i was getting off the bus today and came to the conclusion that i am way too angry at things that should require my ire. the first woman off at my stop had one of those roll bags with the extendable handle. as soon as she stepped off the bus, she bent over and started fumbling with the handle. right in front of the exit. where i was trying to get off the bus.
after i took a breath, i realized exactly how frightening it is that the urge to shove her over her own luggage was only stopped by Phil Collins soothing sounds on my ipod. i really ought to send him a thank you.
by the way, i still to this day think Invisible Touch is about radiation. listen to the words.
anyway, as i walked past the neonazi City Year fitness demonstration, i thought long and hard about why this stupid hag thought it would be a good idea to run a pick on bus patrons.
after taking another drag of my smoke, my mind jumped to the reminder that i try way too hard to figure out the motives behind peoples actions. i guess thats why i have such an empathic mentality and why i am a neurotic, chain smoking IT. sometimes, people just dont have motives. i know this. what i refuse to believe is that there isnt something going on upstairs when they act.
that out of the way, im just going to lay this on the table: i voted McCain.
that said, i whole heartedly congratulate Obama and hope he leads this country in a prosperous 4 years. i also hope that hes lucky enough to avoid some redneck motherfucker who doesnt want one of "those people" in his white house. im thrilled that the country who, 40 years ago didnt allow black people to vote, now has a black person in the white house. thats progress. unfortunatly, there are still people who are living 40 years ago who think lynching is an answer. all i can do is hope that any enterprising young skinhead trips while cleaning his rifle and gives his shiny dome a nice skylight.
