When Soliciting Ideas Doesn’t Go As Planned

As of last week, I had run out of all the topics I had decided to write about.

A responsible person would have brainstormed some topics a couple of weeks ago.

I did not.

I knew panic would set in any minute, after all, there is nothing more I would hate than watch TBST stay out of action.

Here’s the flaw in this plan. I don’t really panic.

Any self-respecting bum in this world who has a reputation to maintain knows they must absolutely abide by 2 things-
  1. Not give a shit about anything.
  2. Be extra ordinarily useless.
So, I was desperately scrambling for a topic 3 days before the post was due

when I clearly know It takes about 3-4 days to produce a post.

This is the least conducive situation for the process of creating new ideas.

So I approached a friend to give me some ideas. A high honor, indeed.

Look at the list! Look! It's empty!
expecting an answer from friend
I need you to help me brainstorm topics

The betrayal you feel when the one person you are counting on doesn’t rise to the occasion.

I didn't buy food for you so you could be useless

Fine, then.

Worry about me, womanAnd you finally convince them.
Just start with any word that comes to mind
brainstorming ideas with friend
Brainstorming more ideas
See? That wasn't so hard was it?
Your ideas kinda suck
There are some moments in life when you have to keep your damn mouth sealed.
This was one of those moments.
Come here you little shit. Let me fix that smug face for you.
There are also some moments in life when you are supposed to haul ass.
This was one of those.
Come back here you ungrateful weasel

Notes: Weep for me if I die?

I still don’t have as many ideas as I would like. Ideally, I would like to have at least two posts created and scheduled and not be winging it. Yet, so far I’ve been winging it.

I send fun emails once a week or maybe even less

    I can’t believe you guys are actually requesting a post about Pandas!

  • The Black Sheep Theorem

    More Panda requests. You guys really love Pandas.

  • Ha! This is way too relatable for me. I feel like I turn to The Mr far too often to ask him if I’ve done anything weird this week.

    Well at least someone should be taking notes for us. Writing a post is no funny business.
