366 unusual things: days 299 – 303

25th Oct – When I turn my computer on it grunts like a quietly spoken pig.

26th Oct – At the post office, the woman in front of me was paying her bills in cash.  They totalled $2,100.  It was a long wait while the clerk counted the notes.

27th Oct – Spent two hours researching and writing a blog post of about 400 words.  When I submitted it I received a ‘like’ a literal half-second later.  Not enough time to read even one word.

28th Oct – During the silent prayer time in church, a strange voice called out, ‘WHAT THE…’.  It was an irreverent ring tone on an unsilenced mobile phone.

29th Oct – One of my young students living on a large property has trouble sleeping.  Herds of kangaroos hop right up to his window and snort in the darkness.

    • I’m so pleased you understood what I meant, Allison. I wondered if this ever happens to other bloggers. If I submit a longish post and see the little ‘like’ star appear immediately, I groan, throw my hands up in the air, and know they’ve only looked at the photo.


      • This phenomenon makes me realise that my primary motivation for writing is certainly not to collect “likes”, although I do appreciate them from people who I know read the blog content. What I really love are comments – especially short pithy ones; it is always a challenge to reply in like fashion. 🙂
