Let’s be honest; even a man who always seems to have it all together cracks under pressure every now and then. And as perfect as I am (at least as far as perfection goes in my own warped out mind), I am no exception to the rule.
Having said that, I think I will take a short moment to ask one burning question that many people ask in their every day lives:
“What the #&$%@!?”
“What the #&$%@!” did I do to deserve getting hit in the forehead with one of Karma’s mini bowling balls?
- “What the #&$%@!” happened to the Plan B that I usually keep in my back pocket?
- “What the #&$%@!” am I going to do to get myself out of this deep a$$ pothole that I managed to fall into?
Well, I asked the one burning question like I said. I just happened to ask it in three different variations. Why? Because I can. “What the #&$%@!” are you going to do about it?
Listen, everyone is only human. Well, maybe not the chick that lives on the corner of my street. I don’t know what she is, but I know it’s not human. Have you seen her??? Oh wait, that’s a story for another time.
My point is no one is immune to the pitfalls of life. In fact, if we didn’t have sh*t to deal with, how would we know what we could handle? It’s like going out on a bad date. In your heart you know the date is going to be a bust, but you still have to endure the bad company, bad conversation, bad food and bad hygiene in order to know what you don’t like and what you hope to expect out of the next date who is anyone but the person you lowered your standards for in the first damn place.
Oh, but if only things were as simple as a bad date. You can stand up a bad date. You can walk out on a bad date. You can even throw your drink in a bad date’s face. But life, my friends, is something a little more funky than a simple bad date. In fact, sometimes life can be a big pile of sh*t. However as stinky as that sh*t may be, life is also a wheel. What’s down today is up tomorrow. The hard part is getting through the day. Lucky for us all 90% of any effort is getting started.
