Isn’t the real question, “Will you be able to forgive yourself?”
But does effort have an “A” in it? Has that ever made sense? How would you feel about a “C” for “Close, but no cigar?”
Or better yet,
would a D suffice
for “I tried DAMN hard”?
Isn’t it helpful, when faced with a long thread, to meditate on the ages old question, “How does one eat an elephant?”
It all depends on which
“side” of the elephant
one is next too,
wouldn’t you agree?
Inside or outside?
Now that you are warmed up, maybe you would like to try this thread?
So this thread hasn’t turned into the Weather Channel…?
What have you got against meteorology?
Hhmmm, is this a test?
Isn’t the thread locked?
What am I not getting??
Probably nothing? But isn’t it glorious? Did the pioneers of yore not plumb the depths of the gravest trenches, seeking greatness? Are we not to them as small children, dipping our toes into the vast, restless ocean of questions?
When one dips one’s toes
in such vastness,
does one still think of
Or does one, indeed, rather
think of one’s ignorance?
Can I take “My entire body” for $500?
Wouldn’t I send you mine for use as a summer home if the shipping wasn’t prohibitively expensive?
And anyway, didn’t I already promise it to that nice Mrs. Lovett and Mr. Todd down the street?
Have you tried their pies?
LOL……but seriously, should I go out and do some snow shoveling now, or should I wait a little while for a few more inches to come down?
Doesn’t “The City of Minneapolis has declared a Snow Emergency” sound so much more impressive than its true meaning of You need to move your cars around so we can get the streets plowed ? And don’t I laugh in a light and carefree manner, because I have no car?
Don’t I grin at the idea of 2 inches being a snow emergency in Seattle?
Don’t I then remember how it usually has a layer of ice underneath and there are hills here that would make you go fuck it not worth it in good weather?
No car to move to a blue street after shoveling? My, hasn’t mass transit in the Cities improved greatly since I was a kid?
Wouldn’t I say that some of the transit is better and some is worse, depending where you live and where you’re going? Haven’t they made some routes “high frequency” with buses every 10 minutes which is great, while others have been made less frequent and stops have been eliminated? Aren’t they always tweaking something, so you’d better be on your toes? But don’t I mainly use my toes for walking or putting into the toe clips on my bike, anyway?
Have we reached maximum assholery among the political class yet? If not, is there any hope at all for us?
Could things get even more full of assholes? Should we tempt fate by even asking?
