Yesterday was a bit of an oddity. While I was working I saw this guy walking down the street and he looked familiar. I wasn’t sure but I was like whatever and just yelled out a name. He turned around and indeed it was him. Used to work with him over 10 years ago in another suburb of the city. We exchanged numbers and he enthusiastically wanted to meet up the next day. Called him and texted him today and nothing. Not disappointed cause my expectations are low. Possibly he’s just busy or something. We’ll see and whatever.
Later that day a friend calls me for a favour. Haven’t really seen him in a year. I don’t turn down a favour cause I don’t know. Guess I’m just a loyal son of bitch. Got to chatting and after he tells me that I “think too much.” Isn’t thinking what separates us from the rest of the animal kingdom. Thinking is what brought us to the world we live in even though some of it is shit. I wouldn’t be writing this and you wouldn’t be reading this if it weren’t for thinking. Without thinking you’re just a droid who just follows what is in your environment. A sheep. Without thinking there is hardly a chance at seeing the truth but I guess if the truth is potentially damaging to the ego then thinking would be detrimental to many. It’s an ego based existence that most strive for.
Same night a friend I haven’t seen or heard of in a couple years dropped by. Last time I saw him he was not in the best state. Lost his fortune, his friends and most of his ego. I always had a feeling he would come around cause he dropped his ego and was searching for something else. He was the envy of most people in his early 20’s. Millionaire, hot girlfriend and luxury cars. It got to him though after a while. Everyone treated him different and he hated it. Boohoo some would say. Maybe. But he’s just like the rest of us. A person with his own battles looking for a solution. This guy cracks me up sometimes cause he’s so open about things. He’s been trying to have kids but he tells me his sperm is deformed. He’s been a chronic pothead for 20 years, his health is shit. He’s 5’8 and is 205 pounds and not much of it is muscle.
Tonight I’m just wining and swining. Wine and swine go so well together. People who don’t think are just obsessed with their survival and enhancing it. Blindly perpetuating the species by producing pollution and teaching them how to continue the cycle of consuming, shitting and pissing. “That’s life.” F off.
And screw you to the recent influx of fake likers who are attention whores and also to the ones who are trying to get people to go to their blogs to “make money blogging.” Go make money selling yourself on the street.
