They say be careful what you ask for… I say ‘cool’
It goes to reason if you ask for some unsavory incident to happen to someone you’re angry with, or for the weather to perform some extreme strange act because you’re uncomfortable – and it happens! Logic has it that if you ask for good things to happen that they too will!
So go ahead, wish for fantastic things – and yes, be careful about your wishing… please make sure it’s something you really want to happen ’cause the consequence of living with something that you wished for, and it wasn’t what you really wanted…
Not only are you stuck with those consequences, but you totally wasted a perfectly good wish on something stupid!
See this? Do you see this face… well, of course you don’t see my face, but if you did you would know that it is NOT a happy face, in fact it’s a face shuffling between sadness, frustration, anger, and contumacity (see Extraneous Articulations)
It is Monday – the one day a week that I get to connect with Michael via e-mail, the one day a week I get to kinda-sorta feel him with me. Yea, it’s weird, but hey, if you didn’t expect a little weird from me, you wouldn’t be reading this…
Anyways, here it is mid afternoon, and I have still not received an email from the boy.
I know, I know, there is plenty of time left to the day, there is plenty of time left for him to connect – but I don’t want to wait! I want to talk to him NOW! Dang-it!
Oh well, I suppose I really have no choice in the matter. I will just sit here and pass the time the best I can. Hopefully there is nothing wrong that is preventing him from getting on-line this week. That is really why I’m concerned – it’s the dadgum-dadgum unknown, that and I miss him, but more of that than anything.
To the world… I love you boy, I know you can’t read this, but the world can, and for a brief moment in time, someone is spreading that love just by reading this…
A lot has happened in the last couple of months. In six weeks I’ve had three major life events happen. Now that it’s over I feel like I can get back to normal – except that some ‘volunteer’ was assigned to inspect whether I’m doing a good job taking care of my brother and his money. “Clean up, get ready to talk to this guy,” I tell them. I should have known better.
When I got there, I was surprised by the mess, though they did clean up, it was still messy. On top of that, I discovered a roach problem that I didn’t know existed – amazing how much can go down the toilet in two months.
Anywho, this guy couldn’t get over the fact that my other brother had really bad teeth. ‘Uh, who are you here to inspect?’
The roaches I could understand, but seriously, as soon as I found out, we took care of it – I get it, that one was my fault. I didn’t think about it because they’ve never had roaches before. How could I know. Yea, I should have visited sooner – refer to first paragraph. I visited as soon as I had more than five minutes. Again – taken care of.
So this volunteer guy wants to put my brother in group jail, because taking away his independence is a better solution than saying ‘hey, I’ll give you a month, if it’s not taken care of I’ll take it to the judge.’ Actually, I only needed a week.
So, I face the judge to plea for my brothers’ freedom. Really, if you don’t think I’m doing right by him fine, let someone else handle his finances, but don’t take away his independence just because he needs a little help taking care of himself – it’s just not right!
