I am the last person in the world who should be pointing out the flaws of another person.
But there is a 400 pound woman eating a stack of cranberry orange scones like a tree chipper.
There, I am glad I got that off of my chest.
The food at Starbucks is one or two healthy items, and a WHOLE bunch of unhealthy crap that tastes incredible, but is SO bad for you.
Especially the cranberry orange scones
I love them.
I haven’t had one in months, mainly because I refuse to have that kind of monkey on my back.
That kind of addiction is an ugly thing
You go down that road and next thing you know, your weight shoots up and you are hunkered down in a Starbucks, shoveling scones into your mouth like a starving wildebeest.
Its an ugly thing.
And yet, I can’t help but sympathize with her.
Caffeine doesn’t alter your body shape as much, but what it does to your head is an ugly thing.
Come to think of it, maybe I did go down that road and never realized it.
Maybe this is the caffeine version of pounding scones.
Plus, the coffee is cheaper than pastries.
And all of it is cheaper than meth.
Maybe all things are an addiction of some kind or another.
Its all a question of what the addiction does to you and how you react to it.
I have to admit, there are times where I despise writing this thing every damned day.
But I have written more quality stuff in the last year than ever before in my life.
And it is an addiction of sorts.
Maybe a good one.
For me, at least.
For the rest of you, your fucked, there is just no way of getting around that.
This little literary blog vomiting is my daily penance.
And I do it religiously.
And you are all welcome.
I have come to understand that a certain amount of voyerism is good for the soul, or at least, thats what I keep telling myself.
It started with some asshole on his cell phone, continued with the Evil couple.
And that is really where I think I “made my bones” as it were.
But is has become something good, bad, wonderful and vile.
About 6 months ago, I gave serious consideration to cutting back the blog
to once a week.
But I refuse to stop writing the blog without a serious reason other than I don’t know what else to do with it.
So I keep writing.
I realize this post is kind of meandering around, we’ve met right?
So, to recap, I am going to keep writing this blog every weekday, realizing that I am feeding a fairly harmless psychological addiction, until further notice.
You can read it or not, that is not the end game for me.
But, if you do, I would appreciate it if you would click the like buttons on the bottom.
Or not, whatever works for you.
