fools errand

it’s frustrating dealing with factors that are beyond your control, yet it’s your responsibility to fix them.

i’m told, please think outside the box.

okay, i’ll come back with lofty, yet controlled thoughts.

well, actually think inside the box but consider x, y and z.

okay, perhaps i’ll make a little window here…

yeah, no, come back again and just stick to the box and consider x.

okay…so i can slice a little hole through and i think that will work. under budget too.

just overheard you there, scrap x and just go with the inside the box. but remember  fresh and new, we need to set an example.

boxes were much more fun when they were just used for forts.

  1. It’s never easy to do meaningful work inside a cliche. You are too good for boxes, too creative for envelopes. Bear that in mind as you soldier on, trying to do the impossible.
