big sky ponder
Just imagine: a toilet-paper dispenser that calculates the rate of consumption and tells you when you have to buy a new packet. Not only would it quench your convenience but with such a clever contraption it would become the center-piece of conversation the next time you give a tour of your home.
After pondering about this and other possibly potential time bombs, I had the idea of creating a website dedicated to 55-word stories. Although, technically speaking, that wasn’t a story and it wasn’t made up of 55 words. But nonetheless, it did lead me to the toilet, which brings me back to the theme of websites – a place where people relieve their minds by dumping their unimportant, uninteresting, though sometimes important, sometimes interesting but mostly stupid, thoughts.
