Hey, it was broke when I got there.
Times they do change.
Look at this photo of me receiving the ‘stink eye’.
I doubt there is a married guy out there who has not seen some version of this.
I’m not by any means saying I don’t deserve this treatment, but to document it is rare! There it is,, just in case you have never seen it. I just happened to have a camera nearby and I documented this rarity for your viewing pleasure.
OK, now you’re wondering what I did to deserve this in the first place. As you married guys know, I did ab-so-fucking-lutly nothing to deserve this! Nope, didn’t fart, just sittin here mindin my own gotdam business.
And WHAM,, stink-eye.
It’s OK tho,, as always, we worked thru it in no time.
Turns out I am not the asshole I thought I was. For now.
On a more somber note, I had to do something today I never done before.
I have a friend/cousin-inlaw who has been battling the big C for a couple years now. He was just told he has 4-6 weeks before he checks out.
I needed to phone him up and chat but what the fuck do I say?
It has been about 25 years since we hung out but I felt we were close.
So I got him on the phone not knowing what I should say.
I thought it was awkward for me, till I began to think about his side of the conversation. I cannot imagine being in his spot.
We had a nice conversation, as it could be. I want to phone him back again in about a week.
As I/we get older It become apparent we will have to deal with death more than we want to. I have tried to avoid it all my life, but it is all around me lately.
If my next post is not more upbeat, someone should come by and slap all the shit outa me.
And that goes especially for the dipshit who keeps leaving stupid comments!
I hope I didn’t brain my damage
