Thought for the Week
I normally write something meaningful on Mondays, some bit of wisdom to help you get through the week.
Today you can call me “Dr. Awkward” because today all my thoughts are, well, a bit off somehow. Here are some examples:
- Chocolate has been proven to be an aphrodisiac. But the effect is only measurable after consuming roughly 400 lbs. of chocolate. And who’s going to want you then?
- Do kids at Zen summer camps sing, “If you’re happy and you know it, clap one hand?”
- Our potted plants hate us. It takes them days to turn toward the sun. And then we come along and turn them the other way, so they’ll look “balanced.”
- Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is a classic comedy. Gunfight at the O.K. Corral is a classic western. So, Fear and Loathing at the O.K. Corral would be, like, the greatest movie ever, right? Speaking of which, why is it just “the O.K. Corral?” Was the “Really Good Corral” already booked? (“You fellas ain’t gonna shoot-up my best corral! Now go on, git! You can use the O.K. corral over there if you want.”)
- Time-Saving Tip for Guys: “Pee in the shower!”
- Do geese see God? is a palindrome. That means it says the same thing in reverse. Which is pretty cosmic. If you’re a goose. Speaking of which, why isn’t the word for things that are the same in reverse a palindrome? I mean, “emordnilap?” I’m just not feeling it. Maybe we should call it a “Dr. Awkward.” I mean that’s a palindrome, and I’m O.K. with giving up the title, in fact, I’m Really Good with it. See what I did there?
I told you I was off today.
