when your mind is a mess so is mine i can’t sleep


Few things make life better than good friends. Thank you, all of you, for last night. It was perfect.

After Mike and Dani and Bonnie left, I actually started to do REALLY WELL. Before, I was getting sixties. Then, suddenly, it was strike after strike… freaky, I’m telling you. In two and a half games, I got eleven (?) strikes, two turkeys. The last game turned into 171 points, the best I’ve ever done. Amusing, isn’t it?

And… “powwow,” Joey? C’mon…

Alternatively, perhaps at least one person is a “fraidy cat,” and won’t let himself or herself fall for the other, or even like the other, without witnessing signs of reciprocity. The two people then lead each other down the pathway of like, in a kind of low-key intertemporal seduction, sans the sex.

Now will saying “yes” get you in trouble at times? Will saying “yes” lead you to doing some foolish things? Yes it will. But don’t be afraid to be a fool. Remember, you cannot be both young and wise. Young people who pretend to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynics. Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics don’t learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying “yes” begins things. Saying “yes” is how things grow. Saying “yes” leads to knowledge. “Yes” is for young people. So for as long as you have the strength to, say “yes.”

And yet… for all of that, I find that if I had to choose… I preferred Thursday night.

  1. funny how things work.

    and should i be reading into these? i’m doing it already, but i wanted your permission, just in case. :p

    cynicism does blind us – good thing i’m not a cynic, i’m just a sarcastic gal with a really, really horrible sight ratio, and a pair of coke bottles to prove it.

    • The first one you should probably read into, yeah. The second? It’s more a reminder to myself than anything else. Easier to stick on on LJ than, e.g. the inside of my eyelid (right eyelid, of course, since my left is lazy…). They both are, really, come to think of it. *shrug*
