I pressed the button on the random subject generator and this was what came up – “What does getting old mean to you?”
It wasn’t what I was hoping for. I could have come up with that on my own. I had honestly meant to write on any subject that came up, but as many of my posts are already on that subject I thought I’d try again.
So I tried again.
“Write about your feet.”
I am very tempted, but it would include thoughts about arthritis and about getting old so, again, it’s nothing new.
One last try.
“Write your obituary.”
You know, I sometimes wonder if the world really does hate me. I have recently had to help with my father’s obituary and I could have done without a reminder. It was bad enough this morning when someone came into the shop to buy a Father’s Day present. I’ll be cheerful again tomorrow, but for tonight I’ll pass.
So, one last try.
“What has made you angry recently?”
That’s easy, the random subject generator has been winding me up for the last half hour. I could, given another hair’s breadth of provocation, really let rip on the subject of random subject generators. It’s not much of a thing to get worked up about but it will do for the moment.
There other things to get worked up about but I’ll leave you with a quote.
“Mashonaland is ours, we conquered it, and have every right to be here…”
This could so easily be a quote from Cecil Rhodes, but it’s actually a quote from Umgandan, a Matabele induna.
Whatever today’s revisionists may think, not all the invaders in Africa were white.
