whatcha ona bout girl??
A retrospective on the inner workings of love, flying pancakes, mensa disasters, dandelion cookies, number bending, super salt, bubblegum oysters, chicken spit, crystal kidneys, guerilla carrots, polychromatic tofu, paraphysics, tender vigilanties, black sand, phillastine placebos, wood soup, buttered shuttlecocks, apostrophe training, fish whips, bleeding speed, plastic fantastic lobster telephones, venus drug rehab, clowns on fire, kiosks on a leash, marshmello overcoats, bottled light, fried blood, unbridled hyperthyroidism, folding wine, amygdula tickling, fainting in coils, hamburgers for the apocalypse, plastic memes, and conjugal fritters.....well...the love parts true

Trees, the affair, and myopea of the heart


Yeeah dude….I missed it…..totally. I just did NOT see it. Oh I saw the forest for sure….just missed those damn tress….its the trees stupid….yeah I got it……I GOT IT……..now….
My buddy Leo missed it too…...so did Evan. I hadn’t seen Leo in a while so it was good to catch up. He had the family van and I had the cheap beer. So we’re riding around the old back roads of high school, belting out classics and swapping stories that spark memory and uncontrolled laughter that brings tears…..and then I ask…..”Hows Robin?” ….she’s fine …she’s listening to country music lately though……..now I cant take credit here.

Or did I miss again
I think I missed again oh

“Shes cheating on you”…..WHAT?...no shes not …I let it go……the call came exactly one week later. “WHAT DO YOU KNOW? YOU KNOW SOMETHING!! HOW DID YOU KNOW?? …Leo what ARE you talking about?? “SHE MOVED IN WITH SOME GUY!!
Evan REALLY missed it. He and the wife went to a marriage counselor who asked him what he wanted. He gave his 20 minute story about things, honestly and constructively and then the councelor asked his wife who said “I want Evan…..to LEAVE ME ……..THE HELL ALONE!!!!! His wife apparently had a thing for the neighbor’s wife. Fun Fun.
Me? I missed it too. The details aren’t important but lets just say when I got back from counseling church camp for a week with my daughter I found out she was on her second affair.

Im waiting in line
Would you say if I was wasting my time?

Fall is starting and….. I can …...FEEL it. The forest dies but the trees…..BEAUTIFUL…..bright and colorful in the light breeze. It makes you stop and stare.

Bring it…….bring some vision. Do I miss the forest??......No…...The trees more than make up for it. Some people want the forest to be around forever…even when theyre not happy anymore. When you ask them how the forest is……they say the forest is ok……its fine…..I’m alright…….Im surviving….I’ll pretend the forest is ok …for the kids…..
I couldnt stop the fall from coming…and that’s ok…turns out it was worth the wait. I LOVE the fall….you just have to remember when it comes……to get back up.

Fall is a beautiful season and falling is a wonderful learning tool.

Great post!

You can't follow me because I still have the "old" blogger. I need to convert but I can't get my cool shitting gorilla template on the new one. =( Maybe it's time to give it up. The shitting gorilla that is.
