Some company brought us a couple of boxes of oranges as a Christmas gift. They were in the break room when I went back to make a cup of coffee.
This is what oranges are supposed to look like, I said to no one (because no one was there). I bet these oranges even have pits!
I was excited. I had to tell someone.
I peeked around the corner. An innocent woman was quietly working at her desk. I juggled the one orange I had in my hand and said to her, You know, I don’t trust fruit without seeds.
Fruit without seeds. I mean, how are they going to make more fruit. Fruit without seeds? I don’t trust ‘em.
"Now there’s my thought for today," was all she could answer.
And the thought had nothing to do with fruit without seeds. Nothing. The thought of the day has to do with the crazy guy at work and how to avoid him.
I continued talking to her: Do you know what else I don’t trust? Guys without thumbs.
"Do you meet a lot of those?" She asked.
I’ve only met one. I went to shake his hand and my hand slipped all the way to his wrist. I shook his wrist. No thumb to stop my hand. It was off-putting.
If you don’t have a thumb, I think you should warn a guy the first time you shake his hand. It’s only polite.
That’s why I don’t trust guys with no thumbs.
Or seedless fruit.
I’m going to start publishing short form independent content on the web (aka blogging) again. But it’s a discipline. It’s a habit. It’s a commitment.
I want to do it. So I will do it. Right?
I’ve decided to move away from Wordpress as my blogging platform of choice and to Tumblr. Tumblr seems a place for personal blogs these days. So I’m here.
JimFormation is hosted on Tumblr for now. You’re soaking in it.
In preparation for this new day of blogging, I’ve gone and made two other Tumblr blogs:
Okay. That’s enough rambling for now.
tl;dr - I’m going to start writing again. I’m doing it under Tumblr. I have two other blogs: JimFo Reblogs (pretty pictures and quotes) and Madama Jiu-Jitsu, The Unofficial Blog (geeky Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu).
