“I admire determination. Here’s an instance where determination is both impressive . . . and funny.”—Tim Bayer
Won Over By Reality
By Tim Bayer
BRIGHTON New York—(Weekly Hubris)—December 2019—The wind had blown the empty trash-toter to the neighbors’ house. The steps for reinstating the status quo seemed simple enough: 1) Grab the toter; 2) Roll it back home.
But there was the unseen adversary, an invisible but formidable foe.
I admire determination. Here is an instance where determination is both impressive . . . and funny.
Tim Bayer, Webmaster, and Assistant Editor of Weekly Hubris, was born and brought up in Webster, New York. He attended St. Bonaventure University, earning a BS in Computer Science, and then worked in the hi-tech world. In 2002 he turned his creative energies to product development and video production with the release of his first independently produced products. When the demand for web site design and freelance writing increased, he once again switched skill sets . . . to writing and web work. An avid or, to be more accurate, rabid, disc golfer, he may often be found chasing plastic while in pursuit of the perfect round on a disc golf course, or designing and developing disc golf products for Demogrid.com. He says he tries to find the humor hidden in everyday experiences, because, “life is too important to be taken seriously.” (Author photo by Tim Bayer. Author Head Shot Augment: René Laanen.)
