Are you going to Scarborough Fair?

I don't mean to be cryptic, because that's annoying. But sometimes there are things you can't write about because they are not yours.

But it doesn't mean you don't feel feelings about them.

And so for now I will say that although I have long understood that the world doesn't operate on fairness, and if you expect fair, you will be disappointed.  And you can get upset about it and say, "It's so fucking unfair!" And, well, you may be right. But that doesn't change things.

But I was thinking, you know, IF the universe were fair, then instead of bad things happening to wonderful people, the following might occur:

Dick Cheney, instead of living forever (although I genuinely suspect this is because he has Horcruxes hidden all over the planet), would years ago have succumbed to a flesh-eating bacteria that started on his face, even while fire ants worked their way up from his feet, while also dealing with, I don't know, maybe a case of trench mouth and an excruciating case of moral rot in his intestines.

I'm not suggesting any of these things should happen, nor do I actively wish any harm to the man.

Please understand it's just an example.

Because, you know, I was just thinking.

  2. Fairness is the ultimate impossible task yet I seek it out and expect it on a regular basis. I like the way you think :)

    1. Me, too. I want things to be fair. I try to be fair, and the world should be, too! :)

  3. You and I think alike - or you write what I think about that man for 99% of things - hugs to whomever needs one

    1. Hugs to you, Laura. And yah, he is the devil, no?


Tell me about it.
