An Itch to Scratch
Got an itch? Scratch an itch. That’s my philosophy.
It’s not really a philosophy. It’s just mostly an instant reaction, more often than not without much thought, so it can’t really be a philosophy because philosophies require thought. No thinking to be done here.
Sung to the Beatles’ tune of “Love me do”.
Fool fool me do.

Everybody wants to be the singer in the band. The singer is centre stage. All eyes are on the singer.
It’s amazing how the lead guitarist moves those fingers and produces those beautiful or gut wrenching notes because the guitar is an extension of his hands.
My Cell Phone’s Favorite Pet
I am my cell phone’s favorite pet, and I’m proud of it. I was once teacher’s pet, but that didn’t work out because every year I would have a new teacher and have to start all over again. This is much more permanent.
