The Perfect World

My perfect world
"In a perfect world" ..............

A phrase many of us use to deal with the frustrations of a world that constantly conspires to work against us.  I have used it myself on occasion.  Like so many blanket statements, the term does not mean "a perfect world" for all.  As it stands, it is used from a personal perspective without regard for anyone else's take.   Using it drops us into a fantasy world for a second.  In order for all of us to agree on the perfect world, we would have to collectively drop 20 or so IQ points and join the Republican Party.  Of course, dropping 30 points would make the perfect world according to the Koch Brothers easier to achieve.  But I refuse to become a total drooler.

Once again, my mind decided to go its own way.  I  had every intention of retaining control of this post, but well, uh, I have failed to do so.  Five or so sentences into it, my contempt for the political Right got the better of me.  In a perfect world, this would not happen.......

Thankfully, I do not reside in a perfect world.

Keep it 'tween the ditches ..........................................................

Mike: I am so very glad you are posting again!!! Thank you for the comment on my post. I had thought you were no longer indulging in nicotine. I assume however you are in a better state of it than me at the moment. I am working to give up my damn pipes and I am finding nothing but failure. Any advice would be appreciated.

Pipe Tobacco - Like you I have not been able to kick that monkey off my back. And like you, I have feelings of guilt and shame. There is no defense for smoking other than I like it.

mohaverat - In my perfect world, I would be 25 forever and not as numb as I was when I was really 25. And thanks, I am glad you like my jibber jabber.

Ol'Buzzard - Now that I think about it, maybe my perfect world would be to switch places with Tom Brady.

The Blog Fodder - And thanks for swinging by here. Your blog ( read your persona) has always mystified me. The journey your life must have made to end up in the Ukraine had to be some interesting.
