It might be time to take a break from reality…

I’ve bought the normal amount of toilet paper because my bathroom has a bidet.

Bidets are really common in both Puerto Rico and Europe, and late last year I joked about starting a bidet business to bring them to the mainland USA.

After the Hong Kong protests and advancing government use of facial recognition, I thought it would be interesting to start a mask company.

You could have them for every occasion– privacy, smoke grenades… and even pandemics.

Joe’s Bidets and Face-Masks INC (Free face mask with every bidet) never materialized.

Talk about missed opportunities.

But it’s okay because I’m not sure I’d do so hot running a business like that. And let’s be honest, I’d probably have sourced my masks from China.

No, instead I like to daydream. Escape this world for something a little further advanced, a little bit more futuristic.

Maybe someplace with better government, more innovation, where you can live on an artificial floating island that moves to different ports throughout the year.

The problem is my daydreams have a life of their own.

I start imagining it, and the next thing you know there are three different legal systems and a sexual-predator business mogul accused of murder.

See I’m quarantined here in my apartment in Puerto Rico, and as I start drifting off in my hammock while staring out over the ocean from my roof-deck, I start thinking about the what-ifs.

What if you could detach your little island from your city, state, or country and just float away?

“Nope. Not dealing with these people. I’m out.”

I’d imagine that’s an option a lot of people are wishing they had right now.

And then you could link up with whoever you want, and rule your own society.

A boy can dream.

But anyway I ended up writing it all down (I mean after you sink so many hours into inventing a new universe, you might as well).

There’s prison islands, floating cities, and corporate-cult governments… okay so I guess the future isn’t utopia either.

I also recorded each episode if you’d rather listen to it on Spotify or right here on my website at the top of each episode.

So take a break from reality. And if you’re feeling really social, comment with your own daydreams of a better world.
