A boy’s interest in Pinterest

My rubber chicken board

I kept hearing all about Pinterest. And I didn’t know what to do.

So I signed up for it.

And then I still didn’t know what to do.

So then I looked to find other guys who were on Pinterest. And I found their “boards.”

And I discovered they hadn’t done ANYTHING.

In case you’re all kinds of confused, like me, Pinterest is a social media phenomenon. And I would like to be a phenomenon, wouldn’t you?

It’s this thing where people are on it. And they have pretend boards. And they “pin” pretty or interesting pictures to their pretend boards.

Most of the stuff that gets pinned is hairdos or fashion or kinds of exercises.

I am not interested in hairdos or fashion or exercises.

Can you tell?

So what could I pin?

The answer was soon clear: rubber chickens.

So I pinned a bunch of rubber chickens.

And then I pinned a bunch of bouncy exercise balls.

And then I pinned several pictures of the celebrated hip hop hype man Flavor Flav.

I stood back from my boards and I experienced great satisfaction.

But now what shall I pin?

What do you pin, gentle readers?

    I loooove Pinterest! There is some ‘guy’ stuff on there . . . technology, science, architecture, photography, etc. I think more guys will get on there eventually. Right now you are just ahead of the curve :-)

    I pin lots and lots of food and cooking stuff on my boards. I also pin travel destination pics, cute animal pics, fancy cocktail beverage pics, cool photography and art pics, even household decorating and cleaning tips.

    It’s fun! Come on, all the cool kids are doing it!

    Brad, I am inspired by your innovative use of Pinterest. I might have to check it out for myself.

    I’ve mostly been interested in ideas for organizing my mess. But I get so wrapped up in looking for cool new ideas that I haven’t really done much about actually organizing my mess.

    Thanks for the support and ideas, you guys. I wish I could think of something useful to pin. Maybe I will soon.
