Did everyone have as bitter of a weekend as I did? I mean seriously, we got the same NBA Finals as we have the last four years? The weather was fairly lackluster and haven’t blogged since last Friday, so it seems like it has been an eternity since I’ve written a terrible blog post. Though it seems like I’ve gotten a lot of comments since then. Seems like something weird is going on.
Anyways, does it ever feel like Groundhog’s Day to you? Like every day is almost always the same? It feels like someone is just pulling the strings on you? The same drive in, the same drive home, the same thing for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Same things said in the meetings? I’ve been in some Groundhog’s Day situations a lot.
It makes me wonder about singers. I’ve heard or read interviews about them, where the talk about going on tour. They go to a new town, they sing 3 or 4 hours, put on a performance, get on a bus, go to the new town, sing the same songs.
It’s pretty rare to find a new song that you like so much that you put it on perpetual repeat, but recently I did that at work. The weird thing is that during one of the repeat marathons, I had to take off my headphones, and got interrupted for quite a while. I forgot to hit pause, and then I came back about an hour later.
At that moment, even though this is completey irrational, I imagined that singer having to sing the song against their will on repeat and their throat getting parched, wanting so badly for me to move on to the next song, being completely uncomfortablely forced into singing the song over and over for eternity.
Since, I felt a little bad I moved on to another song. But then I wondered if maybe someone bigger than us in the universe is doing the same thing to us. Some alien race that loves our routine so much, that they put it on repeat, and leaving their cosmic desk, and not realizing they left us on repeat for a whole week. Then the finally realize it, and move on to the next earthling routine and we finally get to have a long weekend, where we get one extra day to screw up our lives.
