Weâ€™ve come quite far you and I.
I donâ€™t know you well enough to speak from your point of view
so Iâ€™ll stick to mine.
As I look back I canâ€™t help but think, what do I have to show for the year gone byâ€¦the radio promotion wherein listenerâ€™s were invited to find a road with no potholes? Strakaâ€™s ability to maintain her weightâ€¦and still be shown full frame on telly? Nope.
This one time my cousin had gone to buy a DVD writer/burner. Iâ€™d told him he could get one for 90k, and he took this knowledge with him to the shop. The sales guy there on the other hand had other plans and insisted that there was no way in heck that a product of such capabilities could go for such a price. So he quoted 160k. My cousin called me up and we went to another shop (next door actually) and we got a flippinâ€™ writer for 90k. When we went back and berated the dude at the other shop, he took it, looked it over and as he handed it back he goes like, â€œgood priceâ€. Iâ€™m lookin at this dude and thinkinâ€™ â€œWhat the heck man?â€ Good price? Thatâ€™s your line of defense. Put up a fightâ€¦accuse us of spinning a yarn. Donâ€™t GOOD PRICE us. Surely youâ€™ve got a little more creativity up thereâ€¦no? Shit, fine, Iâ€™ll let that goâ€¦
Some other time I was listening to the radio, coz itâ€™s like, the sort of thing you do while at work. Anywho, these guys are discussing parental love and the bonds they share with their offspring. (in some far off country the presenters are going into serious issues that require listeners to call in and make like goat noisesâ€¦ more on that in a bit) Anywho, so this dude calls in and remarks, â€œMotherâ€™s make good loversâ€¦â€ albeit unannounced Iâ€™m sure there were several accidents that occurred right about thenâ€¦so a presenter inquires (his major contribution to radio thus far) â€œeh, you man, what are talking about?â€â€¦and the dude replies, â€œMotherâ€™s can love their kids a lotâ€¦â€No shit?!
Radio is a tricky biz, I suppose. It canâ€™t be easy to come up with a promo that will get people talkingâ€¦or making animal sounds. So there was this promo running where a person had to call in and make that sound goats makeâ€¦when they are like totally conversating and all. That there was kinda lame, even if it meant you got to take the damn thing home for the night Christmas. How do you explain that stuff back home?
– Honey! Kids! I got us a goat.
– Thatâ€™s wonderful dad, how did you pull it off?
– I reached into my soul, found my inner herbivore and got my goat onâ€¦
Taxi fares shot upâ€¦actually lots of stuff shot up and for the most part it was explained by falling water levels. It was a bad period for brothelsâ€¦
-It is usually _______ but because I canâ€™t afford to bathe after that, I have added ______ for bottles of mineral water.
Come to think of it, the crisis made it that much harder to hit on chics in bars and stuff seeing as you couldnâ€™t afford to wine them, dine them and take them home.
It was the year of blogger sightings. And because it was getting out of hand I will not dwell on itâ€¦
Ernest released his book, thereby ensuring that we have some Saggy reliefâ€¦just one thing though, MORE PAGES man! Or keep Saggy away from societyâ€¦
Iâ€™m hungry, Iâ€™ll get back to yâ€™all later.
