Whaddya lookin’ for?

Whaddya wanna do?

I dunno.

And so it goes…


The little things.

Mostly forgotten.

Though they add up.

Rounding out the day.

A phrase here, a comment there.

A joke.

A greeting.

A common question.


Such a great word.

Extra ordinary

We say so much.

With so little.

We connect.

With so few syllables.

Yet nothing is lacking.

Quite the opposite.

And this bodes well.

Since we’ve been reduced to monosyllabic text messaging.

And speaking in acronyms.

Maybe talk IS cheap.

BTW this could be TMI.

Whaddya wanna bet?

That’s Mason.
