Why I Blog


Why is it that I always experience true hilarity with no one around to share it with? Sometimes I feel like I am in the movie, They Live, and only I notice what is going around me. But instead of sunglasses that revile submission signs and skeletoned-alien faced creatures, I just over analyse each and every human exchange and wait for the punchline.

I was grocery shopping the other day and after two cups of tea and a bottle of water I made a detour to the latrine before proceeding to the produce. But before I could get there I passed by a gentleman who was followed by another leaving the said restroom. Here was the exchange between the two:

Man 2-“Sir! Sir?….You forgot your book in the stall.”

Man1- “Oh…thank you.’

Man2-“He dies at the end. Have a good day!”

Man1-“…..”

Okay, there is so much funny here I don’t know where to begin. I mean one, the guy brings his reading material to the grocery store (that’s planning ahead), two he forgets it, three some good samaritan picked it up off the ground (unless the reader has sever prostate issues, I don’t think he was finishing a chapter while peeing. Ew.), four the good samaritan turns out to be a spoiler-dick of a person and of course five, the speechless expression on man1’s face.

See? I never get to share these experiences with anyone. And that, my friends, is why I blog because I will see something like this below, turn to my fellow passenger and it will be gone. Damn it.

  1. Brilliant. That reminds me of the Seinfeld episode with George taking the book into the bookstore’s bathroom. But at least it was that man’s book.

    AND I LOVE THE SPOILER ENDING PART. Did you catch the name of the book?

  2. I saw a man steal potatoes at the grocery store the other day. paid for everything else in his cart, but shoved those little potatoes into his pockets and walked out. No one was there to witness it with me, I understand. šŸ˜‰

  3. I would love it if I was there to hear such hi-larity. This is a great wtf kind of story – one of the finest.

  4. That is so funny! I can’t believe that really happened! This is why I have a Facebook – to tell everyone the stupid stuff that happens to me. But hey, a blog is just as great!! My kid’s preschool teacher told me some stuff about my kid and follwed that up with, “So, I just wanted to give you head.” You know how hard I tried not to laugh? She is Asian, by the way. Stupid American sayings! Merry Christmas!!!

  5. i had a dream last night that you made your annual Christmas sweater and posted a video of yourself making it. i watched the whole video. in my dream. and i even rewound it and watched a couple parts twice. in my DREAM. it was weird. and awesome.

  6. I like your twisted vision. Have you ever gotten into a prolonged street fight with anyone in an effort to get them to put on a pair of sunglasses so that they can share it with you?

Speak to me, Egor.
