Mad Mondays: The Speed Up

Sometimes on Mondays I peel back my gelled hair and give you a peek into the insanity that is my brain.

We call these Mad Mondays because I might be crazy and yesterday was Sunday.

The Speed-Up

Sometimes at work if there’s someone about 10-20 feet behind me in the hallway, I will turn a corner and speed up very fast for about 8 seconds while i am out of that person’s view.

Then I slow back down to my normal pace so that when my coworker turns the same corner and sees me 30 feet in front of him (instead of 20), but still walking at the same pace that he saw me at before i turned the corner, he says to himself, “How is Bryan that much further ahead of me right now when he and I have both been walking at the same speed?”

I have done this probably five hundred times before, and I am still waiting for someone to stop me and say,

“Hey, something has been bothering me from earlier this morning. Remember when you were walking in front of me and all of a sudden you were a lot further in front of me than you were before you turned the corner? Was that magic or something?”

And then I’ll say, “Look, don’t tell anyone about this. I have a gift.”

And then I’ll walk away really fast like I just robbed a bank wearing a Ronald Reagan mask.

It hasn’t happened yet, but I can’t wait until it does.

It’s so much fun blowing people’s minds.
