Potential


Her
: Algebra - pretty much any math.
Me: I'm a terrible Asian; math was never a fun class for me. Mine were English and history. Some science was cool too - like when we dissected owl pellets. (pause) Did you ever have a trapper keeper?
Her: Yes.
Me: (thinking) Man, they sucked. Didn't trap or keep a damn thing.

Think I'm sick. Not sure. But quite possibly.

It's been a really productive week. Trying to wrap up business issues before the end of the year.

For what seems to be the third year in a row, I've not been able to really enjoy my favorite time of year; from the day before Thanksgiving to the day after New Year's.

Wish I were clearheaded. Always cloudy cause I'm sick, I'm beat, or I'm bending time. Sometimes all three at once. Then my mind wanders.

Me: What if I'm not smart at all? What if I just remember things - stupid things. Things that're only good for games shows and cocktail conversations? Smart people don't get their life savings stolen. My brother and sister're smart - I joke a lot that I get by on my charm. (pause) But what if that's true?
Her: (thinking) I think you're smart.

At least 50% of the time I don't sleep, lie awake wondering. Everyone thinks I've got all this potential. But it's almost 2009. I'm another year closer to getting my ticket punched.

When I don't sleep, lie awake wondering about things that I'm afraid to put out in the aether.

Music: Maybe I'll sleep when I am dead But now it's like the night is taking sides
