Moment by Moment

… just some nice thoughts for the new year …

Silent Computer

The time had come to have “The Talk” with my current computer system:

I don’t know how to say this, so I’ll just come out and say it: I’ve outgrown you.
You’ve gotten too slow and noisy, and I feel I can no longer rely on you.
Really… it’s not you… no, wait… it is you!
Maybe it’s best we just go our own ways.

And so, the hunt for a new computer began!

Words.

We’re bombarded by them every day. Some of us even get paid to speak them.

But what if the words were changed?
What if they only made sense when you read them out loud?

Here’s a classic fairy tale rewritten using totally different words, yet understandable when spoken.
