I think the problem with asking the Universe for something is not that the Universe doesn’t answer, but that if time and space are infinite, then getting the universe to answer you within your own lifetime, let alone in the same week you ask for something, is like trying to find a specific atom on a specific day a billion years ago.
What is a billion years in infinity? It’s not even a blink of an eye.
Maybe every girl who wishes for a pony has their wish granted, but due to the scope of space and time, it doesn’t necessarily show up when and where it’s actually wanted…
Even if, in the grand scope of things, it’s pretty darn close.
That awkward moment you start a sentence and you have no idea where it’s going or where it will eventually end up because you haven’t really thought that far ahead and it reminds you of when you were a kid and your teacher told you not to write run-on sentences and you were like, “I’m not, I just have a lot to say!” but she didn’t seem to understand in much the same way as when you talk to cats and they just give you that look that says, “Whatever you’re saying, human, stop now. I’m not interested.” which is different from dogs because all dogs ever think are “Is it time to play ball?”, “Can I eat it?”, “Should I pee on it?” and “I wonder if it will be friends with me.” so yeah, sometimes sentences are like driving in a blizzard (or a light rain, for you Californians), you never know where you’ll end up.
Usually happens in interviews or when you suddenly realize you have no idea what you’re talking about and desperately try to find a way out or when you suddenly find yourself talking with people that you realize you have no interest in talking with.
That awkward moment you’re approached by a woman who says, “Excuse me. I don’t mean to bother you, but you look like you’re good with computers…”
Because yeah, I am good with computers — but I’m pretty sure I don’t want to give off the kind of vibe that when a woman looks at me she thinks, “That guy right there! That guy looks really good with computers.”
