Deep Thoughts from the shallow end of the pool.
I came up with that one back in the days when chaos and insecurity reigned, and I had no idea what path this blog was going to take.
Those words have turned out to be perfect for this crazy collection of stories, however.
My goal is to make you laugh and think. While I preach the constant creation and use of Deep Thoughts, the depth of those ponderings doesn’t always need to be such that a lifeguard is required.
Today would be a perfect example of this. Do you know what occupied my Deep Thoughts all day?
It’s been a long week, and my plan for tonight is to relax and watch the Season Finale of Survivor and the last episode of Letterman. I wanted to give that activity a festive atmosphere, so aside from putting on a Party Toga, I wanted something fun to eat.
I’ve been having barbecued chicken and rice all week for dinner, and I’m so over that. So, my Deep Thoughts were about whether I should stop after work and get a side like mac & cheese or mozzarella sticks to liven up the chicken. Perhaps I should scrap the chicken altogether and get Chinese Food.
Maybe what I really needed was chips and dip, or a dessert to make the evening a blast. All these Deep Thoughts were running through my head, but how deep were they really?
The point is, I was exercising my brain and not allowing it to gel or go into hibernation during the hours of the day when I’m not writing.
I explain that not everyone can rock a toga this hard, so it’s okay to put the accent on the “Modern” in Modern Philosopher and wear the trends of the day.
If you want to claim the title of Modern Philosopher, just think. It’s really that simple. Challenge your mind. Exercise your brain. Let the Deep Thoughts run free.
Look at how silly this blog gets at times. I bet every post you’ve ever read on here has made you think, though. Maybe those thoughts were about whether I needed psychiatric help, or who would take over the blog when I finally snapped, but those were all Deep Thoughts nevertheless.
Hopefully, you find some laughter mingled in there with all the thinking.
For the record, I decided to go with pizza to which I’ve added the chicken as an additional topping. I also bought a doughnut with multicolored sprinkles because I’m sure all the colors will inspire some Deep Thoughts on the red to blue to green ratio and about how sprinkles are grown and harvested.
Think about what I’ve written. I’m off to enjoy my dinner and a relaxing night in front of the TV.
Perhaps the Survivor Finale will inspire yet another viral post. Anything’s possible when the Deep Thoughts are always flowing…
