Pizza

So I've got myself a flat round pie to keep me company as I work. I slowly take out a slice, and take the first bite. Feels. Good. With the slice poised in my left hand, I take a break from photoshop and start clicking through my regular sites. The usual goings on. Then on to the blogs. The usual, but Recent Events seem to have nailed in a tone of desperation to the anti-war and general anti-government posts. I look to see my first slice is already over. Get another. Read through the posts and see first the attack on a TV station. Petrol bombed. It seems not all that comes out of fuel price reductions is good. Oh look, second slice down the hole. Everyone's starting to take notice of what's going on. Indifference used to prevail round these parts. The war had been going on for decades and people just got used to it. Now that an outspoken journalist has been killed, an uproar starts. Only to slowly dwindle away again, I fear. I move onto my last few slices. Notice how you slow down and try to make those last few bites last longer? You just relish the taste in your mouth for a few seconds. A click here and a click there bring me to yet another post about how our country is going to hell in a handbasket. Press Freedom is merely a single casualty in a rolling sea of errors we are told. But people just go on. I'm on my last piece now. Better enjoy it.

Short, but crap writing, mediocre writing, or good writing?

Jerry said...

But what has that got to do with anything?

Sachintha said...

You should have gotten a large. Lasts longer... :D

Jerry said...

But it makes my money last less. ;)

But people, read the STORY!!! Didn't any of you do english lit at school or something? :P

Sachintha said...

Erm... no I didn't...
But who wants a story anywayz when there is a pizza? :P

Jerry said...

Nah man, that bit was directed at the 'general public'.

Gahh...

Yeah, I thought it would be either small or medium. The pizza, obviously.

So, I've been trying to work my way through as many blog posts as I can read... I read this one a while back, but couldn't post the comment due to some net error..

Anyway- I like this- not the situaltion in SL, just what you've written... it's more similar to what's happening in my country than I care to think..

PS: I like Bob :)

Jerry said...

Well there are many unmentioned pieces so it could just as well have been a large :P

Glad you liked it, but how is it, technically? Just wondering...

And you might notice I've knocked Bob around a bit. This is bar-fight Bob.

mixedblessings89 said...

Now you mention it, I can see the bar- fight in bar- fight Bob.

How is what, technically?

The post, I was wondering if it was.... compelling. As of late, I've had to start writing stuff to sell themes to clients.
