…what d’yeez think about thinking?… my pal, Dave Peck has a few thoughts on it…

…this just in  from my pal, Dave Peck… too good to miss… enjoy…



I started out innocently enough. I began to think at parties now and then to loosen up. Inevitably though, one thing led to another and soon I was more than a social thinker. I began to think when I was alone, to relax! At least, that’s what I told myself, but I knew it wasn’t true. Thinking became more and more important to me. I was starting to think all the time. I even began to think at work. I knew that thinking at work was frowned upon, but I couldn’t help myself. I began to avoid friends at lunch, so I could think even more. I would return to work dizzied and confused, asking “What is it we’re trying to do here?”

Things were not any better at home. One evening, I turned the T.V. off and asked the wife what she thought about something. She spent the night at her mother’s. Soon, I had the reputation of being a heavy thinker. One day, my boss called me into his office. he said he liked my work, but my thinking had become a problem. It was affecting my co-workers. He said I should be like very one else and stop thinking. This gave me a lot to think about. I told my wife what my boss said. She told me she wanted a divorce. She said I was thinking as much as a college professor, and everyone knows how little they get paid. She said that if I didn’t stop thinking, we would be destitute. “That is a faulty syllogism,” I thought as she began to cry.

I stopped thinking at work and my boss is much happier. The wife appreciates me more while I am at home. Life is a lot easier when you stop thinking…think about it!


…thanks for this, that man, Dave… so what d’yeez think, Lads and Lassies of Blog Land?… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!

  1. Let me quote Robbie Williams: “I’m contemplating, thinkin’ about thinkin’
    It’s overrated, just get another drink in”

    We can’t stop our mind of thinking… well but it’s not the same to think about normal things and other is ” to rack one’s brains” (in Spain we say comerse el coco), then our family and friends get fed up with us!!!!! Life is short… enjoy it!!!! don’t think!!!!!

  5. Even when you think you’re giving your brain a rest, you are thinking. That little machine never stops.
    Love this. Entertaining hilarity. (Can I say that or will it cause someone to think too much?) 😀
