Synergy soup, or should I say soup with synergy. I know, you’re wondering what the heck I’m talking about. Well, I haven’t been feeling tip top these past couple of weeks, hence the lack of blog posts for which I apologise. However, I’ve noticed that these days when I’m not feeling too good the TV goes on which is not a good move in my book.
Don’t get me wrong, I think TV can be interesting to watch at times, after all, there are things we would never get to see or hear if it wasn’t for that screen attached to the wall. But, and this is what really gets to me, there is so much blandness and complete nonsense on there, and to make it worse, I have sat and watched it!!
An example is a program where four people each take turn to cook a meal in their own homes and are then scored by the other three on how well they thought the meal had turned out. It’s called something like ‘Come Eat With Me’ or similar. Anyway, as I settled down to the one episode I managed to sit through before rigamortis set in, there was a young lady who after finishing her meal was asked what she thought of it, without letting any of the other contestants know. Her reply was, ‘The soup had no synergy’.
What does that mean, the soup had no synergy? If she had said it was lacking in seasoning, taste, flavour or even cold, I could have understood, but lack of synergy? Maybe I’m getting older and just don’t understand the younger generation and their descriptions. If I were a young guy now and was on my first date with that young lady and she had said that about the soup, I think I would have gone home there and then! If the soup had no synergy then I’d hate to think what I’d be lacking in!!! It’s good to be back and moaning again.
