The Wrong Way

PG was eating breakfast. He was sitting at the machine, where he spends most of his waking, at home, hours. He was looking at his latest blog post, and thinking how cool it was. He fed a spoonful of food in his mouth, followed by a sip of tea.

Something went wrong. Somehow, the tube for breathing was open at the wrong time, and food and beverage went into an improper medium. Immediately, the food product came out. The monitor and keyboard were decorated.

Gasping for air, trying to expel the rest of the misdirected meal, PG got up and ran to the bathroom. Coughing violently, with tears coming out of his eyes, the last of the misdirected meal exited the quivering orifice. Fright began to set in. This was very close to a fatal situation.

While the prospect of working was not pleasant, the idea of spending this day, and innumerable days to come, in a lifeless state, was worse. While the idea of living long enough to labor eight more hours is quaint to some, today it will just have to do.

PG woke up on a cold January morning, facing a day at the facility. Wrecklessly stumbling into facebook, the first thing to catch his eye was “Um, I’m not the only one who just saw the N-word on Sharon Needles’ FB page, right?”

Aaron Coady has been in the spotlight before. He is an entertainer, with an effort made to be edgy. Some find his act amusing. PG is not one of those people.

It is tough to say who is worse here. If Mr. Coady did indeed use a racial slur on facebook, then he is a poopyhead. If this is a hoax, then someone else is a poopyhead. If this is a Duck Dynasty-style publicity stunt, then a few people have been fooled twice.

There is also the pearl clutching that goes on whenever a PWOC utters a word that is reserved for the exclusive use of POC. Is anyone else bored by this? The judge in the Paula Deen case threw out the racism part of the lawsuit. Maybe, someday, people will find something else to be outraged over.

There is a writing challenge this week. The ides is to use the word whatever, as an adverb. The word should mean that something is useless. The adverb part is tricky. “Whatever floats your boat” qualifies, but is boring. Just like the n word.
