Blown plug

You get a feeling in your bones. Well, one does, or maybe one doesn't in which case one gets a feeling, somewhere, somehow.
The feeling can be sharp pain from kicking the bed stumbling around at four in the morning, trying to find the your way back into a little sliver of sleep while the rest of the world snores. 
The feeling can be the cold shock of putting a foot into a puddle where there should be no puddle. 
The feeling can be a sadness while you read, and re-read your best friends most recent text, trying to make sense of whatever it is they are trying to say. 
These are just feelings. 
I thought we'd talk about them. 

How about this?
You ever are walking and it is raining and lightning and thunder storming and drenching you from all sides and you think about what happens if you get struck by lightning and what that would do to the rain soaked snicker bar you are trying to inhale on your way to the train?
Does it melt?
Does it shoot out of your mouth like a slimy missile?
Does it somehow, miraculously act as a ground, insulating your mouth while the lightning dances all over your skin while never actually touching you?
You ever think about the tiny cut that might do you in?
The one you got from kicking the bed? The one that could easily become infected and lead to a life saving amputation?
I mean, stranger things happen all the time. 
Like how that snicker bar saved my life one time.

Pulled Back In.

It'd be easy to walk away if it wasn't always so awesome.
Not everyone gets to tap into the inter dimensional soup.
Maybe, though, not everyone tries.

Trying is key.
Listening is key.
Trusting is key.

What a fun thing it is to be alive.

Things Change.

Sure Do.

How do I say this?
How many different ways do I say this?
I've read the best way to say this is...
Don't confuse the issue mainly. 
In other words stay on point. 
And be brief, for gods sake don't mince words. 
Whatever that is supposed to mean. 
There I go, straying off topic. 
What was I saying?
Right, what I wanted to tell you was...
I mean, I guess I already said it. 
I don't remember when, why would I?
If you remember, why am I even talking then?!
Oh right, also, keep emotion at bay.
Meaning don't make eye contact!
People are like chimps, they smell the fear in the eyes! 
So wear a blindfold.
And call a cab. 
Don't drive blindfolded to a serious talk. 
It'll be hard enough for people to respect your words with the blindfold on. 
See? See how hard this is?
You think this is easy,
Like making a Radiohead album?!
Oh man, it's no wonder you're in this boat. 
Trying to make sense of a mess. 

Who even told you to ask me?
What, THEM?! 

You can't listen to them, they're as bad as I am at this stuff. 
How do you think I got into this mess to begin with?

I hope you were taking notes. 
I gotta get back to work. 
This truck can only drive itself for so long.
