Oh, I used to have one, I promise. And it worked pretty good. But it’s gone now, that brain o’ mine. Been thinking about putting up posters on the light posts: Lost Brain, pinkish gray in color, answers to “hey, moron…”
But, never mind about that, because, what can you do? You’ve lost your mind and there’s no hope of getting it back. Bye, bye, brains.
Here’s what’s wigging me out:
I made a cheerful little video on YouTube. This is the link. Even if you’re not interested in the subject matter, the music’s cool.
It’s posted on my sister site, SkippityWhistles.com. If you haven’t visited there, you’re a member of a very large club. Very large.
Anyway, my brother and I share opposite political views, which, given the current vehemence, makes communication difficult. I’m sure he’s come up with some justification for today’s events (no doubt, he’s listening to talk radio and nodding his head that these thugs are all fine people. If those are the pillars of their communities, what kind of towns are those?)
Anyway, it’s hard to communicate with him.
And yet, I get a text from his this morning: he’s seen my video. It was recommended to his feed by YouTube – just popped up as a suggested video. What? What?
So, you know that YouTube only recommends videos that gets lots of views, right? I mean, that’s how the algorithm works.
So, here is where the brain slipped right out the window and I’ve not seen it sense.
Two. Two is the loneliest number since the number one, and that’s the number of views my video has gotten. If you watch it, you’ll increase my audience by 50%. See? I haven’t lost my math skills!
I don’t get it. I don’t get this stupid day. I don’t get those stupid people who crashed windows and put MAGA hats on statues in our nation’s capitol. I don’t get why that yutz thought it was okay to put on a Native American headdress and paint his face red, white and blue. I don’t get it.
And, I don’t get why YouTube chose to recommend my silly little video to my brother.
It must be wine o’clock by now.
