A Teaspoon Of...
The banana bread recipe calls for a teaspoon of baking soda, not a teaspoon itself. You have to read the recipe in its entirety if you want it done right.
2. Where Did I Leave My Skates?
When grandpa was a young boy he hung his skates on the tree. He didn't return until decades later and found them waiting for him.
3. Ready For Anything
That moment you realize your child has been secretly planning for the apocalypse. Either that or he's getting ready for a life of organized crime.
4. Discovering Your Past Self
Have you ever walked into a museum only to realize your doppelganger has already lived his life? He must have done well for himself to become a painting.
5. Produce Toys
We're fairly certain no grocery store employee put this sign up. Pretty sure that kind of lurid suggestion wouldn't fly with the manager.
6. When Your Chips Are Down
When you share a bag of chips with a friend and then realize the bag only came with one giant chip. It's better than purchasing a bag of air.
7. Amphibian Big Trouble
A customer discovered that her favorite salad company harvests their lettuce next to a pond. The ingredients on the side of the bag said nothing about pollywogs.
Maybe this is what the previous produce battery picture was about. We knew potatoes produce energy, but we are just now learning about the carrots.
