Rhetorical value of nothing
Sorry for the lack of updates the last few days guys. I have been very busy and if I want to be honest, I have been very lazy with writing as well :( Today, I finally had time to relax having some nice hot cappucino at my favorite place, Crossroad cafe just outside the Marriott hotel. Then it dawn on me... I haven't post anything for the past five days! Yikes! My mind went into overdrive and started to desperately search for ideas.
Findings ideas to write has always come very easy for me. Oh nooo not today. I got none. My first "writer's blog" ha ha ha.
I looked at the couple sitting next to me. They seemed to be in love. (Yawn) boring. Then there is this screaming kid two tables from me.. yeah.. I really want to write about that one (Sarcastic:). Finally I had an epiphany which came via two Indonesian guys sitting across from me. They were eating doughnuts. So I ask myself, "Why doughnut always have a hole in the middle of it?" Think about it. Do you have an answer to that question? I mean really.. "Who was the genius that decided to put a hole in the middle of a very good food??"
Then the question kept coming.. stupid ones.. and it is penetrating me like a thousand lighting bolts. "How do chair look like if knees bend the other way?"
"Why do we listen to sad song when we just got dumped and we're trying to feel better?" Speaking of broken heart... "Why do we cry when we are sad?"
"Why do we say 'God bless you' when someone sneezes"
"Why do we write from left to right? What do letters look like if we write from right to left?" "Who was the genius that designed the toilet seat to be so ugly? Why do we have to sit when we have to use the damn thing? Why?? Why?? Why???"
And then came the classic question.. "If a tree falls in the forrest and there is no one there to listen. Does it make a sound?" I do know the answer to this one.
Aaah.. the lack of ideas...
