I don't know about a central story; that's just too hard to pinpoint today when I'm barely putting one foot or one thought ahead of the next owing to this miserable end-of-year cold/laryngitis/viral thing that started in on me yesterday. I can barely croak out words, called in sick (which I rarely do but I'm learning NOT to see patients when I'm infectious), and am lolling about in bed eating toast and sipping orange juice. No partying for me tonight. Sigh.
Core story...well, here's one that is embedded pretty deep in me, for decades, for as long as I can remember.....
The concept of
2.What Goes Around Comes Back Around,3.You Reap What You Sow,
and my Mother's favorite phrase whenever the topic of misdeeds and mistreatment surfaced, 5."It's a long road that doesn't have a turn."
Said more succinctly and with a bit of bravado: Do some shit and expect to pay up. That's why I don't throw red paint on private property. Conversely, if someone does me wrong, I take a wise woman's advice to sit back, wait and see what plays out. It's amazing how often the can of whoop ass opens up all by itself. You just have to be patient. Thanks, Nicole.
Happy New Year all! Remember, according to Kate, be sweet to your neighbor because....what goes around comes back at ya! Eventually.
