Random gists

Okay, this is not a story.

I was chatting with a friend and I found the chat funny and thought to myself, ‘hey, I could make a blog post out of this’


I have no idea.

Okay, I do. I hate fiction because I lack the imagination to paint a setting or describe a scene vivid enough to make the reader see the sights and sound in his/her mind’s eye. Chatting with this lady (they always have to be a lady!) I found myself doing so effortlessly. It made me smile…and I want to share it.

I hope you like it.


Her: I’m looking for money o

Me: I saw it last in Iberekodo, under one tree like that

Thanks to my special friend for making my evening fun. Life is so much fun with great friends.

Buzz a friend before going to bed today and just check up on them. It is the people around us that make life happy and not our possessions.
