Remember several months ago when I tried to introduce some learning in this blog, but then we decided that learning things was stupid and that the only reason we sent kids to school was to get them out of way during “our shows” because they kept saying ridiculous things like “there really isn’t any such thing as a weather-changing machine” or “I don’t think she would survive a brain transplant” Which, would of course ruin the soap opera but we weren't allowed to hit them because of some law. Remember that? Man, those were good days.
Well I’ve been thinking about a couple of things lately…actually I’ve been thinking real hard about about them.
Number 1: What is going on with the Gypsies? How do they justify their less than above board manner of getting money? It’s politically incorrect to discuss it but since the Gypsies aren’t concerned with it (yes I’ve asked) and I’m more envious than judgmental- I feel entitled. I’d love to pick a pocket or two- I'd take a tip from Bill Sykes he can whip what he'd like, I recall he started small he had to pick a pocket or two*. Of course the key of theft for me would be getting away with it because I’m far too good looking to spend time in jail- it’s the hair, I think we’ve discussed this. Remember?
Number 2: As I wander the city looking for gypsy encampments and giving unsolicited advice to people who seem happier than me, I’ve noticed an extraordinary number of pigeons are missing their toes. When I first saw it I thought, “oh those darn gypsies”, but this caper is too big even for them.
So I’ve decided to research both of these topics and write about them. And, as with the first time we tried to get our learn on, when I say “research” I mean “google” and when I say “write” I mean “cut and paste” whatever I find.
P.S. Write when you get work
