“I really didn’t expect things would get this bad this quickly”.


Please don’t take this wrong!

I’ve alienated a lot of “friends” over the years, trashed a 26 year marriage, and ended up damn near a hermit, simply by speaking out, and scaring people. Last thing you want to do, to be popular, is point out unpleasant things.
Most folks know something isn’t right, but as long as beer is cheap and sex comes easy, they can keep the boogieman in a little compartment, and almost forget about him. I reckon I never had any compartments in my brain. This has been coming on for decades.

Dittos on nudging folks out of their comfort zones. Not very rewarding, but definitely necessary. I'd rather be sailing too, but duty calls. Who knows but perhaps an off-handed quip at the right time and right place may have changed the course of history for the better. Or at least slowed down the race's pace towards self-annihilation.

Persevere.

My problem is I just don't when to shut up. ;>
