Miracle Pills... and The Myth of Winning a Bet With the Devil... ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ—

Midnight had slipped by as he lay sprawled on his couch, casually flashing through a tessellation of channels, searching for porn.
Momentarily captivated by some frightening images, he gratefully concluded that he couldn't have been happier with his gut.

Especially after seeing all the gross agony others had just shared on his screen. To conclude, they offered a miracle pill, and THAT reassured him. He'd have a foolproof solution if his shit ever hit the fan... so to speak.

Familiar phantoms and late-night zombies lazily nestled in between his ears and began whispering twisted vespers; images of his destiny flashed.

He'd always counted blindness in his top three unwelcome fates; surrendering a brilliant auburn sunset would be unbearable.

The spirits grew more hostile as they chopped off all his limbs, rendered him reliant on strangers, and pushed him along like a hockey puck. For fuck's sake, that helpless aberration gave him shivers.

Those evil ghosts continued - of course - and plastered him with cancer, a tedious and hapless spillage of one's guts into the abyss of endless pain and pharmaceuticals. Infinite torture is the word that came to his mind. Those ghoulish whisperers then rekindled an older memory.

Once upon a time, he'd planned the perfect painless plot; in case he EVER lost a bet with the Devil. He had imagined a romantic summer car crash, yet he'd realized - no one could anticipate intersections. His fear? Despite unbuckled seatbelts, driving with the top-down and rocketing at speeds that would bleed outer limits, what IF he miraculously survived? Ugh. He wasn't a fan of vegetables.

He sat there, shook the horror-filled visions out of his head, and fidgeted with the remote - once again. What had he been searching for? Oh yeah, porn.

He flipped the button, then stalled and eagerly settled into an infomercial on channel 22 - featuring stainless steel steak knives. He had a set of polished chrome sheaths, but he never tired of watching anything that cut through shoes. He wondered if HIS blades could shear leather.

He smiled to himself - as he admired those bayonets sawing through a brick - and realized he should probably watch less television. He was too easily impressed and influenced by the suggestive trance that tube induced. Yet, he was glad he'd learned - earlier - about hope and the miracle pill; and 'hope' is what drives us all, right?

THAT, and free shipping, he muttered as he reached for his phone.

Do you flip through your remote looking for the perfect show to watch, or do you know what you're looking for and stick with it? ๐Ÿค”

I usually know what I'm looking for... until I don't - then I flip... till I just give up. ๐Ÿ˜ถ

Do you shop online, or are you still old school and visit those brick and mortar stores?๐Ÿ˜Š

I don't do much shopping on line. I like to touch something before I buy anything. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

I shop; online for items that I like, and have used for years, but con no longer find in local (is 100 miles local?). Otherwise, I like to lay hands on the product first.

Example: the old fashioned chopper mittens - leather outer mittens with rag wool liners are almost impossible to find locally, but were on the largest South American river site, home of mythical warrior women.

i admit i have been posting a lot of political posts in the last 10 mo.

i did a repost on how to verbally describe color to a blind person.
the first two colors listed was red and blue. but the list went on.
and color was spelled colour.
one of my die hard republican friends went off on me how this wasn't a fair description of red being the color of anger. i had to point out to her that this wasn't a political post!! i had grabbed the post from language nerds.

Guess I also prefer going to a store Paul, and buying the things I can see, and yes, touch! Um ..... and even smell! Hey, something like deoderant you'd need to smell, right? Cos so often the products I've always used - are not available anymore! Truly, most stuff I like and have used for ages are suddenly taken off the market!

..... And always 'hold onto all those sexy thoughts'!

I stream a lot of stuff on Netflix and Hulu.... And will often find myself watching something I've already seen a million times. I'm a creature of habit. As for shopping, I prefer to shop online. I spend enough time with people in a retail setting, I don't want to do it when I'm on my own time too.

I'm happy with my 10" GraniteStone frying pan and also my "WAIT, if you order in the next 15 minutes you'll get a free personal omelette pan for no extra charge! Just pay separate shipping fees" and I don't care what anyone else thinks!

I hear you.
I'll pick up electronics, if I know what I'm getting and the price is right.
I presume that you own a bike? Those mitts sound warm! ๐Ÿ‘

Color is the American way, where as colour is the British spelling.
Hmmm... interesting. How DOES one describe color/colour. What a challenge, for sure.
It would be fascinating to reveal sight to a blind person and find out if the colors they imagined matched what they REALLY are. ๐Ÿค”โ—โ—

lol ๐Ÿ˜‚... I'm like you. I'll watch something for the hundredth time and... catch some minor detail I missed, the first 99. Something reassuring about knowing what happens next.
I understand your point about online shopping! Makes sense. โ—โ—๐Ÿ˜Ž

I have never shopped online. I want to look, touch, and occasionally try stuff on before buying it. Despite the โ€˜Stay At Homeโ€™ order and previous lockdowns, I am not watching a lot of tv. Now that hockey and basketball are back, I will flip to those when the Leafs and Raptors are on.

Stimulate my mind and letโ€™s see what happens ๐Ÿ˜Š

I need to touch things, as well; except for electronics, which I feel comfortable purchasing.
So sports is your vice...? One thing I can probably avoid.
Although I'm currently hooked on the political sports going on with our neighbour to the south. Today is one of those days where I'll be glued to the happenings in DC. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I have to say I tend to watch my DVDs and my TV stays on the Hallmark channel. For shopping, I do go to the store , got too smell the shampoo. I even do on line shopping also.

The light of the lighthouse calms me.

I almost never watch live TV. At any given point in time I'm working my way through seven to ten shows on Netflix, Amazon and Hulu, so I'll pick a couple of those for the evening.

(this morning, I DID watch live TV )

Seven to ten? Omg... I'd never have THAT much dedication. How can you follow them all? I'm usually putting on something that I don't really have to follow, so I can multitask and - work on my phone or PC, or cook. But I'm a slave to movies when I make the time.
So... ya watched Joe didja? Was weird to see no crowds; but interesting. It was a relief, if you know what I mean. ๐Ÿ˜Šโ—โ—

It's actually a story about a guy with an over-active imagination, who's tired and easily influenced by what he sees on TV.
Thanks for popping in and sharing your thoughts. โ—โ—๐Ÿ˜Ž
