I got the message today that I have been chosen for some team of fellow lonely drifters for Wednesday bowling. I have no idea who they are but have been told to show up next Wednesday with three dollars for shoes. Seems a bit steep to rent pre-worn shoes for a couple hours. Someone is living high off these 'shoe profits' in Costa Rica I just know. The 'shoe rental Kingpin' will be exposed. Well, let's see how I bowl first. Keep those scores high and he will have to let me live - until I buy MY OWN bowling shoes. Yeh, you heard me.
I knew a guy in University who was so proud that he was able to steal a pair of shoes from the bowling alley like he had shoplifted Air Jordan's from 'Payless'. He totally planned to wear them out on the weekend until we reminded him why they look the way they do - so that people who steal them get outed in public as bowling shoe thieves. It's harder to steal a Big Mac and fries from a baby (I know, I have done it - now THAT is a terrific 60 second story I have written about before) than a pair of bowling shoes. Not like they have a tag on them that beeps when you go out the door. But can you imagine? The looks you would get? The looks of pity?
So stay tuned for my adventures at the lanes. This will be fun, trust me. I make you laugh sometimes, right? That is until you leave me with the harsh slap in the testicles that is the UNFOLLOW. Yeh, I know, what you will say but you all know it takes me about a week to recover from the pain.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
