Weather: Gloomy.

Opps I missed a day again. Between my fricken cold and not sleeping and working life has been kicking my ass lately. I think I may need a good drunk, oh wait that kicks my ass anymore too. I’ll get back in the grove here, I better, winter is right around the corner.

This morning I was sitting on a park bench next to a homeless man. I started a conversation by asking him how he ended up this way.

He said, “Up until last week, I still had it all.  I had plenty to eat, my clothes were washed and pressed, I had a roof over my head, I had TV and Internet, and I went to the gym, the pool, and the library.  I was working on my MBA on-line.  I had no bills and no debt. I even had full medical coverage.”

I felt sorry for him, so I asked, “What happened?  Drugs?  Alcohol?  Divorce?”

“Oh no, nothing like that,” he said.  “No, no.  I got out of prison.”
