My wife read my yesterday's blog posting last night and pointed out that I wrote that there were only 9300 "birds" in the world. I meant to say 9300 "bird species". Did the same thing with the amount of bird species in North America and Texas. Sorry for that, I now stand corrected.
Some of the commercials on TV are boring, but a few are at least a little entertaining. I actually enjoy the GEICO ads they have been putting on lately. They want to impress on you that if you buy their insurance that you will be happy, happier than a lot of things. Like "happier than the Pillsbury Boy going to a baking convention" or 'happier than a camel on hump day" and others. I like their premise and their ads. I would love to have a job writing that stuff.
This got me to wondering what if the reverse premise was used? You know, like unhappy instead of happy. Let me see, how about "unhappier that a sword swallower with the hick-ups". Or a dieter or diabetic at a candy convention. Or being best man at the love of your life's wedding. Or really bad weather for your only vacation week of the year. Or writing a blog every day for a year and never getting any comments. There could be a lot more, but I would like to hear you all come up with some. I am sure you have a lot better ideas than I have or the ad writers, so list some in the comment section and have a great day you hear.
