Sounding Profound while Being Confusing

Inventing the meaningless profoundity.

I practice retirement by working as a security guard at a theme park - great fun - usually.

I had perhaps twenty people come up to where I was standing - enjoying watching people and talking with them. All wanted to know where the bathrooms were, I avoided pointing at the sign and said just the other side of the merry-go- round.

The twenty first surprised me. I offered the standard "The restroom are the other side of the merry-go-round"
before she asked. She said "Nope, she wanted the entrance to the roller coaster."

"The other side of the merry-go-round" I replied accurately.

There is our profound thought of the day:

Anything worth having is always on the other side of the merry-go-round.

Of course we could dress up the confusion and give it conceptual meaning - but it is still blather.

"The worthwhile things are always found by avoiding the noise and motion - going around the attractive nuisances - and discovering what was hidden.

Of course it also pays to read signs or ask questions and listen to the answers.

Now that we have a really silly quote, we can use it in speeches, seminars, and write it up in our columns.

Or not.

Enjoy adding depth to the interpretation in the comments if you wish - or invent and use a confusing profundity in your writing - please let me know about it.

Of course the point of your speech might be to make things clear and not make them confusing.

This story of course was clear as mud - but it covered the ground.

Remember Allan is spelled with two "l"s.
