Pennies From Heaven

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

I have nothing to say. Almost.

We all got together to go someplace and then decided not to go there. So we went someplace else.

Trombones and trumpets playing with a pipe organ. Everything is tubes.

I have a large bowl of coins sitting on my desk.

Don't display relics.

Air vibrates through the tubes and makes sound.

I lost my watch. Almost.

When I accidentally knock over the bowl, the coins spill on the floor and then I have to pick them all up and put them back into the bowl, one by one.

Don't display ruins.

Our blood vibrates through our tubes.

Where did we all go, I wonder?

A pipe organ is all tubes. Think of that.

I don't collect pennies.

Why didn't Elsa keep her mouth shut? "Just like a woman" he said.

When something costs $9.98 it's easier to give her a $10 bill than to count out 98 cents with people in line behind you.

Maybe we went dancing. I don't remember.

I pick them all up, all the thoughts, ideas, facts, figures, hopes, dreams, fears, regrets and put them back into the bowl, one by one.

Don't display errors.

At the bottom of the ocean there are creatures who live in tubes.

Most of the coins are pennies.

No, I think we all went home.

I found my watch. It was also on the floor.

Yes. I think we all came home, one by one.

Display love.

Hi DB, I have to pass on this one, I am confused. It doesn't take much to confuse cave dwellers.

Dag... I WISH I had been allowed to read what was said and the response... anywho...

Sometimes, I think that I am nonsense. More often than not, that is exactly what I am.

Right now, you could say that I am feeling that way. I liked the randomness of this post. I can only hope it isn't indicative of a inner turmoil, though.
