Different Point of View

We spent too much of yesterday dealing with a broken hot water heater, resulting in the third visit from a repairman this week and generating a lot of grumbling from us about planned obsolescence. We’ve been mindful lately of the words of the great philosopher Tyler Durden:  “The things you own, end up owning you.”

So when I went to check on the animals, it was refreshing to see the pigs enjoying themselves, wholly unconcerned with such things.

    Hey, happy pigs makes up for a lot of distress.

    I’m impressed by the Fight Club quote. Gotta say, didn’t expect that here.

    On the other hand, those pigs depend on you as much as you depend on repairmen.

    As long as we’re quoting philosophers, let’s not forget Janis: “Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose”.

    The pigs would manage without me, but they wouldn’t get fat as quickly. There is a certain planned obsolescence about them as well, however, but they’re happily oblivious to it. 🙂

    Janis was quoting the great philosopher Kris Kristofferson. Tyler Durden said something similiar, “It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything.”
