Cozy up and tune out.
“Putting your head in the sand.”
That’s an expression. It refers to ostriches. People say it like it’s a bad thing.
Because surely stuffing your head underground and pretending nothing bad is happening can’t be an effective survival strategy.
Well, guess what?
You know what was known for being fierce and capable and excellent at defending itself against whatever the cruelty of nature might throw at it? A T-Rex.
You know where those are? Extinct.
You know what isn’t extinct? Freaking ostriches.
Evolutionarily speaking, the head in the sand thing works. Sorry, but it’s true. If you don’t like it, take it up with Darwin.
Either way, the takeaway is that sometimes the right solution to life’s challenges is to stick your head in a hole. Or, better yet, stick your head in a soft cocoon of squishy comfort and then cover your eyes and plug your ears.
This is not a good strategy for dealing with everything. It may or may not work in an office meeting. It has a very poor track record against wolves. It’s hit and miss with noisy kids, depending on their persistence and likelihood of wrecking things while you’re voluntarily incapacitated.
But noisy airplane rides with obnoxious seatmates? A road trip where you’re supposed to be navigating but are pretty sure that Siri has it handled? Literally any bus ride ever?
For all of the above, today’s deal is your answer.
So go ahead. The next time you feel like putting your head in the sand…put your head in the sand. We’ll even send you two of everything so that you and a friend can tune out together. Well, separately. Alone, in close proximity.
You get the idea.
