Strange thoughts before bedtime by Jamie Gilcig – January 10, 2013
CFN - As I sit here bombing myself with soothing tea trying to fight off what just might be a cold I ponder and look back at this last week.
In life there come points when we can’t have our cake and eat it too.
We have to make choices and sometimes those choices are no fun. There is no red or green, no right or left, no black or white or right or wrong.
Sometimes we just make a choice and have to live with it.
Sometimes we have to decide between two friends and sometimes we’re in a position where we can only be real friends with one because of circumstances.
It’s very adult thinking I know.
Life isn’t fair. The tooth fairy is really your mom, and if you’re real lucky, your dad too.
The world is a hard place and people are mean and cruel to each other. They lie; they cheat; they steal, and then one day if you become old in Cornwall Ontario it can be a very scary thing unless you have an awful lot of money; but that’s for a whole other story.
No tonight I’m in a warm house; full of tea, with my loved ones nearby, some still alive that won’t be in a few years. Some great friends. Some great co-conspirators. Some great co-workers.
Surviving is an amazing thing and all of us survivors should smile tonight as the stars twinkle above us.
Sometimes it’s good to think strange thoughts and drink tea….
Night all. Last one turn out the light.
