Saturday Evening Post

The issues that matter the most are often the ones that are most avoided as topics of conversation. I have often wonder why this is, and I began to think about it. I decided to share what I thought with you to see if any of you agree.

I have started to think that the reason some topics are avoided is that they are to painful to discuss, or the one attempting to get you to talk about them makes you uncomfortable. We all have that one friend that is always to busy talking to listen; they interrupt at two words and begin giving advice that shows they do not have a clue what is going on in the world around them.

There is that friend that gives advice based on something they did a century ago without ever realizing that things might have changed since then. They do not realize that some of the things they tell you would actual cause you to commit fraud if you followed the advice they were giving. Then they tell you things that are actually their confessions to fraud after the fact.

Avoiding the issue is done with those that cannot listen because they lack the deductive reasoning to know that they do not need to repeat things. It is because they do not pay attention to cues during the conversation; they might not know what privacy is, and they are most likely to say something offensive because they do not listen.

Why do you avoid the issues? Until next time I'll keep pondering about life and those in it.

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
