One: How three people from my childhood all just died within a week of each other. WTH???
Two: How certain laws are so deviously designed to keep large segments of this population down... permanently.
Three: How it always falls to us to keep those tedious folks who procrastinate— honest and to remind them to live up to their word.
Four: How some friends take these extended sabbaticals and then you never hear from them again.
Five. How doing someone a favor, being in someone’s corner, or a constant source of support doesn’t necessarily manifest in any form of reciprocation.
Six: How several years of making a concerted effort can render absolutely no positive result.
Seven: How people can deny and lie continuously and somehow arrogantly believe they won’t be discovered. Right, A-Rod?
Eight: How willpower isn’t a sometime concept, but a perpetual muscle to be tested and flexed incessantly.
Nine: How people have taken and perhaps always will take kindness for weakness, and how loyalty seems to have gone the way of the dinosaur, the Edsel… and good ole B&W TV.
Ten: How snatching JOY becomes very much necessary, because the bastards and mofos of this world will always try their level best to steal your JOY away from you (& yo quasi-happy azz).
Just sayin’, yo.
