Can You Live With That?

The skin you bring to the game creates the game pieces.

Ingress and egress are facts of life:

look it up

check it out

try it on

You pay the entry fee.

Everything you need to thrive you already have.

Your house will always be dusty.

You will run out of clean underwear.

There will always be a lineup.

You are not immune to gravity.

Every experience is scalable.

You can buy your own damn tiara.

Others may walk a mile in your shoes, but they aren’t your cobbler.

This bus needs a driver and there is nobody else who can fit behind the wheel.

You will find yourself driving in places that scare you.

“That guy” will cut you off in traffic.

It won’t matter one bit if you like it one bit.

You will say the “F” word a lot…or think a lot about saying it.

Watch the movie Speed.  Crashing is inevitable – burning is a choice.

Dreams not acted upon morph into regrets.

You have one true Velcro friend, but you may despise her more often than not.

If the journey is the destination, can you live with that?
