I am still slogging through a couple of non-fiction books, and just took a break from that to read a bit of the Nick Adams stories by Ernest Hemingway.
Just chillin’ out after a long day at work.
In this lull of a moment, while getting another coffee, three horrendously deep philosophically challenging scenarios have sprung unbidden into my mind, and I pose them to you…
You are wandering around in a blind fog and you are starving to death. Literally, you could almost die. Then the fog lifts, to reveal the following three equi-distant buildings. To which of these would you mostly likely drag yourself?
b) Pizza Hut.
c) Kentucky Fried Chicken.
d) None. I would keep starving.
You have been awarded your choice of the following all-expenses paid vacations/excursions. Which do you choose?
a) $4,000 shopping-spree in San Francisco.
b) A week-long archaeological tour of the Great Pyramids in Egypt.
c) A journey into outer space [and return] on the Space Shuttle.
d) I don’t like adventure. I will stay at the local Starbucks.
While waiting in the airport for your plane to begin boarding, an announcement comes over the PA system. There is going to be a 2… no, 3-hour delay. Given that you have no schedule to meet regarding your destination, which of these things are you most likely to do?
a) Kill yourself or someone else. In other words, be extremely angry.
b) Immediately look for somewhere to shop, within the terminal.
c) Seek out the nearest bar, and get sloshed.
d) Relax, and sink further into the book you were already reading anyway.
Think about these things, and respond in the comments, if you like.
