change is in the air, and i don't mean the weather. i also don't mean the kind of change that will happen in just a few months. more like a general shifting of things.
ed and i have always felt like we were meant to do something different than everybody else. there's no way to say that without sounding like a pretentious asshole. but if you knew us, you would know that's not the case.
over the past year or so, we have been throwing around this idea of starting a bakery in the hood. not like "we could put sam wiggins on the logo!" more like "where's page 2 of the business plan?"
we have a name, which i'll keep to myself, and we have an idea that would make us different than other bakeries in a 10 block radius. or most of manhattan for that matter. i'll also keep that to myself. not that i don't trust you guys, but, well, i don't trust you.
whether it happens or not depends on a lot of things. we need investors, money saved up, and a remarkable business plan. those are a lot of variables being tossed in the air that may or may not land in our favor.
but it's an itch we have to scratch. something about it feels right. like it was meant for us. we don't want to have kids in the next 10 years..... that's right, 10 years.* i'm 27, you do the math. how many couples our age can say that? we have few friends that don't already have kids, or aren't TRYING to make some babies like it's their job.** there's nothing wrong with that. but it's not right for us. not right now.
doesn't that say something? if we don't want to bring small humans into the world in the next 10 years, shouldn't we be doing something huge with these next 10 years? maybe we haven't put our finger on it with this bakery thing, but something is in the works. i feel it.
ps: on a non-serious note, check the rapping flight attendant.
*when i'm preggers in 2 years, you can say i told you so.
**i've now offended almost everyone in 1 single post.
