Observations from the End of a Noose (chapter II)

Here are a few more observations about life and death, passed to you from my weary eyes and wicked brain.  Please do NOT take the "end of a noose" literally.  I am not typing and close to swinging at the same time.  Some people are at the end of their ropes..... mine happens to be a noose, since I have no clue what my future holds.  ;)

1.  People suck.  Yes, there ya go.  It doesn't matter if they are good, bad, indifferent or biased.  People will suck forever.  If one isn't letting you down, then another is, time and time again.  The lesson we must learn is to not "suck" ourselves.  We must be there for ourselves when others can't.  Get off the pity train and hop on the "I will do it myself" express!  Sure, once in a while you may let yourself down or be disappointed in yourself, but at least you learn a lesson and don't repeat the behavior. (I would hope anyway!)

2.  They aren't making good movies and the music stinks these days.  Now, this conclusion leads to another one... I am getting old.  I can remember when my mother made this same statement.  She was referring to the 80s movies and music!  GASP!  The best decade ever for music (MJ, Madonna, Hair Bands, John Hughes movies, The Star Wars and Raiders trilogies) and movies.  When you start noticing that music and movies stink, it means you are aging and your tastes are changing.  They told me chemo would affect my taste buds, but they didn't say it would affect my taste in music and movies!!   I tell ya, if this is all chemo... someone HAS to pay!  (Pay me back for all the money I have wasted watching some movies On Demand lately, they were terrible!)

3.  Diapers are way too fancy.  Denim, seriously?   Now they have diapers that are a step between the ordinary diaper and Pull-Ups.  Really?  You need a step in between?   (yes, this consumer did buy the in between step diapers and is quite impressed).  Diapers hold urine and crap.  You don't need something fancy to hold urine and crap, you just want durable.  I am not going to apologize for wanting crap contained no matter what.  As much crap as a baby produces over it's 2-3 years of diaper wearing, if you quit with all the bells and whistles, you may just makes diapers more affordable again!  Again, the economy sucks and you are making diapers more expensive which means there are more poor children running around in diapers that aren't containing their crap because their parents can't afford those fancy things.  Thanks, you bunch of "diapers must be pretty" freaks!  THEY HOLD CRAP!  GET THE POINT!

4.  Too many people tip toe through life.  Jump, don't tip toe!  I don't give a crap (no, no diapers in this one) how old you are, try something new.  I recently tried crab legs, 40+ years of refusing and I finally gave in.  I LOVE IT!!  I haven't been able to get those leggy creatures out of my mind!  My mouth waters with every thought.  I look forward to going out to eat again just so I can eat some crab!  Now, if I had been a coward, I would know the sweet, tender taste of a crab.  It's part of my plan, to do something I have never done whenever I have the opportunity.  In this hole of a town, my experiences will be limited to food more than likely, but once I kick cancer in the ass... it's hello WORLD!

I hope you enjoyed some of my observations, I hope you can relate!  If you missed Chapter I, let me know... I don't think it's up here, it's (shocker) on another site! 
Always remember to look to the sky for answers, He is listening!
Tip your observers, we are the philosophers of the day!  (My donation button is on here somewhere and it's to help my family through my cancer battle) We thank you!
God Bless and stay tuned.... surgery part II will becoming soon!!
