When I’m out and people ask me “What are you doing these days?”, I have a few stock answers to choose from, but more and more, I’m going to my number one choice of “just watching People’s Court”. Why? I think it’s a quick answer to summarize a portion of my day that really does exist while sufficiently answering a standard small talk question. After all, I know for a fact that certain people are more concerned with comparing themselves to me or searching for something to fuel a condescending remark…so my answer helps play into whatever they were searching for in the first place. Give the people what they want, right?
On the flip side, if my aces want to know what I’m doing, I’ll give them the same answer sometimes as a way to explain that I’m just posted up working on some beats, writing, or eating. I guess to sum it up, my answers are generally based on the truth but delivered in a fashion that allows me to see where a person’s head is at by their reaction. I like to watch you watch me.
So, for all the people out there that are genuinely concerned with what I’m doing…”I’m just watching People’s Court”. For all of you who could care less about what I’m doing…just know that “I’m just watching People’s Court” regardless of your existence. This blog post blows.
P.S. If you respond in person with “Doug Llewelyn 4 Life!” after hearing me say “just watchin People’s Court”, I’ll know you read this and present you with a crisp $10 bill.
