It’s Dark. It’s Late. It’s Quiet. Why? (video)

It was dark.  It was late.  Nobody was out.  It was quiet.  Too quiet?  Maybe.

But I needed to know:  Why was it so quiet?    Why wasn’t anyone out.  I knew why it was dark.  Because it was late.  When it’s late . . . it’s dark.  I could have been a detective.

My wife, ever the skeptic, said “Ever think it’s quiet and no one’s out because EVERYONE IS SLEEPING?”  I asked her what she meant.  She said “It’s quiet and no one is out here because EVERYONE IS SLEEPING!”  Sure, fine.  That’s one way of looking at it. 

Sometimes though, you need to look beyond the obvious.

    Very, very interesting. It’s good to know that someone else is on the edge of sanity with me.

    LOL… you’re so retarded. Haha.

    Everyone was probably away CAMPING. My girlfriend (and seemingly everyone else on the planet) all went this weekend. I bet it was a big thing that everyone knew about except us… :-/

    I once did a play called Beyond the Fringe…..I believe folks like you and I…..we live just beyond the fringe. 🙂

    Such cunning investigative work! Someone has to be on the alert at times like this. You are obviously the man for the job.


  5. Jules says:

    Good detective work. Perhaps we’ll see a follow-up?


  6. PhillyPat says:

    Riveting… absolutely riveting.

    Jason Bourne has nothing on CG. Wait, is your real name David Webb?


  7. CGabriel says:

    Jules…I think a follow-up is a near-certainty. 🙂

    You owe me 54 seconds back.


  9. Yes please, a follow up!
    My other reaction: I love knowing people who are creative and imaginative! You make me want to make goofy videos with my flipcam! (Which is so teeny that I actually couldn’t find it when I looked for it this morning. Oh well. I’m sure it’s around the house somewhere.)

    Timmy Tupelo….due to the economy being what it is, we couldn’t possibly give back more than 27 seconds. We need that extra time. 🙂
