...and was whisked back to the 3rd grade... my love for Robin S, as sure a thing as any 3rd grader can experience. I was thrilled when we were asked to stay a few minutes after school to clean the blackboards. I remember as he stepped up onto the piano bench to reach the top of the boards, I noticed he was wearing the absolutely most heinous pair of Toughskins... and like that, it was over.
1) That if I drive a different vehicle to work, the people coming to my class will not enter, even though the large glass doors are unlocked, and the lights are on... they will then be amazed when I invite them in after 10 or so minutes of private amusement. I would be lying if I said this cartoon did not flash through my mind...
2) That if an affair is had, it's entirely the woman's fault, thanks to Eve. In light of the latest JFK affair revelations, it was pointed out to me that the 19 yr-old woman was solely to blame for the 40 yr-old, most powerful man in the world, deciding to stray. After all, she was a grown-up and should have known better... and, she is temptation. A man is helpless and blameless in the face of temptation. The only reason he was a dirt bag was because he was a Democrat.
My brain is not as plastic as I would like, or maybe is still too plastic, I don't know. I updated my Firefox a couple of days ago... they put my damn bookmark tag way on the other side!! Thus causing my bookmark droplist to open in a completely different spot. I misclicked 700 times, but kept breathing, knowing my old brain would adapt... just keep clicking, just keep clicking... I was getting better. I was rewiring... and then this morning, the damn tab is nearly back to its orginal location!!! At first I was glad, thinking yay, no more spazzing! But NOOOOO!!! My brain had already adapted more than I realized and now this seems effed up!WHY!?!?!
Daily changes will either keep my brain young and springy, or it will explode.
It's been a week... I realized I could use a laugh... one of those laughs where tears and snot stream down your face and you instantly feel the weight of the world peeled away, and you're 10 years younger... You know, like Epsom salts for the spirit.
