  A Mind Forever Wandering........

I've always had a short attention span. I think if I went to grade school now, my progress report would look something like this:


"AnonymousCog is unable to stay focused on his work, and is always talking to his neighbor. He's like a fruit fly on speed. Please, for the sake of his teachers, the staff, and other students, seek an appropriate pharmacological therapy..."


But when I have a slow day at work, like today, I enter into sort of a stream of consciousness. Let me see if I can recreate it for you in between the persistent ring of my phone.

1st hour:
Hate this place...ring....have a headache....ring....ring....need more coffee.....ring.....add creamer this time......ring...."at the Copa, Copa Cabana.."....ring....

2nd hour:
Ring....I sure miss the A-team.....ring....hey, headaches gone.....ring...ring....%$@#* Customer!!.....ring...."the hottest spot north of Havana..."...ring....ring....maybe another cup.....ring...sex*.....ring....

4th Hour:

I want a puppy........ring.......ring....How similar is class consciousness in different cultures? ........ring.....ring......"I'm proud to be an okie from Muskogee..".... ring...Where did that come from?.......

8th Hour
Ring.......When will this %$#@* day end? .......I wonder who owns this place.......ring......ring...... "A spokesmodel dippied in some refried beans".... Why is Selma Hayek so hot? ......ring...... ring...."I like big butts and I cannot lie! you other brothers cant deny..".....ring ......ring...."With my spear and magic helmet, spear and magic helmet, Speaaarrr and Maaagic Hellmeet...."..ring..

Overtime:

Ring.......%@#$% customer........ring...... ring........"Goin to the country, gonna eat alot of peaches.".......ring......... "Music and fashion are always in fashion at the Copaaahhhh.....don't fall in love....Copa Cabana...."......damn.....









*For you women readers, I'm not obsessed with sex, this sort of thing is normal, for pretty much every guy, even nice guys. I've heard statistics that say, that Italians think about sex more than any other group of men on the planet.I have no way to prove this though, comment below if you know something I dont.
