untitled (past perfection)

if you ignore history, are you doomed to repeat it?  is your past catching up with you? are you unhappy with what just took place in the kitchen? if so, you may be suffering from past perfection even though when you look back at your history all you see is imperfection. this may cause some tension in your life as you try to overcome the circumstances that have landed you in the spot you now find yourself  (with your favorite coffee mug in pieces around your feet.) you may even find the need to express your past perfection with an epithet. may i recommend “shit skippy”? “fuck” may be substituted as well should you have had the broken coffee mug for more than 3 decades without ever so much as a chip occurring. [do exercise some caution when picking up the pieces of your past perfection. although cleaning up after yourself is considered an important attribute and necessary social skill(take heed if you are looking for a spouse/mate/partner), you may consider weeping inconsolably over the loss–of your favorite coffee mug–before bending down to gather up the shards of your past, imperfections notwithstanding.]

    Just a quick elocution question: Is the emphasis on “shit” or on “skippy?”

    I did it too…it was a mug my late Wife had bought me, and meant the World. I cried, swore, and then called the store in Montana- they sent me two identical mugs…they’re not perfect, but I think of Her as I pour my coffee. St. Patrick’s Day will be three years since I said goodbye. I’ll carefully fill that mug, and think of Her Love that is manifested in my life since She’s gone.

      Even though it’s only a thing, and even though you may not ascribe such power to it while you have it; its symbolic nature is hard to replace. I hope you have an extra cup of coffee on Saturday, Bob.
