Mad as a Hatter!


BGOBGAI Quickie:

Sometimes I feel like simply losing one’s mind is not such a bad thing.  I’ve been accused sometimes of having lost my mind, but sadly, I somehow always seem to find it.  It may be that I need a change of profession to match my insanity and I have one in mind.

Have you ever heard of the phrase “Mad as a Hatter?” Well, this comes from the fact that in the eighteenth and nineteenth century, manufacturers of hats used the dangerous metal mercury.  All this is well and good except for the fact that mercury could cause severe dementia over time and would make people “go mad.”

Sadly, they no longer use mercury in that capacity any longer so my search for a home for my insanity continues.

Any ideas?

Greetings blog wanderers and seekers of truth, or whatever truth appears to be from the mind of a warped individual. You have reached the inner sanctum of some guy named Alan. Having graduated college sometime shortly after the Earth cooled, he finds himself in his late 30's and working out in the real world. His humor is dry and his outlook not so serious and somehow has picked up the nasty habit of writing about himself in the third person. He is married with child and loves his family, sports and, of course, his beloved video games...likelihood of his growing up? Not good. Are you an established site or magazine looking for a writer? Drop me a line if you are interested.
