im not the smartest man

but i try

im not the handsomest or tallest.

i dont have the magicest mighty sword or fastest car.

but i have an internet connection and electricity and if teenage russian hackerboys have taught us anything its that sometimes thats all you need to make a difference.

sometimes i get low. im human. and sometimes i get very high. no comment.

i get high in the weirdest ways. i can watch a movie with a pretty girl or i can watch a simpsons episode all by my lonesome.

sometimes just the whiff of a eucalyptus will trigger a long lost memory and it will cause a grin from ear to ear, which heath ledger rip has shown can be quite scary.

and like his character because im somewhat insane i can be low and high sometimes in the same hour.

last night i came home, heated up some Just Chicken from trader joes, doused it with jack daniels bbq sauce and nuked a large bowl of Glory collard greens and turned on the macbook.

im a bachelor. thats as close to cooking as it gets in this house. in two days the maid will find it in my dresser drawer and wash it along with the other dishes strewn about this home.

anyways im not a smart man. so once i turned on the computer i went from hyperlink to hyperlink and saw an old story of CNNs Rick Sanchez being fired and noticed his Twitter handle.

so i typed it in to see if he had kept tweeting or if he was on some drunken vacation on some isle drinking away his sorrows. and alas he was indeed tweeting!

mostly he was thanking his fans for their support and typing hokey sayings.

and then i got to his “motto” and america, i was stumped.

my motto: two wolves; one is angry and filled w self pity. the other is forgiving and loving. which wins? the one i feed. cherokee proverb

i had no idea what he means.

how is that a motto?

why not feed both wolves?

wouldnt the hungry wolf, who i imagine is the angry one, eat Rick Sanchez cuz hes, you know, STARVING and angry?

wouldnt the forgiving and loving one be the one Not to feed cuz he would be all, “its cool Rick, youre one of the millions of unemployed, i know why you didnt feed me, plus if you had fed me i woulda given it over to Grumpy McAngry over there cuz he woulda just ripped my neck off while i slept anyhow.”

the whole thing confused the heck out of me and made me sad.

so i ate my chicken and greens and watched the simpsons

and now i will fall asleep.

‘nite moon.
