Topsy-Turvy World

Jeff got off the train at a small town and was surprised to see no one around anywhere. He wondered at the lack of people on the streets. Then to his surprise he saw one man approaching. But approaching in a quite different way than the norm. This man was walking on his hands upside down. He watched for a few minutes and then several other people came from the stores moving toward him in the same way.

Curious, he went into a small restaurant and was greeted with the same sight.Everyone was on their hands. One man reversed his position and asked if he could help him. Just to see how it would be brought to him he ordered a hamburger and drink. When the waitress brought it, sure enough she was upside down with her long hair touching the floor and the food and drink on a tray on her feet. She had on a T shirt and pair of shorts and from what he could tell was a rather nice looking young woman.

He asked her why everyone moved in this way and her answer was that this town was named Topsy-Turvy and they never walked on their feet because when they did, all they could see was the ground below and this was depressing so they decided to learn to walk upside down so they could see the blue sky above and feel uplifted.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could find a way to have the whole world topsy-turvy and never have to look down at the dirt but up at the beautiful skies and clouds?

This is my thought for the day.
