Is it a poop?

So i was at work fiddling around with a Christmas gift I'd gotten from my coworkers/big sisters, this little toy called "20 Questions". You have to think of something, and the toy will ask you 20 "yes/no" questions for you to respond to, and then it will guess what you are thinking of. Now, let me tell you, if you've never played it, go to Barnes or something and check it out. It will blow your freakin' mind. I'm sitting there thinking of the most obscure things, and it keeps on guessing them right on the dot!


(wtf, how'd it know!?)

(how is that even possible? Love is intangible!!)

So I take it even one step further. I was kind of in a bitter mood that day so I'm thinkin, there's no way this toy has the word "Bitch" stored in its memory. So i go ahead and answer the 20 questions, like "Does it bring joy to people?", "No", etc etc...and lo and behold...

"Is it a woman?"

At that point, I was just sitting there in my office staring at the words on the screen for like 10 minutes. I mean, there is just no way this little thing equates Bitch to = woman.
Either the maker of the toy was as bitter at women as I was that day, or there was a glitch in the system. And try as I might, I can't get it to duplicate the answer I got that day. I'm starting to feel like that thing sensed my emotions that day or something...creepy man..


  1. That's pretty interesting. Funny when something crazy like that happens, eh? Your bitterness is understandable, but also know that time will allow you to let go of that bitterness. How? Something amazing called forgiveness for all that was wrongly done to you. When sincere forgiveness takes place, you really feel happier and at peace. Bitterness only kills one's own soul, not anyone else's.

    "Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good...
    Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice and mourn with those who mourn. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone."
    -Romans 12:9, 17

    I love that whole passage from verses 9-21. It shows how tough it is to truly love and to cling to what is good in this world. One must really CLING to what is good.. in order to hate what is evil. Somehow I think that's so powerful.

    When you're the right person and you meet the right person, I think this resentment towards the female gender will fade away. You'll realize that sincere love can really exist and so can two people who truly care for one another and show it through not just words, but ACTIONS and deeds.

    Because just as faith without works is dead, so is love without actions.

  2. I think at that point it was no longer playing with the game, it was just straight up grilling you on your life.

    Let me guess how it arrived at poop: Do you enjoy eating it? Yes. Do you bake it into muffins? Yes.
