Well, There’s That

There are far, far better things ahead than any that we leave behind.  ~  C.S. Lewis

The last day of the old year.  And what have I learned?

Well, don’t eat meatloaf in Albuquerque.  It’s always better to fly first class.  And don’t mix expectations with reality.
I like the desert, but It gets cold in the high desert, volcanic islands are black, and if you want a woman to do what you want you should just pay her.  $100 an hour will usually suffice.
In an effort to get away from myself I’ve travelled thousands of miles and been to lots of interesting places, the weirdest of which was Lanzerote.
I learned that life is much, much better if I am sober. as opposed to being drunk as a skunk.  I also learned that everything comes to a really cool guy who’s already living a great life.  A cool guy gets what he wants without even asking.  And I learned that I like a woman as a friend rather than as a sex object.  Of course, I like women as sex objects too.
I already knew that everybody lies, especially politicians.  That cars are either toys or a necessity.  That I like black hold-up stockings.  That it takes a whole day for me to get to California.  That I like transvestites.  I hate people who smoke.  That I think women who hang out in bars are sluts.  That I do not like people who play loud music in their cars with the windows wound down.  I have fucking good taste.  I have more money than I can spend in this lifetime.
Women like rich guys who are laid back.  That I need a new and classier look. I should maybe rent for the summer on Newport Beach.  That I should not buy a boat, and I still like the Hyundai Veloster.  Women have a very dark side and maybe I don’t want to go there. Of course I want to go there.  I need to spend more time in the sun and not in the cold, grey North East of England.  I want a sexy travelling companion and I want to take her shopping. I want her to be an older woman.
That I will not waste my time on a woman who doesn’t want what I want.  And, I won’t spend lots of time and money on a woman who doesn’t want to have sex with me.  Especially I will not drive hundreds of miles just so that she can have the salad that she likes.
So that’s me. at the end of 2018.

  1. This was a very bad post, and a lot of me wishes I hadn’t written it.
    I am only glad that some much nicer people than I have had the Grace to write thoughtful comments and allow me to learn some lessons.

  6. I love that you are finding peace and happiness in yourself, but I must admit, your outlook on women puzzles me. All women in bars aren’t sluts, but your proposal that women must be paid for their attention makes them all sluts by definition. I have tried to offer support and friendship without requesting one penny from you. When I suggested you travel to my part of the world, I meant it as a possible friendly visit. If you feel I would require payment, then please visit other beautiful areas and pay whatever you feel friendship is worth. I love a fun night at a bar with friends, so you wouldn’t ever choose to be around a woman like me anyway. Stay sober and live a happy life Sir.

    1. Remember, his views on women, and all of life, have to do with his own views and judgment of himself. What he is unable to accept in himself, it’s projected out to all others. It’s not a judgment of you, but of himself. Be well.

      1. I completely understand that, but I wanted to make sure and remind him that all, always and never are strong words. I have battled the self loathing thing my entire life. I knew it wasn’t a personal attack, but for others that don’t care about him and his well being, it could be offensive. Don’t get me wrong, political correctness is a pain in the ass, but words do matter. It isn’t helpful to bash yourself or others. Life’s not perfect, but we have to do our best to find the good. I am SO proud of him for tackling his demons and not giving up on himself. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to clear up my comments.
