“Yeah”, I reply as I shrug, “it’s a decent title for a blog post–but, consider relaxing on naming or looking for the lesson from the situation.  Consider the real situation and what really happened–you and digital.Bilfty2.1 were attacked by a fucking large shark.  Don’t minimize the incident by seeking meaning before you have had to accept what happened.  It is a big deal; rather, then rushing to write about it or profit from it. Take a moment, without distractions, to process it.”

“But”, Bilta replies as he slides the digital.laptop on the small wooden table back to him, “it just happened and it’s fresh in my mind–I want to remember what happened by blogging about it, yo.”

“I understand”, I respond as I roll my eyes, “but, you are still in shock; make a point to let it go from talking about it or reliving it, in your mind.  It is, very, much in your head; just, watch the digital.TV for a moment and take a breather.  You took the selfie with the fucking big shark, right?  Just post that on your digital.social and say something about crazy work trip.  Then, at some point, later, give some more details or information about the real story of what happened; don’t forget but don’t dwell.”

“I have so much to say.”

“You have so many emotions invested in the situation”, I respond as I turn my to digital.Bilfty2.1, “Bilfty2.1 is still crying and laying on the floor mumbling about cucumber wetsuit malfunctions and you want to just avoid that issue to talk about what happened to you.  Consider checking on him and relaxing; now, you are safe and secure.  Keep your head about you–don’t react so suddenly, in life; don’t be, so, impulsive, that you lose your head in the moment and do, or say, or type or write, something that you can’t take back.”

“I could write a draft, yo?”

“That’s a legit idea, Bilta”, I continue speaking as I shrug, “maybe, that will help you to process–but, consider if it is the right time to publish it to your sixteen digital.followers.  They are raving fans; maybe, take a moment to consider that they were not there and your admission of the shark.quest #5 is sensationalizing a very real, and dangerous, incident.  Write a draft to help; consider if sharing it is going to help others; are you looking for attention or helping others?”

“I think both, yo?”

“Are you sure? You don’t seem to be concerned about anyone but yourself–I think digital.Bilfty is now drinking hot sauce from the salsa bottle now so maybe you should check on him.  Make sure that your friends are alright before rushing off in a different direction to be the hero.”

“I want to be the hero, yo.”

“Fuck heroes, Bilta!”, I reply as I sigh, “they do nothing but help themselves; be the people’s hero.  Deal with digital.Bilfty2.1 and maybe give him a blanket and pillow or some shit.  It’s annoying listening to him cry and now I think he is trying to eat the plastic.bag of digital.papitas.  It’s embarassing to associate with you and him sometimes.”

“We can leave?”

“No”, I reply as I get up from my couch in my living room, “I don’t want my neighbors to see what is happening here–I am nothing if not my stellar reputation.”
