A few minutes ago I thought to myself: The last thing I need in the entire world is Cool Ranch Doritos.
Then I thought about it again. While the fact hold that I really don’t need Cool Ranch Doritos, are they the thing I need least in the world?
There are things I need less.
I have no use for (and nowhere to put) any livestock. I wouldn’t know what to do with a helicopter and if someone were to give me one of those fancy Lladro porcelain figurines I would probably just sell it on ebay and either march my new money right over to the Apple Store or send it to Visa.
There are things I don’t need because I have more than enough already – like cans of tomato soup or Million Mom March bumper stickers.
I have an entire box of Million Mom March bumper stickers in my laundry room. Don’t ask why, but if you want one (or 50) just send me your address and I will mail them to you.
There are things I don’t need because they are bad. I don’t need to get sick. I don’t need a family tragedy. I don’t need to lose my job, but those aren’t really things you don’t need as much as horrible things that you don’t want to happen.
I’ve thought about it a lot now and I don’t know what the one thing would be that I need least in this world, but it probably isn’t Cool Ranch Doritos.
