when i was young, my father took me on his knee and said these words:

 

life sucks. a lot. more than you can possibly imagine. in fact, if you

ever figure out how much it sucks, it gets worse. you think you may know,

but you but you never will. in fact, when you're lying on the ground,

bleeding from a sucking chest wound, swallowing gutter water, watching the

maggots eat your fingertips, straining to hear the faint strains of

Meatloaf floating down from the passing Volvo's, wishing you were dead,

wishing your wife hadn't killed the dog, fed it to you, hit you in the

face with your cat, divorced you, and married that guy from 8th grade

algebera who you hate, taking everything you own, burning it, and made you

watch it while your sister held you down and tickled you, wishing you had

made something of your life, wishing you hadn't quit drinking and

smoking, feeling the rain slowly soaking your cordoroy jeans and turtle

kneck and filling you Roo's where your last nickel, which is rusted, is

stored, while all this is going on, there is one thought in your head" wow, i've

finally hit bottom!! IT CAN'T FUCKING GET ANY WORSE!!!! THIS IS THE

HAPPIEST DAY OF MY LIFE!!! I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M THIS LUCKY!!!! MANY HAVE

DREAMED, BUT ONLY I, ME MYSELF AND I, HAVE BEEN ABLE TO, IN THE HISTORY OF

THE WORLD, HIT BOTTOM."

 

while that very thought is running through your head, you feel something

nice and warm. the rain is hitting you harder. it's nice and warm. then

you look up, and you realize that god is an asshole. it's not rain. it's

just the neighbor's dog, pissing on your head.

 

 

 

 

sleep tight, and don't let the bed bugs bite. i love you"

 

 

 

 

:) have a nice day :)
