Which to Bury, Us or the Bear?

So I heard a story not too long ago, about someone who was being chased by a bear.  Now, if you were in harms way because of a bear, and you had a firearm in your possession, the thing to do…would be to shoot it.  Right?  Well, this person shot the bear…and it died.  And this person…was arrested!  For saving his own life!  Things didn’t turn out the way he thought they would at all!  The bear was supposedly an endangered species.  I’m sure the guy was probably thinking, “Hey!  I was an endangered person!  One of us had to go!”  He obviously didn’t want it to be himself.  “No, I don’t hate you, Mr. Bear, and I don’t wanna fight you…but you took this too far!” Continue reading “Which to Bury, Us or the Bear?”

Rain Glasses

One day, I was driving in my car, when I saw…a most unusual sight.  I saw a lady…riding her bike…in the rain…and she was wearing…goggles.  Now.  These were not swimming goggles.  They were big, clear goggles that covered half her face…the kind of goggles a scientist would wear.  It was as if she was in a chemistry lab.  Except for one thing.  She wasn’t.  So.  It brought me to a bi-polar conclusion.  She may have watched the weather forecast…or at least had witnessed the clouds fighting for control over the sky…and she didn’t want the potential rain to pelt her in the eyes.  So she found some mad-scientist-looking goggles and turned them into…rain glasses.  Continue reading “Rain Glasses”

The Insufficiency of the Descriptive Means of Expression Known as Words

I have an addiction.  To words!  I find myself comfortably in bed.  But then!  A thought comes to me that I must write down.  Or else.  Alas!  I may forget it by morning!  So.  I try not to start writing a story or my thoughts at night.  Or.  I would never get any rest!  Words!  Thoughts!  Spinning!  They come so fast!  Fleeting thoughts.  “Give me a pen!”  The words just keep coming.  “Stop!  I need sleep!”  But no.  The words.  They do not heed my request.  “Slow down, I can’t keep up!”  If I don’t write them down immediately, I find the words have left me, and I don’t know whether to turn right or left to search for them.  So I guess another name for a writer…is a word chaser.

The Lost and Found World of Randomness!

“Randomness!” is on the loose!  I’m not sure where it went!  It seems I have been wandering aimlessly.  If you are new to this Wonderful World of Randomness!…greetings!  And if not…you have probably noticed that it has been YEARS since you’ve heard any of the thoughts swirling around the place my mind resides, known as Wonderland.  How ridiculous this is!  How absurd!  But!  I have had little time and few inspirations.  However, I realize that this is a poor excuse, and seeing as how I claim to be rich in words, I feel as if I have been robbing you of your “Canton Joy!” and laughter.  It’s like I’ve been searching for the lost city of Atlantis (only this is the lost world of “Randomness!”), and I am finally making my way back home.   Continue reading “The Lost and Found World of Randomness!”

Welcome to My World…

Welcome to my world…the Wonderful World of Randomness!  Yes, you there, the person reading the screen; I’m talking to you.  You may be familiar with this name.  It once was an e-magazine, founded by me on March 27, 2008 (yes, I’m weird enough to know the date).  I wanted a way to keep connected with my family; well, really I just needed a formal excuse to fill their inboxes with my random (and sometimes ridiculous) writings.  And now…nine years later to the day…“Randomness!” has made a comeback!  But now we are in blog format for the whole world to read.  I thought to myself, why limit this?  There’s plenty of randomness to go around for everyone!
