FROM PM TO AM
It's like 4 in the morning and I'm still up - don't ask.
Strange thoughts and revelations come to a man who's up this late, as I learned tonight. Humor me; I'll share some of them with you.
1. Left-handers rule
As much as it galls me to admit it, particularly because I'm right-handed, there's something special about left-handers. I never did meet one that didn't have something special about them. Not to take anything away from us right-handers though. The left-handed brain is an intricate piece of work, as I grudgingly came to realize.
2. Yes? No? Maybe?
I've been lying to myself all these years that I've had bad luck in relationships. The real reason is that I'm reluctant to commit. [I could've told you that, punk, I can hear CK saying right now.] Hopefully with that realization will come reformation.
3. O.J. did it.
4. Losing Battle?
There will always be unrest in the Middle East, unfortunately. Not to say we shouldn't seek a resolution for peace though.
The Israelis & Arabs, to muddle them into 2 groups, are like step-brothers. As a matter of fact, they are step-brothers according to the Good Book; each one wants what they think is rightfully theirs.
5. Uncle Sam.
Let's face it, petroleum prices will never go back down. Uncle Sam is smart though. Think about it:
Something causes the gas prices to spike up by $1.50 within days. Naturally, people raise hell over it, so Uncle Sam 'intensifies' his efforts to bring the prices down, and he does. Only they won't be down by $1.50; more like $1.20. Everyone can breathe again now, but gas is still $0.30 pricier.
6. "Hold the fries, please."
[Before someone accuses me of plagiarism, I have to admit that I'm paraphrasing this from a Readers Digest.]
An American goes to Korea on vacation and, as he's taking in the sights, he stumbles across an impressive-looking state-of-the-art stadium. So taken aback is he by it that he starts asking anyone and everyone more about it but no one would pay him any mind - except one dude.
"How many people can that stadium hold?" he asks dude.
"70,000 Korean," dude said, "But only 50,000 American!"
I've gained like 20 pounds over the years while over here. I always weighed too little but damn! Not any more!
7. I need to go to bed.
