Work; a 4 letter word that doesn't have to be fun.
But has to be done.


Most slackers should remember they dont have to work, they get to work.


A bull without horns is still dangerous.

Law of logical arguement-Anything is possible when you dont know what you are talking about.

I try to tell myself that all the time. The problem is I only went to school until 8th grade and then had all the next years completely free to do whatever until I joined the army at 20. Then a few years later, with my newly acquired skills I was off and running again..traveling the country without a real job. This went on until...of course...I hooked up with a lady love and she got pregnant...mmhmm. Fun officially over.

I had planned to spend about 2 years with them and then continue my rolling ways but lo and behold, I realized I couldnít leave my little scamp in such hands. This was not a chick I wouldíve purposefully chosen to procreate with you see. And my assessment of her was correct as she ran off Into the ether.

So there I was, a simple DJ (not really, I donít even like music lol) with all kinds of talents and skills...none of them suited to real work. I could no longer risk my royal person each day as I had for so long, since I had his little kid that I needed to look out for.

I worked changing oil, landscaping (omfg..I already donít like the heat but that job turned me into a hermit just about), a soup factory (again...upper 90ís with sauna like humidity and a freakin hair net on my shaved head), random helper to many different trades, welder. All these things, except for the welding position I just hated. Ugh. Work...who needs it am I right?

Luckily I was born with a high IQ. No one would ever guess Iíve got an 8th grade education...unless you try to advanced math me. I donít even know what the symbols mean so no way I can Intuit my way through that. It took a while but I finally got an interview where I convinced someone to let me in an office job lol. It almost isnít even a job! I talk to people and order things and make sure stuff is going well with these construction projects etc etc. itís stressful but not ďhardĒ. Salary and benefits and all the good stuff.

I know exactly how lucky I am to be there but all the time Iím still thinking about how this is the only one time ever Iíll get to live on the giant floating rock the hurtles through space. Will I really feel better about my time here if I work hard and subscribe to the American dream? I always planned on being gone by 30 but again...the little scamp came along

So now...a brotha is 32 and a working stiff. Do I get to work or have to work? I just donít know. I do have 3 or 4 lifetimes worth of memories in my slightly addled brain, so I feel I did something right.

Wow...donít mind me azb, just a subject Iíve got some feelings on hehe
