In putting together where I want to go from here…
a writer, a creator, being of love – without fear,

I do like to read.
Dr. Seuss was an author whose info laced me.

I was born to read in-between the lines.
Every publication in print is an insightful find.

You can always learn something, well most of the time.
Even if the learn is the measure of the author’s mind.

I am early in my homebuilding journey and I am mindful to read —
every standard on the topic and what its theory has born-out to be.

Recently, I was out and about in a shopping court
where a vendor at display was a salesman sport.

She approached me with a smile and begin to lark sing
about a technologically advanced flat iron with a lifetime warranty.

Oh my, oh me! I began to pre-visualize a new flat iron in my space.
One, that when it breaks, the warranty guarantees a “free replace.”

Hey! I smiled back at the salesclerk and purchased said product.
For less than $100 bucks I am guaranteed good grooming luck.

Once I was home, I opened the well-secured box,
to find a well-engineered flat iron that looks like it rocks!

Also, in the box was a tri-fold brochure,
that reinforced its lifetime warranty cure.

All my mind was resting on is, “Could it be true,
that this is the last flat iron I’ll ever buy?” Ooo.

As I read the brochure, I quickly realized its fodder,
the lifetime warranty can be accessed for a $25 Money Order.

In order to replace your flat iron in the event that it should break,
mail customer service $25 with the broken flat iron — you’ve now thrice paid.

#1. You bought the flat iron new.
#2. You must mail it back & pay shipping dues.
#3. In addition enclose a $25 money order to them from you.
And in the end, my dear friend, you’ve become “a subscribing, Boo.”

I was excited about the flat iron, but the future would have been hell,
had I not read the brochure that led me to the websites warranty detail.

At which time, I boxed the flat iron back up and took it back to the store,
with a note that said, paying you to replace your product is no “warranty score.”

We are all consumers, and we know what we like,
I pay up easily for a more convenient life.

Read the fine print. It almost will always get ya,’
and read those warranties in detail, they don’t always fit ya.’

My hair is naturally curly, and I most prefer it like this,
but if there’s a flat iron with a human lifespan – I just might buy it.

I’m an avid doer of changing up my mane,
and honest customer service would be a welcome change.

I am sure that the lady at the kiosk meant well,
but that lifetime warranty had its own story to tell

and I didn’t see myself in it.
Story has structure; comprehend it and win it.

So, I’m building a new home and a lot goes into it.
If technology is conveying convenience – I’m almost certain I want to use it.

F.Y.I. This will be my first tech-home and it’s a doozy of a custom build.
I’m up late every night composing script writes and thanking God for what is real.

I’m reading the fine print of the rules and the schematics.
I’m focused on the details to quell future panics.

I read and re-read, so that I understand it.
The fine print is my jam; spare me nothing, I demand it.

In everything that we do we ought to delight in knowing the details,
I’m Qui
Kicking wise conversation with thee; any other convey would result in a fail.

Happy Monday to you – may you be delighted in every second that is spent.
Life is a ball, take flight and don’t fall; all that’s required is to:
