A Conflict of Words

One day, a few words had it up to “hear” with being misused and misplaced in conversations! In fact, the word “here” just gave me the side eye for that first sentence. So, while I’ve been searching for words to write and the time to write them…a few of them had some issues as well.

First there was “reel!” He figured, since we work together often I should be able to understand his frustrations. I’m a driver for a telecom company and I often deliver reels of wire to several locations. They can get quite heavy sometimes so the work is very “real” to and for me. But, “reel” wasn’t feeling as alive! I told him he was having a Peter Pan moment and he needed to simply look at things in a different perspective. You may not have a pulse, but you allow communication to millions and that my friend, keeps the world alive! He “reelly” liked that…

“Steel” had been a victim of identity theft. He is responsible for many structures, inventions and innovative things that have made the world interesting and sometimes tragic. Steel made the Titanic, but the sinking always “steals” the headlines. Steel made skyscrapers, but the architects steal the notoriety. Steel has even been misused for evil! “Hear” in Chicago, steel guns are heavily used to rob, kill, and yes…steal. The world has tried using more plastic, but even that started to steal the ozone layer. I guess steel can’t catch a break…get it!!!??? 😉

Now these “two” over “hear” were inseparable, and that was part of “their” problem! They were way “too” close “to!!!” They had the same issue as their friends “there” and “they’re!” They all needed some time alone to understand who ownership lies with, where exactly does it lie, and how many persons, places, or things are considered. We won’t even begin to touch on the “lye’s” told while they sorted all that out!

Trying to keep my mind “staid” on the task at hand, I’m glad I “stayed” up to write this post. We must “raise” awareness to the conflicts our words create and be “rays” of hope for positive communication amongst each other. I can only hope I’ve helped out my word friends as much as they have helped me. Because now, I can always return “HERE” to be reminded of our bond and to as usual…

Embrace Nerdy Things!!!
