There are funny things everywhere I look. I mean, not in just one meaning of the word, but just about every way a thing can be funny, it seems that there is weirdness and amusement all around.
Some things are just ridiculous to the point of irony, you can’t make them up. Like a fitness club that has all the cardio equipment up on the third floor, and the changing rooms down in the basement. Like, sure, it’s not something you think about until you finish on the bikes and ellipticals and then go to make your way down to get your possessions back.
Or like, the things I’m finding I’ll have to learn before I can go to school. I mean, I think I’m fairly proficient with computers, but some of these forms and sites I need to use for all my applications are crazy complicated to use. And I’m going to have to become pretty wise about computer hardware in order to get a snuff laptop for all the design-ness I will be doing.
It’s in the way an extremely important business contact can shock the hell out of you by sending you an email exclaiming, “SHIT” or “OMG” and then resume like nothing happened.
It is all a joke… but then I don’t need to tell you that The Comedian was poignant and wiser than he seemed. I just need to keep my eyes open for everything he was talking about…
