What Do You Think About This New Idea? – Rant Board!

What Do You Think About This New Idea? – Rant Board!

Sometimes I need a sounding board. Don’t we all?

I have visions of this big white padded board set up against the wall in my back room. The pristine white cloth is stretched tightly across the heavily padded canvas.  The more I rant, the darker the cloth gets, the padding in its belly swelling more and more with each new rant until it’s full to the brim and can hold no more as I transfer my anger towards it, then – **!!POW!!** – the darkened board blows apart, spewing the ugly rants into the hemisphere, disappearing into thin air.

That’s when I need a new rant board. 😦

Really, I shouldn’t have so much to rant about – and I don’t – but sometimes…a person can only take so much!

I feel better already and can’t even remember what was bothering me.  😉  That board really works. There may be a market for this. Hummm?

Anybody out there need a rant board?

  1. My need for a rant board all but dissipated after my four children (within four years from youngest to oldest) moved out. Four teens and/or twenty somethings that think they know everything will make anyone rant. Thankfully, they are now young adults.

  2. As my mum always said: It’s better out than in! 🙂 Or was she referring to something else..?

  8. I’m less of a ranter, more of an avoider. Suppose that’s not good either. 😉
