Pessimistically yours...

Last night I thought I might possibly be having a heart attack. I did a mental check the exact state of me - what should I do to make it easier for whoever found my body and/or had to deal with deconstructing my life.  Then, I ordered sheets. I'd looked at new sheets earlier in the day and decided I didn't need to spend the money.  When I thought I was going to die last night, I figured, what the hell and ordered them. I'm not kidding. I really did. It cracked me up.

I figure that a heart attack will take me down eventually and I'm ok with that. I'm not interested in putting up with medical intervention to prevent it.  I just hope it's fast. So going to an emergency room was not on my list of things to do.

I woke up this morning pretty much totally alive and feeling fine.  Joke's on me!!  Sheets are on their way. Oh well, I'll skip brunch today and that's half the cost of the sheets.  I'll chalk the other half up to 'oops'.

But, listening to the news and reading some internets this morning, I'm not all that bummed about possibly not living a whole lot longer. I think the people in this country are just headed in the wrong direction and I don't think I want to see what that turns out to be. And I don't want to listen to them anymore. I think those who shape opinions in the media - all media - are carving out a world that I don't want to live in.

People wave the constitution in my face when they want guns in their pockets, but toss it out the window when it comes to justice and fair trial.

So I'm ready to go. I'm happy and fine to hang for a while but while I'm sorry to miss all the cool gadgets of the future, I'm ok with not having to live with the people of the future.
