This Is About Nothing

January 16, 2014

Today is January 16. It’s Nothing Day. This is good because I have nothing to write.


When it comes to nothing, teenagers have cornered the market. They are nothing experts. Try asking a teenager a few questions.

“What did you do today?”


“What did you say?”


“What do you have there?”


As you can see, what a teenager says adds up to nothing. There’s nothing like a teen/parent relationship.

People do a lot of nothing. I admit. I’m guilty of doing nothing. If we’re not careful, nothing could become a national epidemic. If that happens, nothing would ever get done!

It would behoove us to talk about nothing. There are naysayers who would debate the fact you can’t talk about nothing. They’re wrong. Talking about nothing indicates you’re talking about something  which is nothing!

What have you learned from this post? Probably nothing, and that’s the way it should be. Everybody should know about nothing.

If you’ve got nothing to do, check this book out. Two friends, Mooch and Earl, find the best gift of all is nothing.
