Location: my new Montreal Apartment, cleaning and unpacking. The Montreal movers I hired did a grat job, so my work is almost done.
Music: “Come down now,” but we’ll stay I’ve tried my best to leave
Her: So what did the guy choose?
My mind plays movies and television shows for me all of time cause, probably like you, I was raised by the cathode ray as much as anything else.
William Shatner was in this episode of the Twilight Zone where he was on his honeymoon but was afraid to leave cause a mechanical doll kept telling them they couldn’t. And he got it in his head that it was right.
Thought about that this week and that scene in Heat where the lead can get it all – the girl, the money, the life, everything – if only he’d leave his old life behind. Just walk away from everything. But a need to equalize something kept pulling him to stay.
The woman that stole all of my coin was seen this past week in NYC.
And like that mechanical doll, the Devil rang me up and told me what I had to do.
Told him that I just wanted to walk away from it all and he said I couldn’t.
Do you know, exactly, what a billion is? A billion is a thousand million or 1,000,000,000. Lehman brothers lost 613,000,000,000 dollars. Kinda puts my six-figures to shame.
Then again, it was my six-figures. One does get tired of having just chili and rum for dinner all of time.
It’s just the cards I’ve been dealt. And sometimes, y’gotta take your cards and let fate deal with the resta it all.
Don’t let anyone fool you, everything comes at a price. And, I’ve learned, if you let a thought bounce around in your head long enough, it’ll drive you mad. Quite literally. Better to let it go.
Besides, who’re we kidding? I love having chili and rum for dinner.
Me: He went back and shot the guy.
Her: (waiting) And? Then what happened?
Me: He lost everything he wanted – everything he really wanted.
Her: I don’t think it’s worth it.
Me: (smiling) Yeah, me neither.
YASYCTAI: Isn’t it hard to let things go. But y’gotta sometimes. For your own sanity. (apparently 36 years/3 pts)
