Lessons Learned

Things I learned tonight:

1. Don't eat grilled cheese sandwiches
2. Don't eat tater tots.
3. Don't eat turtle pie.
4. If you do eat any of the above, don't eat them all at the same meal.
5. If you do eat them all in the same meal, don't run immediately afterwards.
6. If you're going to run immediately after eating such a meal, don't try following someone that is twice as fast as you.
7. Speed bumps are armed and dangerous, and invisible in the dark.
8. Even fat, old men feel better after running for an hour, everyone should do it every day.

Blank Slate

My eyes open slowly as the dusty sunlight creeps through my bedroom curtains.
The warmth of the rising sun snuggles with me as I come into conciousness.
My life is clear and fresh and new.
What shall I make of it?
Shall I get out of bed?
Shall I roll over and call in sick, and go to the movies?
Shall I find a new job?
Shall I find a wife?
Shall I write a song, and become a rock star?
Shall I write a screenplay, and win an Oscar?
Shall I hike to the top of a mountain?
Shall I move to the coast?
Shall I move to Europe?
It's good to know that the possibilities are limitless.
But, I think I'll just get up and go to work.
