A brief introduction: For awhile now, I’ve kept an ever-growing list of things thought up by my friends and I in my phone. These are usually pretty dumb things, hence the name of the file I keep these thoughts in, “Dumb Things.” A lot of times, these dumb things turn into drawings like Spooky and Meatballs or Trimester Stallone, which is fun. Sometimes they turn into tweets, which I think sells them short. Then I remembered I have a blog. I can blather all I want about these dumb things and maybe we’ll even get somewhere intelligent if I do. Maybe. This new category of blog posts will be called, of course, Dumb Things.
Today’s dumb thing (make sure you read it slowly and pause at each comma):
The man, on the plaque, he gives me my pills
Originally said by Laura Miner, it caused me so much confusion that I couldn’t help but laugh. My first thoughts: Is this a weird drug dealer who advertises using metal engravings? It was said so calmly, has he brainwashed Laura? This is a strange admission. What really happened: We were in CVS, they have their pharmacists listed out on a plaque, and one time Laura picked up a prescription from them. Not so exciting but that sentence, ”The man, on the plaque, he gives me my pills,” is so perfectly creepy.
