Nothing



"I got somethin' to say, an' then I ain't gonna say no more........
- Mayella in To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee"


Don't think you'll get that lucky. I have lots to say about what I don't like, and what I think is wrong with the world.

The world really isn't changing that much, it is me. Once, I once had a more positive outlook, but time has wasted my mind, and made me more critical.

When I was in my twenties, with two small kids, I couldn't believe how much my parents and in-laws complained about my generation, the way the government is run, how the ways of the world are not to their liking anymore. I didn't share their views, and couldn't understand why they were so negative about everything, and constantly complained.

I swore that I'd never be like that.

It happened anyway. Getting older sucks!

Old is a mindset. Evil Spock plans on replacing parts on Evil Spock as they fall apart to stay perpetually young forever.

I was complaining this weekend about 'kid today'! Yuck. I'm getting old, too.

I find myself saying those things like, "In MY day, we didn't...." and "When I was young, we never..." etc. Even the old, "When I was your age, I walked to school, up hill both ways...in the snow and ice."

I guess it's inevitable!
