Be Afraid... Don't Be Very

pirate hobbled in this morning with some sort of orange gourd strapped
over one of his eyes.
I asked him, “What's that on your face?
me pumpkin patch!
a list of all the things you hate about yourself, you
know, the way you drive, the way you talk before thinking, wait this
should really be in list form because it will get kind of long, so it
you drive (sometimes)
that you don't have enough money
way you talk before thinking (sometimes)
that look you're
giving me right now
Now do a list of all
the things you hate about others, you know...
the way they drive (sometimes)
they have too much money
what they say (sometimes)
look they give you
Take the list about
you and make it about them and take the list about them and make it
You and them. Them and you.
I was a kid, I used to say “I hate
(something) and my mom would say, “Don't waste your hate.
implied that hate was valuable, but I don't think that's what she meant.
of those things you listed about you or them is worth the hate. Imagine
you are on your deathbed...
Wait a second,
spellcheck recognizes “
as a thing but not Arrgh? Deathbed? Can you go into a Bed Bath
Beyond store and buy a deathbed?!? Certainly a deathbed would satisfy
two of the three conditions of Bed Bath & Beyond as both a bed
the launchpad to the beyond. Somebody famous recently died in the bath.
Does that make it a deathbath? Spellcheck says no.
you're on your deathbed or in your deathbath. Do you think you will
really care how much money you had compared to somebody else? Or how
you rated as a driver?
people on their
brand new deathbeds about life regrets, and most people had regrets
relating to love and relationships and connections.
were dying for more love, not for more hate.
you are dying, you will no longer be afraid. Fear drives hate. Stop
being afraid now. Stop hating.

at night when deliriousness meets the mattress, my better half and I
It's never the same, almost never
planned, usually something
started by me but the best stuff starts without me and I just twist it
into some origami of ridiculousness. I have no improv training and
hardly any theater experience except for all these years of goofiness.
I play things straight, and she couldn't be straighter. I
laugh when she does, and last night I couldn't stop laughing.
it was about doesn't matter. It really doesn't. It's about the quick
back and forth more than anything. It's a special language.
best health care, mental health care, and life care is a great loving,
understanding, and over-the-top comedic relationship.
just wish more people had someone to get goofy with and laugh until it

the devastation of Hurricane Michael, it is interesting to learn that
Florida Building Codes say Michael took a wrong turn.
Florida Building Code says different parts of Florida have different
wind speed requirements. The Florida Keys might have to withstand 180
mph wind gusts. Miami only has to withstand 160 mph wind gusts. And
Mexico Beach only has to withstand 130 mph winds. Michael got up to 155
mph. Still, most of the damage occurred to older structures.
Michael may have “damaged” the statue
of Nathaniel Greene
in Savannah, Georgia by putting googly eyes on it. Savannah police are
looking for whoever vandal-eyed the statue or any eye-witnesses.

had rain, misty rain, all-out downpours, and drizzle.
week ago I heard Minnesota soybean and corn farmers needed a clear day
to harvest the crops.
They have not had it. It
hasn't rained all the time, but there also hasn't been a clear day to
dry up muddy fields.
Climate change maps show a
wetter Minnesota -- a crop damaging, business and home damaging wet.

on his way to Minnesota of all places, this happened. Toilet paper was
stuck to President Trump's shoe on his way up the stairs to Air Force
Yet the Internet thinks it was the
Constitution that was stuck to his shoe. Or his tax return. Or the New
York Times investigation
into the half billion dollars Fred
Trump put in his son Donald's name to avoid taxes. Or else TP stands
for trade partnerships.
president will have a tough act to follow.
