You make an ASS out of U and ME…
I hadn’t heard that until I joined the Reserves. Then I seemed to hear it all the time… until it just became white noise. And even now I only throw it in the title more tongue-in-cheek than anything else. But in a way… it’s still very true.
I awoke this morning in a pretty good mood. I had read something that gave me a tiny glimmer of hope that perhaps a breakthrough was possible. Throughout the day my thoughts continued to revolve around what was going to happen when I got into work tonight.
“Take it slow… stick to the plan…” I kept telling myself.
After I sat down at my desk it didn’t take long to discover that I had completely fooled myself by reading what I wanted to read into those words, and allowing them to take me on a journey of pure fantasy. Because that’s what I do. I dream. And more often than not, my dreams are just that… dreams. Stupid little fantasies that knock me off-course.
I’m an idiot.
Stick to the plan, Stephen… Stick to the plan…
