WEAPON OF SELF DESTRUCTION

I woke up today determined not to follow through with a single plan. So far I have stuck to my guns and nothing much has happened. I read a post encouraging us bloggers to continue incorporating world events when we post about our day to day lives. Whoever posted that “attaboy” has never read my page. I don’t have much to say about goin’s on in this country or this world coz, for the most part, it’s only a peripheral concern at best for the folks w/ whom I communicate and deal. Oh, I’ve heard some of them refer to Syria, Egypt, The Government Shutdown, Obamacare, The Debt Ceiling…but only when they want attention diverted from them bein’ basically responsible for their problems.

Me, I know my problems are basically of my own making and, if my life is gonna change, then I’m gonna half to take action. Some folks call it “doin’ the next right thing.” Me, I call it “do somethin’ even if it’s wrong.” And that’s why I decided to do nothin’ today….coz nothin’ is exactly the wrong thing to do and I know it.

I know it. And, like most moments of brilliant self-awareness, it does nothin’ but reinforce my genius for doin’ the exact wrong thing for exactly the wrong reason.

It’s like goin’ into Iraq all over again.
