Introspection

When I came across this photo I thought, "Yeah bud, I know how you feel. Been there, done that."

Some days I wake up and I just can't seem to dislodge my head from my ass all day. Wake up inserted hard and go to bed with the same shitty outlook. I sometimes wonder if others start their days like this. Is it me? Or do we all have days like this?

Hmm.

Nevermind the forest. When I find my vision blocked in such a manner, I can't even see the trees. Taking Life with philosophical resignation is not on today's menu. No sirree. I am determined to have myself a wonderfully shitty day.

So I get up and look for a cat to kick. Leave the seat up, leave the bed unmade, and lay my plans to bring gloom and disaster to my day. And like a exclamation point to my carefully planned negative getaway, I step on a cat killed woodsie creature trophy crumpled and bloody at the front door. "Just Bleepin great."

My shoulders droop and a disgusted sigh escapes as tiny varmit bones crunch under my flip flops. Like a dead man walking, I slowly shuffle down the drive to fire up the truck that will deliver me to the day's Hell.

Be careful what you wish for.

Nice stuff CRUM. Been seeing you around BF, never really saw you much before the last few weeks. You seem like a pretty bright guy. Thanks for the words on my blog, I appreciate it.

I don't remember ever having that bad of a day. I have had moments like that but they always passed.

I do however know lots of people who walk around like that. I'll add you to my list if you wish. 8>)
