Default I'm not such a smart boy, after all


A quarter past six in the a.m. and I am
doin' what I can to start the day with
a full stomach (done) and an empty
bowel (almost done).

The hot water heater has been dead for more
than a month now.
The refrigerator is giving up it's ghost
this morning.

And me- I got some cash for the
next week due rent but not enough
to keep fed well.

Well that ain't a big deal when compared to:
1. Having paid my taxes last week
2. Being able to move about under my own steam
3. And my wife- my wife being in love with me


Man- I sure screwed up this life.

Hope you are doing better.

Hell, Nick.

I figure, as long as a man has #2 (on your list, not the activity you are currently undertaking) and #3, he's doing alright.

When it comes right down to it, our health and love are all that're important, anyway.
