People are fascinated with what other people think is important. Take for instance how to travel light or what to keep on a deserted island.
While updating my LinkedIn.com profile the other day, I received a message about a blog post titled “Things I Will Carry”. I was curious to see what that person considered the most valuable items to carry.
Well soon as I read it, another message showed up about things another person will carry.
Then another and another.
So I Googled it and found 773,000 websites with things I will carry. Now that is a lot of things. Who could possibly carry them all?
What was really odd was people said they would carry their fetish or their geekiness.
I will defend any geek and accept most fetishes, but to tout them on a blog is over the top.
I will stick to my blogs about death, zombies and President Obama. Did I actually put all of those in the same sentence? Awesome!
P.S. Being an engineer, I have to confess, I will always carry a pen to write with. But no pocket protector for me.
