What started out as an experiment–me blogging random musings on life at the urging of family, friends, and others–has turned out to be fun. The posts are short, and they take me just a few minutes each to crank out. The bigger challenge is choosing the best topics for the posts. Sure, there is plenty of fodder out there to last a lifetime, but the best raw material comes from readers. Just ask Scott Adams, the comic strip writer behind Dilbert, a strip that pokes fun at the business world. His readers have kept him going everyday for years. I am looking for topics that inspire us to think about the strange, ridiculous, wacky, frustrating, humorous, or wondrous aspects of everyday life. Whereas rubbing shoulders with a celebrity might be considered a brush with fame, consider this your opportunity to have a brush with obscurity–some guy who nobody knows and probably never will. In exchange for your contributions, I will give you a SHOUT OUT when I use the topic you submit so that everybody reading this blog will know you (first name and city/state only). Please provide your city/state with your submissions, and thanks in advance!
