Trees versus Shrubs

This last weekend, we went took our kids out to dinner to celebrate the hubbinator’s birthday. It was over food truck tacos, raw fish sandwiches, and craft beer that our oldest told us about trees and shrubs.

Not the kind that you plant in the ground.

These terms refer to people. Trees are folks that like to branch out, to try new things and new experiences.

Shrubs are people that don’t expand far from their comfort zone. They eat the same things, and go to the same places. In other words, creatures of habit.

I think there’s a little of each in everyone. Certainly, when it comes to food, I am a tree. When it comes to looking at things from different points of view, I’m a tree. When it comes to learning, I am a tree.

But there are times when I’m happy to be a shrub. Like when there are lots of people involved or when fish is involved.

So here is to morphing between trees and shrubs.

Until next time.
