When a guy like me thinks , it never goes away. I think about what I’m currently thinking about , what I need to think on later , and often I have mid thought interruptions by some unexpected circumstances. It’s the short ones that interrupt my present thoughts that end up being the ones that stay with me. For example many years ago I was thinking about something to do with my job and I noticed that every single time I get a hamburger through a drive-thru and I’m starving I get all the green lights and that has never left me..
Now I’m not talking about the traditional curious phrases like why do they call it a parkway when we drive in it – why it’s a driveway when we park on it. And not why do they call them. stands when you sit in them or things like that.
I mean the real cerebral stuff. The things that make you wonder if you’ve got a secret part of your brain that is actually super smart despite what you think about the rest of your brain.
This afternoon for example two thoughts came to me that have not left. One thought was an unusual picture in my mind of rich men who have all kinds of women around them because they have money and they still enjoy it. They still feel like there’s something special about them. They don’t understand that as soon as that money is gone the women are gone. I wonder do they not know that or do they not care. Don’t ask me why that’s been a big thought it’s just something that came to me today.
The other issue that popped into my mind was as I was reading other blogs and noticing how many followers and how many likes people have- I was immediately drawn to calculate in my head if I was to pay somebody to get 20 times the following I have right now and therefore 20 times the likes, would it make me feel any better. And if it did make me feel better why?
There was a part 2 to the blog and question and I don’t mean to offend anybody so I’m not going to be specific because it’s not meant to offend. But when you see it overly simple titles like how to get a Cadillac before breakfast- or how to have a million dollars before your next birthday- or how to have zero worries in 30 minutes by doing these three things . ..
I see the most simple titles which are totally unrealistic even if you were high and yet I’ll see three- four- five hundred likes! Of course that brings in an “interrupted thought” – immediately.. do the people who are reading it really believe it ? Or are the people who write it hoping that because they pumped their numbers up so high, a certain percentage of readers will just assume it’s true ? But after that thought I have these two thoughts if somebody did buy into it but they didn’t get their Cadillac by 8 a.m. why do they keep on liking the next 25 posts? But the real big question on that is this – If somebody did believe that the person writing that could accomplish these supernatural events and even convince themselves that they’ve seen the evidence- isn’t there a point where something clicks in their brain -and they say “wait a minute if they were doing all this- what are they doing sitting on a WordPress blog all day? And then my guy/money /girl question which was from this afternoon got intertwined and I asked myself wouldn’t they think he would be the guy with all the women by now around the jacuzzi , not blogging ?
Darn it see that right there brought up in archives an “interrupted thought ” from many years ago of a man driving a beat-up old Pinto with a bumper sticker that said “ask me how to make a thousand bucks a week!”
Ok. I’m stopping .
And before I check out -I realize they might be some haters who are going to say or think “he‘s jealous he‘s just jealous….
And to that I say, SO WHAT! You mind yours and I’ll mind mine ok? If it bothers you that much- make my jealousy disappear in 30 minutes..
Wow…. that was very therapeutic for me…thank you , thank you and more thanks..I’m getting choked up about this , you all are like family .
You know I listen to people’s thoughts all day- and every once in a while I just need to vent, and express my thoughts . So I appreciate you letting me do that today.
