Another Kind of Solo


The Age of the Introvert Dash-Cam Soliloquy is now.

The best way to find out what your pet introvert is thinking is to install the cell’ ‘phone holder on the dashboard of their automobile and then leave them alone for a long time. Any time your introvert has a problem with someone, instead of talking about the problem with that person (which the little introvert would not do anyway), they can hook up their ‘phone and pretend indignance in front of the cell’ camera.

Just think: if they get upset at enough people, you can turn your pet introvert into a video logger (a.k.a. vlogger). You can put their lonely rants online. You can compile them under clever headings like, No Wally World Employee Will Ever Talk To Me That Condescendingly Again, or, This Is The Last Time I’ll Get Too Much Ice In My Super Sipper At The Drive Thru’, or, They’ll Think Twice About Crossing Me At The Gym ‘Cause They’re Gonna See This Video And Their Ears Will BURN AS IF TOUCHED BY HOLY WATER.

One other great benefit of this idea is that your little introvert will release some of the tension that typically builds up inside the less-than social brain. In the past, introverts with no outlet have blown their tops—or blown a gasket—or even “gone postal”. That’s no good. Give your pet a way to relieve themselves.

And of course don’t forget the encouragement. After they’ve let all of their anger out while yelling at the dashboard camera, make sure you save the recording and tell them, “Wow, you really took care of that situation.”

This is where I'm supposed to brag about how I've written seven novels, twelve screenplays, thousands of short stories, four self-help books, and one children's early-reader, but I'd rather stay humble. You can find out about things I've written or follow my barchive (web archive, aka 'blog) at or follow me on twitter @kurt_gailey. I love sports and music and books, so if you're an athlete or in a band or you're a writer, give me a follow and I'll most likely follow you back. I've even been known to promote other people's projects.
