Not Even Viagra & A Splint

“Not even Viagra and a splint could make that happen.”

We both laughed and he asked me if I came up with the line on my own and I said I had 0r at least I believe I did.

When you consume as much media as I do it is sometimes hard to say whether something you heard somewhere else has seeped into your subconscious and affected you.

I suppose we could discuss the impossibility of not being influenced by anything but I don’t think this is the time to get into that.

No, not now during the time of Angry Elves masquerading as Attorney Generals or Reality Television stars playing president.

That sort of buffoonery and chicanery prevents me from discussing influences cuz you must  keep your eye on the conman or risk being bamboozled.

Or you just go for broke and try to shoot the moon which is exactly what I am doing.

But first it is time for a dance break with Chris.

Wonder About That Woman

I need to write a speech about my daughter and haven’t started working on it yet. That makes me a little nervous.

I am pretty fast on my feet and could compose something on the spot but I don’t really want to do that because it is asking for trouble.

It is a good way to not be as eloquent as I would like to be so I really need to bear down and write something.

So I look at the girl and wonder about the woman she is going to become and how I can best help her become that woman.

What can I say that is going to help her manage life now and ease some of the path into the future.

When she tells me I don’t know what it is like to be girl I always nod my head because she is right.

I can’t tell her that I see a lot of women acting like older versions of girls and that some of the nonsense she is dealing with now goes away.

Well, that is not entirely fair, because some of it does but not all of it. I see some catty and competitive behavior going on with mothers that makes my head spin.

I hope that she doesn’t have to deal with it but I am not real optimistic because of what I hear from the wife, friends and relatives.

On the other hand not everything I hear is bad. There are a lot of good things and a lot of good role models for her and that makes me happy.

I can do a lot to help her but there are certain things that will be more challenging so I am thinking hard about what to say.

Might just boil it down because truth is I only have a few minutes to speak, but fortunately there is no orchestra to try and music me off.

Ways To Make Money

I got an idea while I was writing this post about a way to make some spare cash.

It is still percolating inside my head and making me smile.

Why?

Because creativity feeds that fire inside my belly and I know one of these ideas is going to hit.

Hell look at who we elected president and tell me I am crazy for believing in an idea. Follow your damn dreams, chase them down and pin them to the floor.

Hold on long enough to see if maybe, just maybe there is a touch of reality inside that crazy moment.

You don’t get what you don’t ask and if you don’t try you don’t get.

So get and ask.

That probably doesn’t sound as cool as it did inside my head but I would rather take a risk and fail than do nothing at all.

Unshackle your heart and take a chance.

That is my motto and what I am doing, in spite of a significant amount of fear.

Failure is right there, floating just beneath the surface looking for a way to suck me into its gelatinous body where it can consume me.

Screw failure, it is time to go for broke.

Viagra and a splint can’t fix everything, but there are other ways to go about it.

    One speech generally has only so much impact. It’s the day to day which truly moves the bar. So, I wouldn’t worry excessively over the speech.
