#WednesdayWisdom: Better Late

Standard

So I ran around doing errands today, and it was less fun than I expected. It’s stressful to try to maintain distance, especially when other people aren’t considerate. People who don’t take turns.

One guy reached right next to me in the meat case, and I had to tell him he was too close. He looked surprised. He didn’t apologize.

It’s a strange world where our well-being can depend upon people who really don’t care. Whose thought at making someone ill would be a mere shrug. Who think the rules somehow do not apply to them.

Who’d have thought the apocalypse would be so fun?

And so while I thought it would be good to be out for a while, it turns out I just couldn’t wait to get home, where I’ve been for weeks now. And yet, with the internet, it doesn’t feel so limited.

Anyway, I hope you’re doing well and taking care of yourself. Have a fantastic Wednesday, however much Wednesday you have left.

Robot Butler EXPOSED

I keep thinking how great life would be if I had a robot butler to take care of things, like making me food when I don’t feel like it, and tidying up. And then I considered what it would probably be like.

“Uh hi, Robot Butler, I’d like some dinner please”

“Certainly. What would you like?”

“I dunno.”

“Is there a kind of cuisine you’d prefer?”

“Eh.”

“You have no preference?”

“Nope. Could you like analyze my taste desires or something?”

“’Taste desires?’”

“To figure out what I’d want to eat.”

“Certainly. Please hold out your tongue.”

“Aren’t you going to wash your grabby claw things first?”

“My hands?”

“Yeah. Whatever you call them.”

“They auto-sterilize. Your tongue.”

“Ooophlay, aaahhh yyooou eetttin anyfffiin?”

“Hmm. Just a moment longer.”

“Whaaassss it faaayinn? Aahhfo yyouuhh caawww paaaspfff weeeirrrb.”

“Hand. It’s my hand. They don’t really auto-sterilize and I just took out the garbage.”

“I knew it! And ew.”

“And it’s saying you’re a grown adult woman who should be able to decide what she wants to eat.”

“So you can’t analyze my taste desires?”

“What do you think I am, the HomeBot9600?! You bought the basic model.”

“Sorry Robot Butler.”

“I’m making you pasta.”

“I don’t want past—“

Silence.

“Pasta will be fine.”

And scene.
