Arguing With Myself

Earlier today I was mousing my way down Facebook Lane and not paying much attention to the meme's that passed by.  I must  have been distracted or just deep into my FB Daze earlier than usual.  Suddenly I stopped my scrolling.  It dawned on me that it was nothing but muscle memory that had me wandering aimlessly around Facebook at 5:30 in the morning.

I began to internalize and an argument with myself broke out about me always being sucked into useless endeavors that had no real importance in the scheme that was my life.  Yeah, I began to give myself Hell. Then, totally out of character for me, I stopped arguing with myself.  I realized, not only was I deep into another round of useless mental masturbation, now I wanted to argue with myself the merits of said useless endeavor.

"Screw this, I'm taking Maggie over to Mary's Woods, sparkin up a doob while I stretch our legs and forget Facebook even exists, if only for a brief moment or two."

Smart choice.  Wake n Bake to the rescue again.

I wonder why I do facebook. Sooner or later there will be some posting that just twist me the wrong way.

I can understand the need to get away from FaceBook. The comments on some of the newsfeeds..... make me sincerely worry for humanity a lot of the time (and my only access is by peeking at my wife’s account).

The idea of smoking in the morning sounds quite pleasant. But then again, my never having tried the greener leaf, I have no real understanding I guess. I always image that to being akin to drinking beer at breakfast at deer camp.... and wonder if you would feel drunk and sloshy by 10 am and want to nap? Some day or night... maybe I will eventually get to try it and finally know what it is like.

But until that day, I can still say I think about having some pipe tobacco in one of my pipes every morning. I have now resisted for, let’s see.... very close to 30 months..... but I still consider plunging back in.

What is Face Book?

It is.... a chimeric mix of interesting or odd things from family.... and the devil itself from horrendous political and social fighting. :)
