Greetings to my fellow carbon based life forms! Day going good so far? If it isn’t, look at it this way: it’s half way done. Some days are always too short, never enough time to ‘do all the nothing’ you want to. That’s how I feel every day.
I work six days a week, dealing with what I like to call ‘the dregs of humanity’. Now, it’s not always bad. I work basically in customer service in two jobs. There are good people and there are bad people. But it’s always the bad experiences that stick in our memory, like gum in our hair. I don’t like to be unhappy; I’m not even an unhappy person naturally. Just sometimes, life gives you lemons to make lemonade, and right now, I’ve got a couple of gallons to go around.
Maybe, I should take a page out of Calvin’s book (Calvin & Hobbes): “When life gives you lemons, you sling ’em back and add a few of your own.” I am trying to do that. I’ll get into details on that score some other time.
But, who am I? Maybe the best way to describe myself is to use certain characters from pop culture. I have the wicked snark of Loki; the desire for vengeance like Cersei (when I’m thoroughly roused); and the loyalty of Sam Gamgee. Got a picture? Oh, wait… that’s the picture. Shows my parents have a sense of humor. In other words: you treat me right and are a friend to me, I’ll be a friend to you. Mess with me, and you’re in a world of hurt!
So, how’s your day looking now? Still ‘meh’? Well, hopefully you’re a ‘glass half full’ type of person. I’m more a ‘glass is always occupied’ type person. It’s either half empty, or half full.
And on that note, it’s been real!
