#309 - Too Sense

You: penny for your thoughts?
Claw: what, my two cents isn't good enough, 
it's only worth a penny to you?

#308 - Hooked On A Feeling

What we say and how we feel is most definitely two opposites. Often what we say, is to salvage the conversation, to not bring on a harsh or brutal truth; to not bring on a controversy, a difference of opinion. So we may actually mean what we say, but only in a “PG” sorta way. It’s not how we really feel. 

Enter alcohol. If there is any positive in the effects of alcohol, it is in the reality of determining exactly how we actually feel, at any given time. 

#307 - Hai, Ku

I would disagree
If it were not for this thought:
Claw approves of this!

#306 - All Talk, No Action

Talk about me all you want. Makes no difference to me.
The people doing the talking, don't even know me, so why should I care.
At least they're talking about me. And that makes me famous. Or infamous.

#305 - Why Can't We Be Friends

If, or hopefully, when, you can set aside your thoughts and positions on either politics or religion, you can still be friends, just so long as you avoid all conversations involving politics or religion.

Arguments on politics and religion are based on viewpoints, which are basically glorified opinions. There is no right or wrong, which means it is useless to argue because you will never, EVER, change, the other person's views.

If you can successfully not say ANYTHING when your friends start discussing politics or religion, and "suck it up" by remaining silent, which is one of the hardest things to do in life, then you can still be friends. Otherwise, you're wasting your time. Move along.

#304 - I Stand Alone

My mother and father passed away in 1989 and 1995, respectively. My boss is in another city (St. Louis), who I only see once a year. I am knight without a lord. A prince without a king.  An apprentice without a master. A master without a grandmaster. A warrior without a shogun. I am RONIN.

#303 - Yes Officer No Officer

Example 1:
Me: Hey officer, I saw what happened.
Officer: No thanks, we'll take it from here.
Example 2:
Officer: Did anyone see what happened?
Me: Oh, so now you want our help? I saw it all,
but you don't want our help, so I can't help you.

#302 - Riiight..

I do everything right the first time...just not every time.
