i must say i like these daily brain stretches. i usually do them in the privacy of my corner at the coffee bean. but if i can give them to a few of my daily visitors I’m all for it. sometimes it takes a little spark to start a movement. just something that hits a dry twig and it’s on. i often joke that i’m a fire hazard. brittle and dry. i should use hand cream more often. not sure why i don’t. maybe i will now. if you’ve read this far you are a friend. you made the effort to check in. here’s my brain stretch of the day. believe in what you’re selling. whatever it is. plant your feet and sell it. but don’t sell too hard. the product should speak for itself. i’m currently in the the process of selling jokes at night. i stand onstage and try and connect with strangers. i believe in my jokes. i have put in the effort. sometimes the jokes aren’t purchased. but i do know that if i rewrap them and try again tomorrow there might be a laugh at the end. that’s it. what else? oh yeah. love the room. love the website. that’s what i’m selling today. i’m watering this site. i’m giving it a few words. for the visitor as well as for myself. hearing the fingers click the keys is comforting. i’m even going to add a photo. that means i’m personalizing the post. how will i end this stretch? i have an idea. with a tweet. from yesterday.
just took a parking meter with time on it because it had been so long since i’d found a spot. didn’t even need to stop. just wanted to feel.
see. now we are talking. this brain stretch is now two friends talking. is the tweet relatable? yes. interesting? maybe. do i believe in it? yes i do. welcome to life.
i’ve always had a problem with parking. don’t like paying for it. i’ve had some issues in the past. tickets, etc. one of my biggest fears is a meter that says broken coming to life after i park and me being charged. why? because one time i saw a meter that had a paper bag on the meter that said dead. i checked. i shook it. dead. listened. dead. this meter was broken for sure. i parked. when i came back the bag was on the ground and i had a ticket. on the ticket the parking meter had written “resuscitated.”
This is why if I’m ever charged with a homicide it will involved a parking attendant. have a good day visitor to Kirkfox.com. and thanks. seriously. i really get excited when i see that even one person has stopped by to say hi. i’ll try and have cookies next time.
