“When you’ve dug a hole so deep you can’t find a way out. Fill it with blood, sweat and tears and swim your way to the top.”
You hear some pretty strange things while checking people out. If I ever held any hope for the future of mankind, well…
“Last night, the internet was down for over 30 minutes. I mean, the world could have ended and I would never have known about it.” – A 17 year old co-worker talking to another employee.
“I’m tired of being broke all the time.” She tweeted from her $2000 phone. – a twenty something wife talking to her friend while waiting in line to purchase $300 dollar shoes.
“The lines are always so long in this store and I refuse to use the self-checkout. I don’t work for this store. Next time, I’ll just order it from Amazon.” – A 60 year old woman talking to her husband.
There aint no way of knowing until you bite in to them.
So here’s the deal youngens. We can get on our fangled up google tablet thingies and make plans til we’re blue in the face. We can make preparations until all those spreadsheets and documents and slide shows come falling out our asses. But there comes a time when you just got to quit planning and start doing. There’s a reason we aint all rich and famous. That’s cause nobody can tell what’s going to happen in the future. Although, Norma Claire, my great aunt on my mother’s side was said to have a touch of the black arts running through her blood. But she didn’t see that horse bucking her off onto her head so I guess when it comes right down to it, she couldn’t see the future either.
So like I was saying, just stop diddly squatting around and start acting. You’ll thank me for it one day.
Till next time friends.
It’s not owed to us. We didn’t win some contest where we can claim it as a prize. It’s a gift…a chance to start over. Don’t worry about what happened yesterday. We can’t call for a redo. All we can do is learn from it and move on.
The north wind freezes fields and rivers
Drifts across roads to seal the town
Skin cracks inside ice covered gloves
Vick’s rubbed onto croupy chests
Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day
Fireplace surrounded by, family, lovers and friends
Ice skating, snowball fights, sleigh rides
Hot chocolate, red noses and hugs
