Dimestore wisdom

Today, as I waited for my massage therapist to retrieve me from the room of quiet contemplation all spas with any savvy seem to have, I perused a book that claimed to have the answer. Just ask THE question and turn to any random page for THE answer. Hmmm, like an I –Ching for Dummies. And the ancient Greeks were hip to this sort of answer seeking simplicity found in The Iliad this book also suggested.

So I asked my humble little question and turned to the random page of wisdom and got a rather palatable short quote of ancient Chinese persuasion. Kind of fortune kookie logic. Sweeeet. So again I take my chances with fate and again the book produces a reasonably good answer. Actually I believe there are no “bad” choices only consequences but that’s another blog.

Anyhow, I thought about all the other books that folks base their decision making on. Books, theory’s, religions, best friends and so on…. random stuff that happens. So what about the internet. How would that fair. So I Ask Jeeves should I stick it out with my current boyfriend. Low and behold… good advice.

So what about something more random like the NY Times. So I go to the Times web site and visualize the boyfriend question with my eyes closed, and clik, clik, clik …. Bingo I highlight some strange but reasonable advise about staying in a relationship as likened to training wild animals. angst-ridden drama starring the two of us and our poor nervous dog.”
