Thought of the Day – It’s Not What You Say… Okay, It’s What You Say!
by Senator Brett
So, anyway… I was listening to that OMD song “If You Leave” and it got to the part in the song where he sings, “I touch you once, I touch you twice, I won’t let go at any price…” and it made me mad as hell because that song was such a hit in the 80’s… and that’s really not fair at all! Why… just a few years ago I wrote a song a lot like that, and it tanked. My lyrics were, “I touch you once, I touch you twice, I won’t let go at any price… hey… why are you calling the cops?! Can’t we just talk a little bit longer?! I miss you! I want you back! What’s the deal with the mace spray?! My eyes hurt!”
At any rate… I guess it just goes to show you that a thought, or sentiment, might make some people think you are sensitive and artistic… while sometimes that exact same thought might make some people consider you a stalker and file a retraining order against you. I guess it is what you say that counts, and of course, how people perceive it.
In a totally unrelated thought… how am I supposed to know exactly how far 500 feet is in relation to another person? I’m not Euclid!
Have a great weekend, folks!
Your Friendly Senator
