Such is existence....

Does it take any real skill to exist? In my case the answer would most likely be no. For every day I awake to find that the sun has come up yet again, I have to pee yet again, and another day of work is upon me. Existing isn't hard at all. What is hard is trying to make a difference in the world. Now everyone step back and chill the fuck out for a minute, this isn't some liberal pinko political philosophy lesson. I am not philosophical to begin with so I would never claim to have a philosophy nor the ability to philosophize (may have just invented a word there). By difference I mean the little stuff. Getting my daughter to actually use the potty instead of the diaper. Landing the concept of kicking the ball to Daddy versus picking it up and handing it to me. Those types of things...those are the hard things, even though they are enjoyable at times. I ain't out to change the world like I was when I graduated college. I had dreams of grandeur that I would have an incredible impact on the world, change things for the better. My impact on this world can be compared to a tick farting in a wind storm.

Let the smarts figure out and change the world...they are the ones that believe they can do it, whether they are qualified to do it or not. I'll keep meandering through life and take the days one at a time. One day, maybe if I am lucky, I'll retire and move north, get out of the worlds way and quietly exist until it's time to take the dirt nap.

One of those weeks, huh? We're all just tick farts, I guess. Sucks to be aware of that too often, though.

I have all kinds of extra commie liberal pinko lying around here if you want some. I don't think I'll ever run out.

Always look on the bright side of life.

One of those weeks for sure. It is a big world and feeling like you have a spot in it is overwhelming at best. Could be worse I spose...

The bright side of life is the way to go really (consider me giving a whistle).

As for the liberal point of view...I dn't know where I stand these days. I know the conservatives make my blood boil, however the liberals sound like a bunch a freakin whiners. I guess I will continue to exist somewhere in the middle where that is. Like I said..no idea where my place in the world is for now.

I think I will go for "ashes to ashes, dust to dust" method myself. why give the worms the satisfaction.
