On Second Thought
As annoyed as I often get with people, the thought never occured to me until today. A man was in my way and without saying anything directly to him, in fact, without saying anything at all, it seemed blatantly obvious, to me anyway, that I was trying to get by this man. How could you not notice? I am not walking from side to side behind you because this is fun for me. I am moving faster than you, and you need to let me walk by you. Anyway, the thought never occured to me as I was contemplating removing the contents from my nose and launching them at him with the highest velocity which can be generated from the middle finger or even the index finger depending on ones own personal methods, that on second hand, maybe I shouldn't. As much as I want to be as far away as possible from this cat, someone loves him with every fiber of their being. This guy means the world to someone despite that fact that I want him to trip on his untied shoe. It's funny how the mind works sometimes. I finally got by the old guy and just gave him a half smile and went along with my day. As it turns out, it's a lot easier being a nice guy than it is to get all fired up. Perhaps I should try this more often. No promises that it will work or that my new found attitude will last, but I will give it a try.
