I don’t usually read things that are touted to be thought provoking. I know my thoughts will get angry when provoked, and no one wants that.
I am trying to stay focused on my goal. I have a deadline and I have to write four short stories. I have the plot lines and characters lined up, I just have to toss them around in a word stir-fry and get them done.
I’m clearly doing a bang up job of staying focused.
I’m on a bit of a break and glanced at the news.
My first thought was that someone had actual flippers in the house. Like a dolphin or scuba gear and that flipper use found them delight.
No, that wasn’t it. (I think my story would have been better.)
It does kind of give a little insight into how my brain works.
Then AOL’s home page vexed me with an ad disguised as a news story that said, “Surprise him with a new body.” I immediately thought of a new corpse added to the zombie pile in the back yard and Donna Reed saying, Hello Dear, I there’s a surprise for you in the back yard and we are having chocolate pudding for dessert.” (mmm pudding)
And my other source of news, MSN, distracted me with a link with the headline “Skip the Viagra and eat this.” (World’s worst pick-up line.)
I did not click on the link.
I really have to get back to work .
