I Am Becoming

I'm at work right now, as I write this, and I just wrapped three strips of scotch tape around the pads of my index, ring, and pinkie finger.

Joke: Ever wonder why they call it SCOTCH tape; I ate a whole roll and didn't even catch a buzz.

I am bartending for work now and there are two people in the bar with their backs to me feeding the state of Oregon likely the better part of their pay/disability check. This is also known as Oregon's video lottery. Occasionally I have to cash a voucher or mix a drink or hang a food order but I spend the majority of my time watching TV, playing with my iPod, or in this case, writing.

Scotch is not the proper tape for this sort of thing. I would prefer white tape the thickness of a bottle cap, but I am making due.

I was satisfied with the look.

The following disturbs me because it's the truth. If you don't understand it that's okay because I don't really either.

I am, I stared down at my fingers then shook them real fast before coming to a clean, practiced, frozen SNAP, checked for more witnesses then removed the tape, becoming.

Thanks for the feedback for those who actually read this.

I re-read this before I typed it out and considered it worth posting and sharing. It was sort of a puzzle but not hard to figure out, I thought.

I referenced dancing and putting tape on my fingers and doing a little dance move. And then suggested that I am becoming (something different).

Can you think of someone besides me who dances and puts tape on his fingers?

I can think of only one person, personally, so I think it's pretty much narrowed down.

It's ridiculous, and nearly impossible for anyone to believe, but it's true. Same would apply to any grown man who can honestly call a water balloon fight his favorite "sport."

I should note the transformation is only really taking root with some hits of weed in my system.

You'll be even less appreciated now than you used to be.

called clear single sided tape "Scotch" was an insult, referring to the frugality of the scots in a derogatory way. Most tape being sold at the time was sticky on both sides, it was referred to often as Scotch tape because the manufacturers were being cheap on glue.

It's just, you know, I feel we have a right to know if you're gay.

Silence of the Lambs or Red Dragon? Either way this didn't imply killing at all... I was actually getting ready to dance but felt too sloppy.

Tape? Not as effective as killing women and making clothes out of their skin, but whatever works I guess.

Marge: Homer, is this the way you pictured married life?

Homer: Yup, pretty much. Except we drove around in a van solving
