I'm ready to have some fun

-A A +A
By John Pawlak

We all like to have fun. It’s fun having fun.
A diversionary ditty of delightful delectation. Some euphoric exhilarating enjoyment. A mild modicum of mirth.
But why bother with the complexities of multisyllabic babble?
Fun, fun, fun! Let’s have some simple fun!
But what to do? I’m not really into sports, so throwing pigskins at people or horseshoes at stakes doesn’t do it for me. (But the idea of throwing horseshoes at people does have its merits.)
I could go to the movies and watch some zombies terrorize people. But why pay for that when I can just turn on CNN and watch Congress terrorize the nation for free?
And I don’t get any kicks out of gambling away my paycheck at the casinos. Besides, a teacher’s paycheck would barely get me past the lunch buffet.
So what to do?
And then it hit me. Why not drive down Central Avenue and do a K-turn in front of Starbucks?
OK, I admit it. In the past, I’ve criticized people for doing things like that. I’ve even gone as far as calling them stupid. Moronic. Imbecilic. Idiotic. Brainless twits. Dead from the neck up.
You know. Less than intelligent? But this is Los Alamos and we’re intelligent people! We’re not stupid, so there must be another reason people make K-turns on Central.
