Water Cooler Talk 12-31-14

Weekly random thoughts. Since I’m self-employed it’s my version of water cooler talk: no one to talk to so it goes out to cyberspace. 

Is it gonna be as much fun to party in 2999 as it was in 1999?

Why is it called social media when it’s really the definition of anti-social?

I wonder how many people are already resolved to a really big hangover?

While visiting my parents for the Holidays I found a brussel sprout I hid when I was six…it tastes the same.

Did baby dinosaurs need water wings when they first learned to swim?

I’ll bet there’s at least one Keebler elf that has wanted to experiment with light puffed pastries.

I’ve never broken a single bone on a stick or stone, and neither have any of my friends or relatives. Names though, ouch.

Do skeletons think they’re fat?

My fortune cookie said I would eat a lot of Chinese food this year.

A Conversation Between Angels CXXII

“Good morning everyone. Since you all are new this year, we just want to talk about New Year’s resolutions. We are always growing so there may always be some room that you’d like to improve. Sally?”

“I would like to pray more, I mean consciously pray.”

“Excellent, always good to hear. How about you Pete?”

“I think I’d like to make an effort to ask more about people—their past, their feelings.”

“That is tremendous. And you Freddie?”

“I’m going to try and find stones.”

“Stones? What do you need those for?”

“So I can build a wall to hide behind when I get tired of Pete asking too many questions?”
