Virtue 11 - Day 1

Yes, dearest reader - I am back.  After 24 hours of additional healing time, I think I can now type without busting open the cut on the end of my finger and bleeding everywhere. 

Our Virtue Du Jour:

Justice: Wrong none by doing injuries, or omitting the benefits that are your duty.

Well, in honor of our virtue, you will be happy to know that I went out of my way to help people out today.  The only injury I've inflicted recently was on myself and my poor, mangled little hand.  So far, so good.  I will again go out of my way to be Superman again tomorrow.  After that - woot woot - we can move back to mediocrity. 

Just kidding.

So, have I told you guys about the book I'm reading right now?  It's called "It's Only Too Late If You Don't Start Now" and is designed for people who are over 40.  I've heard that some people actually ARE over 40.  Isn't that strange?  I've been 38 for several years now, and it's working well for me.  Anyhow, basically this book tells you that you are never again going to be 25, so stop pretending like you actually are, and that you are able to compete with said 25-year olds in the career/dating/physical appearance arenas; embrace your well-earned mature self, quit your job because some 25-year old is breathing down your neck for it, and you hate it anyway; do whatever you want whenever you want, stop scheduling your life and wearing uncomfortable clothes, die happy, probably broke and in need of a makeover.

It's like the antithesis of my drawerful of Tony Robbins cd's.   In fact, Tony probably just clutched his heart and yelled "NOOOOO" and he has no idea why.

Anyhow - what do you guys think of that?  Is it okay to "drop out"?  Or are you in the race until the end?


  1. I wish I could but then I think about things like: School wants lunch money, electric bill needs paying, groceries need to be bought... ya know- those pesky little things that prevent me from 'dropping out'... dern.


  2. I agree with everything except quitting the job. That, you should keep just to spite said 25-year-old. Every time they breathe down your neck, you should turn around and slap them in the face with your extra years of experience.

    Of course, my opinion may not be the best. I dropped out years ago. There is something to be said for wearing pajamas seven days a week...

  3. Queenie - I don't actually have a 25-year old breathing down my neck. I actually wouldn't mind it...if he was a Puerto Rican salsa dancer...mmm...

    What were we talking about again?
