Someone once told me I was a very complicated person, Modern Philosophers.
I know that sounds like an awesome compliment, but she meant it in a hurtful way. Her words confused me more than they offended me, however, because I think I’m a pretty simple guy.
Sure, I have complexities that might frighten away the kind of person who runs from a good challenge, but overall, I’m simple.
You can sit me in front of a really great television show, and I’d be perfectly content. Right now, I’m bingeing Castle from the very beginning. Love it. Great writing. Well developed characters. Fun chemistry between the leads. And Detective Beckett is quite easy on the eyes.
I’d also be just as happy watching the Yankees game. Or give me a good book and a comfy chair. Better yet, a promising idea and access to my laptop is all I need to pass the day.
And some Snapple. Don’t forget my beverage of choice.
Not at all complicated.
I don’t know what she was talking about!
I wasn’t having the best day, so I took a moment to stop and consider that. What would it take to improve my mood? How could I prevent falling any further down a rabbit hole of stress?
I thought about how cool it would be if we could just order out a bunch of pizzas. Because, as any Modern Philosopher worth his toga will tell you, food can solve most problems.
And since I’m forever evolving as a Modern Philosopher, I took my problem solving to a higher level because pizza is a very obvious solution to the puzzle.
I wanted to bush the boundaries and open up my mind (and stomach) to an entirely new option.
I settled on Chinese food.
General Tso’s Chicken is going to make it all better.
It’s that simple.
It will be General Tso’s Chicken, fried rice, and an egg roll. Plus, I’m going to bring some Snapple from my stash at home.
That will be my lunch tomorrow.
Knowing that Chinese food is on the horizon has already exponentially brightened my outlook on life.
Because I’m a simple guy, who knows how to solve a problem.
I’m really not at all complicated. Trust me on this while you’re passing the soy sauce…
Do you think you’re a complicated person? If someone told you that you were would you be offended? What’s your go to Chinese food order?
