I am NOT the Bad Guy.
I do NOT want to steal anyone's fun. What I am is the Voice of Reason. The Sane One. The One Who Thinks Things Through.
That's a tough person to be, because it puts one in a very unpopular place. Excuse me that I put a damper on your fun because I consider all the facts and know that what you're planning isn't the best idea.
The reality is that all I want is what's best for everyone. But that usually translates to being a stick in the mud. I can't help it if I tend to review all the facts when making a decision...I want to see the big picture.
Notice a little frustration? A bit of resentment? I hate having to be The Responsible One, but if I'm not, I feel like the world as we know it may just tilt off its axis and God knows what will happen...
Now that I've gotten THAT out of my system...on to more pleasant thoughts. Well, never mind, because I may get in trouble for writing about the nice lunch I had today....I'm not sure what is sacred territory any more.
So, how about that World Cup? Cool opening ceremonies in S. Africa, and the Americans tied the Brits today 1-1. I know...I'm not a huge sports fan, but I heard about it and thought I'd throw it out there. My friend Sharla posted a good reason to watch. She is so insightful...
I have an empty house tonight...I think I'm going to watch a movie, and pray that the Voice of Reason has seeped into the brains of those around me.
I really do just want them to be happy and have fun. I'm glad for tonight, it's just me, Roxie and some scrambled eggs.
Blessings to all who read this!
