#316 – The Sock Mop

with 12 comments

Every member of the male species does this. It’s written beneath our skin, a code of sorts. Also, if you listen hard enough you can hear the sound of something being mopped up with a sock somewhere. Fascinating!

Now, I didn’t mean to do this, but I ended up watching four and a half minutes of American Idol last night. Gack! I’m already dry-heaving just thinking about it. But how, Paul, you ask, did such a travesty happen? Well, I was flipping through the channels when I stumbled upon a commercial for the next season of Hell’s Kitchen (one of the few reality shows that I absolutely love). So I stopped to watch it and then as soon as it was over I was being spoon-fed some bullshit about buying songs from iTunes from AI contestants THAT HAVEN’T EVEN WON YET. Seriously, what is that? Thankfully, I stopped having a seizure and was able to hit the power button before any more damage could be done.

Please, someone, anyone, forgive my sins.

And let our legs just run, no concept of distance
And all these rules we’ve learned could make no difference
There’s so much to do or say without repeating
And it’s the subtle laugh that will keep ringing
And what was overlooked could now have meaning
There’s so much to do or say without repeating
So why don’t we?
