A Poor Boy like Me


TFIF: Came home tonight to find my options laid out and no, I didn’t immediately choose the wine; a matter of minutes, if not seconds, passed. It’s been a trying week and I’ve failed in biting my tongue I’m afraid.
 If only there were some way I could be belittled and patronised and yet remain unmoved to respond. I’ve a feeling age will only make me worse. 
As I have said and will always say, “Alcohol IS the answer”…

Not quite in Las Vegas – more like Los Vegans – but watch me float round the Park in a spooky “Wicked” sort of way and sing an extract from my favourite new toon.
Have a great weekend and find the joy; even if that joy is found in solitary contemplation – other humans can make life so unnecessarily difficult sometimes.
