What can YOU say in six sentences?
Hey, how come nobody's saying anything? Say it!
I miss my journals, the ones AG burned. I think I should give the $200 Walmart gift card my dad gave me for Christmas to the homeless man I see on the corner of Beltway 8 and Hammerly every morning. I can't stop coughing. My right SI joint hurts, chronically it seems, but I still roll around on the floor with my kids; it takes longer to get back up. I finally have a butt after almost a decade of climbing twenty-five stairs at least eight times a day. I didn't shower today. I wonder how what's-her-face is doing since her double mastectomy/reconstruction four days ago. I haven't mailed my Christmas cards yet and just this moment remembered several people I forgot to put on my list. I have a mad love for my four year-old, so deep. Everyone is asleep here but me. Christmas lights are still on. The Benadryl will kick in soon. It rained today. Sometimes I think I'm in love with him.
No, I simply cannot. But I can THINK IT.
Ya, right! Homeland Security would have my ass SO FAST....
Sorry, this airplane isn't going DOWN yet ...
would it be wrong to quote "Snakes On A Plane" at this MF moment? if so... nevermind... ;)
Rob, that's only three sentences. Say what you really mean.
I will never get to hear the women who've broken my heart explain how they could do me like that. I will never do the same for those whose hearts I've broken. Love is not a choice.
Reagan was a shitty president. Communism died because of its own excesses, not our military spending. The war in Iraq was not a result of bad intelligence, but rather the willful choices of batshit assholes who misjudged every last thing about it, except for the gullible malleability of the majority of the American public.
Conventional wisdom is about 84% bullshit. Judging from the results, the best and the brightest are neither. First impressions are often way off.
Religion is not the root of all evil. Money is not the root of all evil. Humanity is not curable, but humans are.
Technology and social media really are impairing our ability to think clearly, but in the end it's on us, because we can always walk away. Rediscovering concentration could save us as individuals and as a culture many, many problems, but we won't choose to do so. Distraction is easier. Ease is poison.
Not everyone is a hypocrite, and not everyone lies. That's what makes those of us who do lie such assholes.
Writing helps. Music helps. People who are decent and kind and considerate help. Nature at large reflects us as humans in nearly every particular, from the cycle of life/death/reuse to mating patterns to dominance and submission. Our actions and choices reflect our values; our rationalizations reflect our weaknesses. I praise God, but that doesn't mean I think you have to.
Holy cow! Does Bill know how to SAY IT, or what? Outstanding!!!
Does unconventional wisdom make up the other 16% of the bullshit?
Fantastic Bill! Agree word to word! Especially the parts abt conventional wisdom and First Impressions and whole lot of the last para!
