Yesterday I sneaked away from the office by myself just to read and eat lunch. At a nearby table, two men sat talking…loudly.
Normally I wouldn’t notice conversations around me, but my ears perked up when I heard them both talking about working out at the gym. One was complaining about not losing weight despite regular workouts. The other was chastising him about it and criticizing his eating habits.
Meanwhile, they were both “huskies”. And, they were both consuming massive quantities of food as they sat there. So much so, that the food was competing with their word count. Food versus the spoken word.
I don’t mean to be harsh about these guys because I certainly enjoy a good meal. By the same token, it was hard to listen to one overweight guy lecture the other heavyset man, while they both kept eating massive quantities of food. Isn’t that what they call “the pot calling the kettle black” analogy. As a side note, if you read the Michael Connelly books with the character Harry Bosch, you might also be reminded of the two characters Crate and Barrel. Apropo!
I lead with that story because it reminds me of this blog. I “complained” in Monday’s blog about our difficulties in getting the platform (or some technical term) to correctly post and deliver my blog. That it was keeping me from blog. Meanwhile, here I am again writing this long blog. A bit hypocritical!
So, I defend myself by saying that this is a bit of a flare that we are firing in the air, to see how the blog lands this time after a bit of tweaking. Hopefully, this will all work out and technology will make it better!
Finally, I mention the election. I don’t make this blog political by intent. I am curious to see what’s next. A Trump Presidency should bring lots to blog about!
And to my favorite part… pic o’ day, which is a bit of politics:
