I was on the phone with a friend, having a cup of decaf…
“I have some new cups,” I said. “I got them today. They’re plain. I like them. They’re not trying.”
“You know. Not trying to be anything. They’re just plain. They are nothing cups and I like them.”
“Everything I have is trying,” she said.
“It is?” I said with a snort.
“Yes. Even my toothpicks are trying.”
“You’re kidding. What you are trying to get?”
“A man!” she laughed. ‘Even my toothpicks are trying to get a man.”
Is your stuff trying? If so, what is it trying to do?
