You whine like a mule. You are still alive.
– Azeem, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
My last post tempted the gods, I think.
Two days after my post, I got into a fight with a good friend over words from my past, recent and distant. A fight that still isn’t resolved.
A week later, I totaled my car when I pulled out in front of someone who I did not see.
That same week, due to minor injuries, I was out of work and lost quite a few clients.
Two weeks later, while house/dog sitting, I get accosted by a neighbor of the house and made to feel incredibly inferior.
A few days later, I get informed that the person who I hit, is suing me for medical bills.
A day later, I had to take my new car into the shop to get the transmission fixed. It took a week, but it was free and I got a loaner vehicle.
A week after that, the mother of my own neighbor sneered at me with such vehemence and hissed I was pathetic, and it gutted me internally.
This week, well, I guess it’s OK so far. I’m afraid to say anything. But I’m still alive. I’ll count my blessings on that.
