I am going to go ahead and admit that right off the bat. I honestly need to learn a couple damn things before I die and this is my way of accomplishing that goal.
I am bringing along my pal Miles to make sure it goes off nicely and with some music when it goes sideways. If people are entertained by this process it is certainly welcome and appreciated as much as it is perplexing. I am happy to take aboard any hitch hikers on the path to understanding some things.
My primary concern is living on a planet with many people who aren’t me. Maybe I will get a lesson in grammar or a story problem now and again, but I am mainly trying to be a better guy. I aint tryin to be a Buddha believe me. My nirvana is to be able to look around most of the time and say "Ok, this is just fine, and not confusing or scary."
Talking to a varied stratum of folks is the best way to be a clear, content and unparanoiacal person in my opinion. Is "unparanoiacal" a word? Who knows? Certainly not me. One very important aspect of this journey is maybe along the way I can help us all be "Not a Dick". When I say "Not a Dick" it can mean any number of things; all of which most of the general population would recognize immediately. I would say around seventy five percent of dickish behavior stems from being in the goddamn way all of the fucking time...
LOOK AROUND ASSHOLE THERE ARE PEOPLE TRYING TO LEAD LIVES
...ok sorry. Yelling is not a great way to be "Not a Dick" but shit you know what I mean right? Just don’t block the hallway if you have to tell your workmate about the heave stains in the back of your BMW. Or better yet, text that shit. The rest of us don’t need to know of your asshole bathroom shenanigans. Ok, I don’t want to career into a dick-diatribe so soon. Just listen and enjoy.
