Sometimes, I Suck

Freak Show Part Uno...

One thing I have learned over my lifetime…never trust a fart, and never, ever...diss a friend.

I had a BFF in high school…Yes believe it or not, Beth had a friend.

She died last week.

Her 45th birthday would have been on August 27th.

I haven’t seen her in 25 years. We had no contact, and yet, she stayed with me.

Did I go to her viewing? No. Could I have? Yes, it was right up the street from me.

Matt-Man went to school with her cousins. 

He’s older than me by one year, which puts him in the realm of the elderly. Shhhh…he doesn’t know. (his AARP card came in the mail, I’m not telling him).

I’ve had a new BFF for the past 11 years. Last night, I hurt him terribly. Did I mean it? No. I suck. Does that make everything better? No.

I can’t erase what I said, nor can I erase the tears that he cried.  Few people can do that, but evidently...

I have the power to hurt; I did not know I could.

This will be short, as I really don’t give a fuck about typing this, but…learn a life lesson from me.

Don’t fuck the person who loves you unconditionally, or you might just end up screwed.

No Zoooooves today…

Sometimes, we ALL suck. What counts is owning up to it. You're a good egg. :)

See, here you start of with 'sometimes I suck', and 'never trust a fart', setting up an interesting post. Then you get into relationship stuff WITH NO DETAILS!

Maybe I'll have to get up for the Monday morning show to see what's going on. .... Maybe.

Beth said...

Sybil: Yea I know, but it still sucks! Thanks.

Mike: Ha! Sorry Mike. You could still listen.

Zooooves.

Matt-Man

Beth said...

Loves baby!

Jay said...

I don't know. Maybe he deserved it? Anyone ever think of that? ;-)

Beth said...

Jay: No, no he didn't. This is all on me.

Knight said...

Well Zoooves to both of you anyway. Whatever the hell that means. We all say the wrong thing sometimes. And yes it sucks.

Beth said...

Knight: Ha! Thanks hon. I think my foot is in my mouth permanently;)

Let yourself up Beth, we all screw up at times. The important thing is that you admit you made a mistake, learn from it and move on. Like you said, Matt loves unconditionally and he's still where he belongs - right beside you.

Beth said...

Rich: Awww, thanks, that was very sweet of you.

Rich said...

Believe it or not, I do have a heart. :)

Beth said...

Rich: Ha! I know, and thanks again;)

Rich said...

Just don't tell anyone, I have a rep to uphold. :)

Amen kid! I did that same thing once, or twice or thrice, well - anyway - luckily for me he was a BIG man in heart. He was able to overlook my bullshit and we remain good friends today. Thanks. We all need to hear, now and again, stories like this to keep us humble and grateful. Cheers!!

Beth said...

Bobby: Thanks! I've done it more than once myself, but it does suck.

I know. Knowing that someone will overlook your flaws is still NO EXCUSE to show them. Cheers!!
