The Magic 8 Ball of Snide Remarks
My Father-In-Law Hates Me
My Father in Law doesn’t like me much and I suppose that’s not uncommon… I mean yeah, I sort of get it… I’m doing all manner of nasty things to your daughter when we’re not here, watching you, watch football, on TV, but isn’t that just life? I mean… I’ve got a daughter… Your Grand Daughter… And I’m sure I’ll get an evil twinge when she runs off with some Dumb A$$… I’d think you’d have thought about this at some point and we would have some common ground… You know… Something to talk about?
I’ve tried to be friendly, hell I’ve even tried to like the guy, however, all attempts to draw him into conversation go to $h!t… You know, investigating to find something in there that I can admire and respect…I suppose it’s possible it’s not there but I’ve never met anyone that was 100% A$$hole so…
All of this got me to thinking though
How about a Magic 8 Ball Jesus?
Shake it up And…
“Trust in God; trust also in me.” Shake shake shake… “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you.” Shake Shake Shake… “For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his soul?” Shake shake…Jesus in a blue liquid filled sphere... Cool huh?
Oh… Oh… Or How about a Magic 8 Ball Buddha?
Shake Shake… “Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.”…….. Hmm… Probably all it would have to say.
And then that got me to thinking about my father in law again…
Ever hear the term “Being behind the eight ball”? It means: A difficult position from which it is unlikely one can escape (If you shoot pool think about this the next time you break). And then there is this other saying: “Run into an A$$hole in the morning? You met an A$$hole, Run into A$$holes all day? The A$$hole is probably you.” … A$$holes never understand this, they are stuck… Kind of like my Father-in-Law. I’m not the only one that catches a snide remark… Hell all that ever comes out of his mouth are “This idiot this, That dumbass That or What a stupid SOB…”
I mean Really… The poor guy is stuck on a planet full of frikkin’ retards… It must be miserable!
God I hope I’m not like this (though I know I am)… I want to be happy and live in a world of people who no mater how damaged have a spark of brilliant light burning some where in their souls just waiting for me to discover and connect with… And then again… Meh… Screw ’em.
My father-in-law and I had a meaningful discussion last night… Short, just a few minutes but meaningful non the less.
Damn… I feel better now.
