The $200 Attack

First of all, there’s no magic in making it two hundred dollars. Any number works.

Just take some cash you’ve laid back, reserved, saved or collected and go to a nearby town (it can be your hometown, but it’s more fun if you’re not recognized.)

Start giving away kindness and money to people at a rapid pace so that before they know it, you are in and out of their community and on your way.

You can divide it up any way you wish.

  • How about $75 in five-dollar bills?
  • $20 in change to put into the washing machines at the local laundromat?
  • Pay for four meals at fast food restaurants.
  • How about some single one-dollar bills to hand out to kids?
  • Or surprise somebody by paying for their gasoline.

Take along your own children.

Give them the experience–and if you want to increase your cash, invite a couple of friends, who bring their stash.

In my opinion, it’s just better if you do it in a town near you—and do it as quickly as possible, leaving behind a community of at least forty or fifty people who are scratching their heads, talking about it for some time to come.

It’s $200 you will never wish you had spent another way.

And it will blow your mind.

Sit Down Comedy … September 4th, 2020

Sit Down Comedy

A whisper.

What is the whisper?

Is it a begrudging apology offered in plaintive solitude?

Is it breathless uncertainty?

Is it suppressed by intimidation, hoping it no longer can be heard?

Why do we whisper?

Is it intimacy?

Perhaps the words can be uttered without actually being recognized.

Is it gentleness?

Is it the timbre of a coward?

When do we whisper? Usually when we’re close.

Do we whisper when we’re apart?

Do we sometimes speak, hushed, knowing that no one will hear, but still enabling ourselves to complain because they didn’t?

Do other creatures whisper?

Is there room in the natural order for the whisper to prosper?

Can I whisper and be confident; whisper and realize I may not be comprehended?

Is my whisper an objection to the brash cacophony that surrounds me every day?

Or am I just so uncertain of my own meaning that I’d rather remain unknowable?

How do we whisper?

Is it the best way to communicate to a single ear?

How close do the lips have to get to that one ear, often causing a tingling throughout the whole body?

Do great men whisper?

Do lions whisper? Or do they leave that to the meager mouse?

Yes, is whispering mousy?

Is it a way to escape confrontation?

Or is it a pious practice, conveying a holy calm?

Do I whisper?

And when I do, is it a choice of empowerment or a trembling of disbelief?

There is so much overpowering in the world that sometimes a whisper can receive unmerited appreciation.

For what good is there to speak something important if it is so quiet that it can’t be perceived?

What is a whisper?

Is it used more for love or for fear?

Or is it brought out when we fear love?

A whisper.

Maybe it’s just the natural volume of our human soul.

1 Thing You Want Them to Say About You in 100 Years

Now, this was a tough one.

It wasn’t difficult because virtues or values are hard to come by.

I just found it particularly prickly to land on one thing as a memorial to the soul.

So I came up with a trio of closing possibilities, and after I share them, I will tell you which one I would pick to be known for in 2120.

Here’s the trio:

Funny

Being known as funny is a door-opener during Earthly life and shouldn’t be any different for past remembrance. Once people establish that you’re funny, they can start telling stories which prove their point. In those stories you will always appear to be an ingenious comedian, which is not a bad way to be regarded.

Smart

When you consider the option of being dumb—or even slow—smart has great appeal. Then your family can have recollections of when you used your gray matter to cover all matter of weirdness and problems that came your way.

Kind

Often, it’s the first question we ask about someone we don’t know.

  • Were they kind?
  • Were they nice?
  • Did they choose a profile of openness when meeting others or launching into an encounter?

Kind is just kinda wonderful.

So feeling the need to give a title to this episode of 1 Thing, I personally want to be known as funny.

Because without good cheer, there just doesn’t seem to be any way to overcome the world.
