Ramblings of a Bored College Student
The body of a missing woman was discovered by police this morning during a routine traffic stop. The driver, a former warden, was arrested. He made no comments in regard to the grisly discovery.
No one knows what to say. Dad changes the channel. Another anchorman reports an Amber Alert. They find the boy's body in a field. A girl finds her father slumped in his office. He gave himself one to the head because authorities had seized his computer that morning.
There were pictures of sixteen different boys. The warden only had one victim. No one walks away whole.
Someone told a story about the corporations going after babies. They need to create lifetime customers before the customers are even born. Toddlers need to know that Pepsi tastes better than Coke. Or is it the other way around?
Who chooses what product is the best of its field, anyway? The people on the morning shows set in New York invite guests to dish about the latest fashion. Audience members get free makeovers in a dress that costs $100. Accessories not included. Suck it in, but leave the wallet behind.
There are zero reality shows set in the Midwest. I think. People shudder at the idea of chatting Coco Chanel surrounded by cows. Stereotypes. There is no cow in my backyard. Other girls in the financial aid line pick at their Uggs and show off their purses with patterned Cs.
Pepsi and Coke go flat in my fridge.

This is less than 140 characters. My thoughts should not run that deep or long. People only care about celebrities, anyway.
