“So What Do You Do Each Day?”

me, clearing throat, and not wanting to talk about the half hour I just spent watching funny stuff on Reddit.

‘I write stuff.’

“What kinda stuff?’ – imaginary person asks me.

‘Mostly brain farts, funny stuff, or how big of an idiot I can be at times.”

“And people read that stuff?” 

‘Some say they do…’

“OK…and the stupid stuff? What do you mean by that?”

‘Well there was that time I was almost pushed off a cliff by some crazy dude, or the time I woke up in a rolled up
carpet outside the back of my house….or then there was the time I got hit in the arse with a firework….’

Me pausing, as imaginary stranger cocks his head to the side, looking like a confused spaniel.

‘You’re an idiot.’

“That’s a bit hurtful….especially from an imaginary guy like you……”

‘And people follow you?’ Next you’ll tell me that they pay you for your stuff?

“Well it does hap….”

‘Wow….if you can make money online than anyone can.’

“Well….”

‘The next thing you’ll tell me….is that you’re giving folks access to all your products for one monthly
price.’

Me, looking at imaginary stranger, wondering how he’s just read my mind like that.

‘You are…aren’t you? You’re a bigger idiot than I thought you were.’

“Well I…”

‘I swear….if you can make money online, than anyone can.’ He looks around. ‘I’m outta here.’

“OK.”

‘How the hell do I get out of this blog post thing?’

‘Well you could click on the link here to see what I do….or just scroll down to the unsubscribe button ….have a good day!’

“Yeah, whatever! I’m off to buy a squillion dollar course from someone that actually knows what they’re talking about.”

‘Hey! Mind that step! It’s a long way dow…..’
