Who's Got Time to Think?

The "Latest Thinking" assumes people are actually taking the time to think, when in fact, it appears that we are not allowed to think at all.

The Latest Thinking assumes people are actually taking the time to think when, in fact, it appears that we are not allowed to think at all.  I mean who really thinks about anything anymore? 

What I mean is that in every facet of our everyday lives the thinking is being done for us subliminally, subconsciously, organically or intravenously in any order that fits your underutilized conscious thought.

Many of us are at a point where 'thinking' has become just too damn hard. Thinking means working, and who wants to work?  Slinging burgers at a fast food joint with a crappy car; being in a sorry relationship with spoiled kids; stuffy neighbors; I can go on and on about things that make us want to get away. 

Why do you need to get away?  You get away to get away.  What are you getting away from?  You're getting away to just let things go.  And what does that mean?  You get away so you don't have to think about the latest thing you should be thinking about.

The 'latest' thinking is you deciding to watch a much-hyped and anticipated comedy reunion. Sitting down with your significant other or possibly a group of friends and finding them all laughing their heads off after every laugh-tracked joke, while you sit there wondering what the hell was so damn funny? 

Especially when all you're hearing is the repetitive laugh track; now they're looking at you as if something's wrong with you. You're then asked "what's the matter?" you say, 'nothing.'  They think you have an attitude, but you don't really. 

It's just you attempting to understand the joke on its own merit and the others are laughing because they are responding to a laugh track. The latest thinking means to laugh due to a laugh track.  Don't think, just laugh.  Ha ha....get it?

But what's the use?  "The Latest Thinking" we choose to write about must mean or amount to something, shouldn't it?  I mean, after all I did write something that I hope makes some semblance of sense. 

I probably should stop before I attempt the talk about the latest thinking and discover the latest thinking is simply whatever you're happening to think about at the moment........that is if you're allowed to.

Pssssst......are you sure it's ok to write about what the latest thinking is?   Why?!  What do you mean why?!  Oh what's the use.......I've forgotten about the latest thinking I was thinking about anyway!
