This afternoon, I walked into my kitchen an noticed that my half-full bag of sandwich bread was missing. Luckily, I found it in the refrigerator. I know that some people do that on purpose (But, really, who?). I felt so stupid.
I made sandwiches this morning, and my mouth-breathing ass left it in there. I hate how something stupid, like misplacing something inane like a loaf of bread or a child, can make you feel.
When I do laundry, there always seems to be a lonely sock. I always feel bad for it. He essentially lost his date to the Dago’s Dresser Drawer Dance. Sometimes, we can avoid the entire lonely sock situation. I’ll get super lucky and just lose two socks from two different pairs that look similar enough that I can pair them up. Instead of going stag, the socks can keep each other company during a difficult time, like when two friends go to prom together. However, you do feel for the socks that are out there all alone in the cold and rain. What could be going on with them? WHY HAVE THEY GONE?!
It doesn’t just stop at socks. I’ve misplaced guitars, amps and other semi-important things. However, these situations do provide us with moments to redeem ourselves. Who knows, maybe you’ll find something awesome when you are looking for your copy of NFL Football ’95 Starring Joe Montana for Sega Genesis. Perhaps, you’ll find your VHS copy of Wild Things, en Español. Kevin Bacon is ten times the actor in dubbed over Spanish. Maybe that late-1990s era Darth Vader Replica Lightsaber will come in handy for your Jedi Training or for when you throw a Star Wars/Eyes Wide Shut-themed party. Maybe some day someone will give a shit that you have a signed Warped Tour ticket from the lead singer/pianist of Something Corporate.
Whatever the case may be, I think, like a lot of people I’m sure, I just find excuses to beat myself up about something. I’m reminded daily of how self-confidence is a luxury, and the smallest things can make you realize how down on yourself you can really get for the dumbest reasons. It’s the “Oh, gosh, can I get anything right?” feeling, that I get all the time. It’s important to just step back and realize, in any situation, that you’re the shit and if anyone tells you any different, you have to verbally or physically bitch slap them ’cause you’re a fucking winner.
PS: Sorry, if this post is really weird and sucky. I feel kind of awful, and sick. I made a commitment to post once a week, at least, and goddammit, I’m doing it. Thanks for reading, y’all.
