I like circles. They’re neat little shapes with a beginning and an end that depending on how you look at one, can either standout or fade into the abyss of its shape.
I don’t care for squares—never been a fan of right angles either. I mean how boring is a right angle? (Totally boring!) Triangles are fine, (I like things that come in odd numbers) as are trapezoids and all those crazy shapes that do their own thing. But when it comes right down to it, I like circles the best. I like them when I run because I know I can always find my way back. And I especially like them when I drink martinis … circles can be so much fun when mixed with olives and vodka … particularly when you run into one (literally) at a restaurant or bar.
Last year, I was out with a group with of friends when I had the marvelous experience of running in and around a revolving door … you know, like in the movie Elf. The valets didn’t think I was very funny, but the hostess was amused as were most of the incoming guests. One gentleman even left his seat at the piano bar and joined me for a few rounds. Of course I think he was more interested in the prospect of getting close to me than the actual running around in circles but, it was exhilarating, nonetheless. Really—just until the point where one of my friends joined me, pulled me out, tossed me over his shoulder and insisted that it was time to leave (much to the dismay of the guy from the piano bar). Apparently my friend hadn’t had as many martinis as I and didn’t find my shenanigans very funny. He must like squares.
Oh, and for all you super smart people out there … the equation above is The Equation of the Circle. Yes, it’s a real thing. Duh.
