Episode with a Friend Who’s Tired of His Own Thoughts

This friend of mine — he got tired of his own thoughts. “It’s like all my original ideas have been syndicated,” he told me, “and now I just see reruns, like Seinfeld on WGN or whatever.”

To which comment I replied: “That’s unfortunate — although, perhaps you’re overestimating the quality of those same thoughts, which, in most cases, were never any better than According to Jim.”
