Water Cooler Talk 1-28-15

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. 

I wonder if daffodils appreciate all of their syllables?

If time stood still would all the clocks feel awkward?
Do ties feel as constricted as the necks they encircle?
I found a Crackerjack prize in a shoebox and I’m stuck in limbo between anticipation and disappointment.
My therapist said I should talk to my inner child and give him unconditional love—he just wanted a cookie.
I know people don’t really really admire cows but isn’t calling it Beef Jerky just bullying?
If you made a car with donuts as wheels, when it got a flat tire you’d have to eat it; it couldn’t be repaired.
I wore footie pajamas to the shoe store so I wouldn’t have to waste their disposables and they looked at me so funny. People just don’t care about the environment.


A Conversation Between Angels CXXVI

“Well look who we have here.”


“Yeah. And you didn’t get a chance to pay me that twenty large you owed me before I left the earthly plane.”

“But I don’t have any money…I…I…”

“Relax, I’m just messing with you.”


“Yeah this here is all about love not money.”


“And I would love a turkey sandwich and you are gonna get it for me.”

Dumb Phone


It occurred to me the other day that we have become a culture obsessed with smart phones, and those numbers are only going to go higher. But what’s the opposite, the antithesis, what’s a dumb phone?

A smart phone is one that incorporates functions like email and web browsing, apps that can allow reading, gaming, news & weather and multiple other functions that we’re yet to discover. And oh yeah, you can make a phone call.

So then the exact opposite would be one of those phones that mainly makes calls. Just the flip phone style, simple, a device that is not much bigger than a business card yet it CONNECTS YOU WIRELESSLY WITH PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD!!

Are we getting smarter, or just needier, lazier and more in need of distraction so we don’t have to pay attention to people?
