why can’t you allow me one or two small victories every once in awhile?

“There’s a lot of talk in your life about the ‘moment of reckoning.’ People might say, ‘in two weeks, you might wanna get your ass ready.’  You won’t get any such notice. There is no such office for this delivery. Instead, you may be sitting on the sofa, three beers deep and two White Russians, staring at the television, thinking to yourself, ‘this can’t last forever.’ Hoping, praying that it will–or won’t–last for the rest of your life. Because whatever comes next–it could be worse; you have evidence in your past that it could, in fact, be worse. But at the same time, you know it won’t be that previous worse. It’ll be some new thing. We live in an age that preaches the value of new things, but I am here to tell you that there are some new things that are not so good; some new things suck gigantic asses.”
