If you could be a tree, any tree, what kind would you be? and why?


#721

Why don’t you just take up tennis or something. Irony – the irony – is kind of not really, like, your thing. :cactus:


#722

Some people do irony. Some do what they imagine to be irony. And some do repetition.

People are weird. And usually very boring.


#723

We do not talk to others for entertainment, I guess. It’s just nice to walk along together, to give a quiet nod to a fellow traveller, sometimes.

One of the things I first noticed in Taipei is that, unlike SE Asia, Westerners don’t do the ‘silent nod’ when they pass in the street. It happened almost every time in VN or Laos or Cambodia. Yet in TW? I got blank stares back, so I stopped doing it and everyone seemed happier.

I honestly believe that the sort of Westerner who comes to TW is quite different from the sort who travel or live in SE Asia.

Guess which I prefer :wink:


#725

Today I am a nodding-when-I-pass-Westerners tree.


#726

Today, I am a 2-be-or-not-2-be-irony tree. Kind of ironic, isn’t it?


#727

Nope.


#728

I am, increasingly, coming to admire you Ermintrude.

Don’t fret. I live in a distant land :slight_smile:


#729

How ironic. :wink: :eh:


#730

Today, I am a Pentecost tree. NOTE: I am NOT a PentecostAL tree but just a Pentecost tree. NOTE: NO irony is involved in this statement, intended or otherwise.


#731

Today, I am a Moliere tree. Some will find that ironic; others may not. How ironic!


#732

Today, I feel like a very old tree… like one who has done 1,000 posts or something…


#733

Today, I am a constipated tree. Am I German? MOVE NOW! KEEP OFF THE GRASS!!! Follow the rules!!! You will obey!!! Oops… I guess I must be… German AND constipated :laughing:


#734

Today, I am a PEGIDA tree. I have gone from constipated, uptight Germanitree to constipated, uptight, xenophobic, fascist, holier-than-thou, intolerant, moralistic, brow-beating, my-way-or-the-highway tree. But I’d like to think that I am peaceful, tolerant, welcoming and care about the environment but those tendencies are perhaps still in their acorn phase.


#735

Today, and ONLY TODAY, I am a tree that is caught between a Hard Rock and a Cafe!


#736

I thought that was you.


#737

Don’t order the guacamole.


#738

TREE KILLERS!!! When is America going to sit up and TAKE NOTICE of these horrible atrocities!!! It is time to RAISE AWARENESS and TAKE ACTION NOW!!!


#739

Today, I am a why the fuck are all the world’s problems something that I am supposed to care about/deal with? Why? WHY? Stop the world! I want to get off!


#740

Today I am a Penthouse for Eagles tree. Don’t ask me why. I just am.
