Mind?

<In a restaurant> “Mind if I smoke?” “No. Mind if I fart?” One of the great movie lines of all time.

It’s what is on my mind today…my mind.

More particularly, why it works so well at times and then at other times just leaves the building.

How come?

Yesterday was one of those ‘leaves the building’ days. I got fired up early and often, and all most all of it was laughable this morning. I said things I would have rather not said, popped off when I should have just shut up, and knowing that there is a process and that it was working kept it going well after it should have gone away.

How come?

I don’t know.

I lost track of what is important to me, which is the people I work with, the friends that I depend on so heavily. In fact, they really saw the worst of it from me.

I forgot what is important, what the goal is. I forgot all about having fun. I forgot.

How come?

Essentially, because I chose to forget. I was angry, my feelings were hurt, I lashed out.

How come?

I don’t know.

All I do know is that if you were one of those people that I lashed out at, I am sorry. I’d really like to be able to say “It will never happen again.” I can’t say that with any certainty. I will try to make it be so…

Mind if I smoke?

I’m just sayin’
