One of the great things about getting older is that a lot of things start to make sense. Words and phrases that you have heard all your life and have taken for granted and never questioned become clear. I was listening to Lupe Fiasco’s “I Gotcha” (love Lupe Fiasco – new CD in November!) and he said, “…faster than that hog in the hedges”. Oooohhhh, that animal is like a small pig that lives in hedges and gardens and such.
This is part of the reason that I don’t watch Entertainment Tonight anymore: they reported today the record-breaking amount raised this weekend during the Jerry Lewis Telethon for Muscular Dystrophy. What they didn’t mention at all was when he referred to a family member on the air as an “illiterate fag”. If Isaiah Washington had raised a whole bunch of money for charity (he is building a school in Africa), would they have not run that s**t in the ground like they did?
Finally, for those of you that don’t believe in The Secret or the Law of Attraction, here is proof. The day after I finish working a whole bunch of overtime, the catalogs for Aerosoles and Naturalizer shoes arrive in the mail – both with 20% off coupons. It’s like the Universe knew that I was gonna have the money to buy my fall shoes and acted on my intention to make that happen. There are no coincidences!!!
