A Farewell to Arms

December 10, 2012

They don’t make things like they used to…

Thursday night, I was relaxing for a little bit between getting home from work and starting on some paperwork I brought home. Busy times require some relaxation. My relaxation of choice was to play a video game.

I was maybe ten minutes into gaming when the Playstation 3 just up and died on me.

Seriously. Why that day? Why on the one day when I need just a small break from earthly concerns does a hellish invasion of Mars destroy my one conduit to sanity?

Urge to kill rising…

The rest of the weekend was a roller coaster of ups and downs.

Mall shopping on Saturday night, surprisingly tolerable.

Grocery store pie run on Sunday afternoon, so intolerable that I contemplated the merits of vehicular homicide. I very nearly found fault in my Catholic upbringing which told me murder was wrong.

Maybe I’m being overly dramatic, or maybe I’m just a lone sane person amongst an ocean of insane waves, constantly trying to swim against the tide before I finally give up the struggle and let the insanity feast on my brains and add me to its zombie-like collective of mindless locusts sent forth from Hell to sup on all of Earth’s bounty, leaving a barren wasteland in it’s wake.

Or maybe, just maybe, some people whom the law and the church would call innocent are wrong. Maybe some people need to be stricken from existence in order to make the world a less stressful place for everybody else.

In other words, don’t jaywalk because one day I might not use my brakes.

    I think rationalizing vehicular manslaughter is a skill everyone should master.

    There’s a monkey at IKEA?

    A monkey got loose at an IKEA in Toronto.

    Sorry about the PS3. Glad the mall was tolerable. :)

    I’m sorry about your PS3. :(

    I loved your line, “a lone sane person amongst an ocean of insane waves.” Quite poetic, actually!

    Oh yes! Darc and I are quite familiar with that feeling!
