Either way, its not like I'm completely without ideas. I could write about Thursday evening when I ventured out to The Place to find all my friends in a drunken stupor, but you've all heard that story before in one form or another.
Tough to write more than 100 words about that.
I could tell you about all the cool stuff I got for Christmas, but people try to tell me that kind of shit all the time and I just ignore them. I just nod and repeat the words "uh huh", "cool", and "nice" to disguise the fact that I'm not listening to a word that's coming out of their mouths.
Mom nagging me about something? "Uh huh"
Friend going on and on about their fantasy football team? "Cool"
Co-worker trying to tell me about all the useless shit their sister got for Christmas? "Nice"
Its an all-purpose substitute for the words "I don't care." They get what they want: someone to tell their bogus stories to. I get what I want: not actually having to listen to their bogus stories. Its a win-win proposition. If they notice what I'm doing and are offended by it, I explain that I chose a more polite way of doing what I actually wanted to do in the first place - tell them to shut up.
