Some Friday thoughts:
May your coffee stay hot, but your demeanor cool
May your boss keep a liberal distance
May the phone not ring, and the breakroom not stink
May the copier not offer any resistance
Here’s to another, week under the belt
And at 5PM the traffic not vociferous
For there’s beer in the fridge, or soda or tea
If there’s anything better I can’t think of it
The week’s been a shit, this much I know
There’s no other words I can say
But the garage door is up, the wife’s filled me cup
Christ, thank God it’s Friday – J. “Hub” McHenry
I’m pretty much out of words today. It’s been a pretty terrible week all around. People arguing about guns, people mourning yet another large group of innocent lives taken by the hand of a lunatic, and we lost an American treasure in Tom Petty. I woke up this morning feeling like shit. Achy, stomach sour, and just a general feeling of malaise. But goddammit, it’s Friday and I’m not going to let a little ick in the gut ruin that. My oldest is coming home for the weekend and I took Monday off so I’m happy about that. I’ve also got lots of music to indulge in over the weekend(which you’ll hear about I’m sure.)
So despite the shit storm yet another week in 2017 has brought us I’m going to try and appreciate what I’ve got and who I’ve got to enjoy it with. Time is limited on this rock. How limited? Well, we don’t really know. We’ve just gotta enjoy each one like it could end tomorrow. Let ’em know you love ’em. Take care of yourself. Savor that cup of coffee. Indulge in a piece of cheesecake. Get outside and breathe in that fresh air. Throw the ball with your kids. Watch a movie someone wants to watch, even though you may not want to. Take time to read that book you’ve been meaning to read. Make yourself as well-rounded of a human being as you can. Shove as much knowledge into your head as you can before your skull blows open. Even then, keep shoveling it in. You don’t have to love your neighbor, but at least wave at ’em when you cross paths, you jerk.
And most of all my lovelies, Happy F*****g Friday.
