I just wasted one minute and seventeen seconds of my life watching a bird dance to a Backstreet Boys song. The things you can get sucked into via the internet! And now, because I know you will be too curious to resist, I will provide the link so that you, too, can waste one minute and seventeen seconds of your life.
But here is the question, what else could I have done in one minute and seventeen seconds? I could have:
prayed for someone
heated up water for a delicious cup of tea
jotted down an idea for an article or story
tidied up some (small) area of my house
read a verse
hugged one of my children and said, "I love you and I am blessed to have you in my life."
Instead, I watched a bird boogie. So, what say you? What can you think of that would be a better use of a minute and seventeen seconds? Or is it just that sometimes, watching something mindless and stupid is exactly what you need to spend a few minutes doing? Deep thoughts for a Friday afternoon!
I must say, that bird did make me laugh!
