How to Play Well With Others

Leave a comment

I remember way back when I was a wee child in grade school. I couldn’t wait to grow up so I could be like the older kids who were all grown up and responsible, and didn’t have to worry about all those childish things. The big adult kids I was talking about were those that were in Junior High School (nowadays they’re called Middle School). Funny thing was, when I got to Junior High School, nothing changed. So I looked ahead and couldn’t wait to get into High School where all the kids there were adults and did adult things, and didn’t fight and carry on like children. So you won’t be surprised to learn that when I made it to High School, it was the same. So continuing the charade, I couldn’t wait to graduate high school and get out into the world. Certainly there is where all the adults were. Business men and business women who knew how to conduct their affairs with proper attitudes, and would never call anyone names like “big, fat, fucking bitch,” “fat ass,” and the like.

Are you surprised that I never found it?

He Slipped and Fell

I’m sure by now you’ve all heard about the terrible accident with the cruise ship off Italy’s coast. It’s very sad that so many lives were lost because of this. It’s probably one of the main reasons you’ll never see me on a cruise anywhere. Maybe it’s because I don’t trust the people in charge. Maybe it’s because it’s just entirely unhealthy to have that many people living in such close quarters without anywhere to go except for in each other’s faces. Before this tragedy, my initial reason for never wanting to go on a cruise was because every time you turned around, they were reporting that yet another cruise ship in the Caribbean, in the Atlantic, in the Pacific, in the Indian Ocean, in the Baltic, or wherever was inundated by some bacterial illness that had almost everyone on board puking for the remainder of the trip. Or someone fell overboard (or was pushed?) in the night and was never seen again.
