This was a long weekend due to MLK day. I’d love to pick up that hot potato but frankly you can pick your own version of the man. I’m just convinced that we should not be so happy as to call this equality by any stretch of the imagination. This country is so far away from treating people by the content of their character but instead attempts to treat them based on atavistic ass hattery, having the right combination of chromosomes , which invisible friend they have and a myriad of seemingly hardwired behaviors that have people acting as a walk on part in their own life. ( Notice we often talk about the lessons we need to learn? )
Here’s a view that may seem over simplistic but seems to fit most of my experiences with groups .Welcome to the monkey sphere.
Onto something happy. Today was a matinée ice hockey game. Dobh was in attendance and was being wickedly cute, and while a bit difficult he took a three hour trip pretty well. He howls along to each score for the home team. He had a lot of opportunity today🙂 This is the first time in over a decade I’ve made a point of watching a sport that wasn’t a national event such as Wimbledon or the Super bowl. The fan attire fits me nicely, there’s a level of skill immediately apparent that I can’t discern in baseball and I don’t even want to get into professional football. I live in Phoenix for fucks sake 😉 Even though I never had a sporting background. I still had to play rugby, soccer and hockey at school , I lived in the country with one non driving parent. It wasn’t that big a deal we could only afford one car.( you tell the kid’s that today and they won’t believe you </python>
so it wasn’t really an option.
Boy do the American’s know how to put on a show,
