Choosing the Trivial.

According to Feedjit, an old post of mine – Feeling Nadgy – is veritably trending on Facebook at the moment.

Isn’t it just the way? You spend all that time and effort trying to write things of consequence, and its something utterly inconsequential which gets all the attention. Imagine if you were W Shakespeare and your most well known creation was:

The boy stood on the burning deck
The wind was making him shiver
He gave a cough and his leg fell off
And floated down the river

Not that WS wrote that, of course, and neither did I; I heard it as a kid somewhere. But you get my drift. And I’m still having trouble acknowledging the verb ‘to trend.’
