Normal. I think the collective “we” tend to forget what “normal” really means. At least I have at this time of the year. Statistically speaking, normal means central tendency….part of an expression that provides a “quantitative value” to standard deviation. Huh? Well, in practice, it means about 70% will be part of this so called “normal” group. And what that means is that about 30% will do something different—outside the norm. That’s actually an amazingly large number when I actually think about it.
I wish you could have seen the anticipation of the children waiting for their new clothes, receiving them and the next day strutting around with such great pride as they checked out each others new garb. The eighty children looked well dressed but the great majority of them have never owned anything brand new.
