I dare you to watch this and not be moved. Sure, it’s an ad from the one of the biggest companies in the world who really know how to market themselves cleverly, but put that aside for one moment. Is that guy who jumps off his motorbike to move that vehicle out of the way of a moving train not one of the world’s unsung heroes? And what about the other guy who risks life and limb for that runaway dog? Not to mention all those workers going about their daily jobs injecting an element of humour into their day and making what may be menial jobs worthwhile. One day, I want to be one of those music addicts dancing like no-one’s watching in the streets. Just imagine how much fun that really would be.
In the meantime, I’ll amuse myself by attending my son’s school’s trivia night tonight. There, I will astound people with my lightening fast responses to cartoon theme songs and questions asking who wrote that science fiction classic from 1956 that nobody else read. Yes, there does come a time my friends, when the terabytes of seemingly useless information stored in my brain cavity come into good use. I will venture forth, knowing that tonight, I have purpose!
For those of you without a trivia night ahead of you, I wish you well. Park yourself somewhere comfy with a nice glass of the good stuff and enjoy your evening. I’m sure you’ve deserved it.
