Pity Party




As you know, Gary Coleman passed away last week. The odd thing for me was that I thought about him the day before he died causea something my brother said to me about ten years ago.

Me: Feel bad for the guy. It must be hard to have it all and lose it all.
Him: Well, which would you rather be? A guy who once had it all only to lose it or just a dude that never had anything?

Thought about that conversation cause I saw four old friends last week.

The first is a President over at this $54 billion company; not a vice-president, the president of his entire division. Hadn't seen him in four years cause...well, embarrassment's the only word for it.

See he'n everyone else thought I was gonna be someone. Instead, had a few rough years.

But he came to open the door for me to his floor personally anyway and gave me a huge hug in front of all his employees.

Was very touched.

The second was a buddy from law school. The third, PB. The fourth, another old friend.

Onea them asked me a question that hit me hard.

Him: What happened to you, man?
Me: (long pause) Dunno. (thinking) Life, I suppose...dunno...

Threw myself a little pity party on Friday, donated about four suits that didn't fit me anymore.

Then I had this conversation on Memorial Day.

Her
: (motioning over to the television) There should be more stories like this, about the people that survive and have to live like this.
Me: You're right.

A woman once said something like, the job of the soldier's to protect us; and the our job's to remember them.

Sounds like I got the better of the bargain and for that I'm grateful.

A one day pity party's plenty, especially for a lucky guy like myself.

Keep getting these chances I don't deserve.

Music: feeling lonely I had a life to give many dreams to live
YASYCTAI: Throw the party if y'gotta but keep it short. (60 mins/1 pts)
