"From this hour I ordain myself loos'd of limits and imaginary lines, going where I list, my own master total and absolute, Listening to others, considering well what they say, Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating, Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that would hold me."

Walt Whitman (1819-92)

"When I look back now over my life and call to mind what I might have had simply for taking and did not take, my heart is like to break."

Akhenaton (d. c.1354 BC)

And now, the current weather, from some random person we pulled off the street:

No, They are Not Kidding About the Turkey.

1 : a quarrelsome utterance or conversation -- usually used in plural
2 : what happened today at work.

Well, it happened again.

They have opened yet another checking account, and again I am not a signatory on it. This time the plant manager worked it out so that he and his secretary were the only signatories. That happened Tuesday, and today I hit the ceiling with him.

Among other things, he said that he could not trust me to be on the account because I was "crazy." The man does not have a clue. I can't believe I work with people who are so idiotic and crass. He also attributed the decisions and opinions to the company chairman.

I left early and when I got home and I was livid. I ended up calling the company chairman on the phone and asking if what I had been told was true or not, he assured me it wasn't.

My wife wants me to quit, like today. I know we can't afford for me to quit.

Went out and ate dinner and had a turkey sandwich. Turkey has a chemical in it called Tryptophan. This chemical works as a natural antidepressant. I figured that would be a good choice for me tonight.

I got home and a lady that worked as a temp at my company until yesterday was on line. I told her what happened, and her response was, and I quote, "F*** him Cliff!" She then added "I'm sorry to be so vulger, but I hate people who treat others like s***, he has no right at all."

Then her husband who was also there agreed with her. He used the "S" word instead of the "F" word but same meaning. I said no thanks, I'd rather not get that close.

It's nice to get some respect from a person who has worked with you. I felt a lot better afterward.

Shortly after that I began to relax. Now I can feel that it is the turkey, inexhorably pulling me towards those deep breaths and sleepy feelings of contentment. I recommend it, the stuff works.

You can call it going cold turkey if you like.

Rudeness is the weak man's imitation of strength.
Eric Hoffer (1902 - 1983)
