Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, Who is the ‘Randomest’ of Them All?


It’s almost 5 pm. It’s time to go home. I should be leaving the office, but right now I’m not sure what I want to do. By the way, I should warn you: This post is as random as random gets. This is the online version of those notes I scribble when mismatched, pointless thoughts are swirling in my head. I have no idea what I’m writing about. I’m literally just letting my fingers run free.

Ever had those moments when you have no idea what you want to do with yourself? This can’t have happened/ be happening to only me. I’m not sure I want to punch a wall or sing a loud song. It might have something to do with the beans and yam and plantain I had for lunch and the Coldstone ice-cream that followed right after. Some sort of chemical reaction may have occurred between the unlikely ‘co-inhabitors’ of my gut to generate behavior-altering substances that have me feeling a way I don’t understand.

It’s almost three weeks into the new year. 2016 is looking good! I have to ask though – where did 19 days go?

I should get moving before traffic builds…

It’s now 22:27.

So I made it finally made it from my seat and while on the road, I started to feel like a manicure was the cure I needed. (That kinda rhymes. I should rap :|) After getting to the nail salon and finding them shut for the day, I decided to make a hair appointment instead. So on Saturday, hello braids! (Amen)

Meanwhile, you probably have that one friend who calls your phone, and for the first few rings you’re asking yourself why he even bothers to stay in touch and when he’d just stop, yet in all your saccharin sweetness,  you never go ahead and tell him to go away. (And I know I’m not the worst there is. Don’t lie. You have one too.) Have you ever wondered if you are also that fish bone to someone else? Have fun mentally running through a list of your friends while trying to identify whose throat you’re stuck in. LOL.

At this point you’re probably waiting for me to get to the point. (Again, I should rap.) I did warn you that there was none. If you’ve only just realized that this article is disjointed, then you owe me an apology 🙂



Go ahead, share:

  1. Random and Randy. Wondering if one can use them in a rhyme. Reminds me of the Rand. A lot of ‘R’ words here already and my name doesn’t even start with R. I mean my real name not the one I use here (obviously). Come to think of it, there’s no month of the year or day of the week that starts with R – At least in English. Talking about South Africa, I’ve never been to Cape Town. Warreva mehn. I’m tired and I have to go to work. Phew!

  2. Lmao! Crazy people on here I tell you.
    I actually read till the end and posted a comment…
    I clearly have issues…
