Get Used to It

 A lot of people worry when Friday the 13th rolls around.

But I say, so what...a lot.

And if that annoys what....

Sometimes life demands we make adjustments.

So get used to it.

We just can’t control all the things we’d like to.

Like Cheerios…we can’t control Cheerios.

They are what they are….

But do we really need so many different kinds?

I mean they’re Cheerios, little round bits of oats in a bowl.

But we don’t have a say in how they make them.

So adjust…get used to it.

Like people in cars, on the road…driving.

We can’t control what they do…they just do what they want.

Like drive in front of us…or behind.


I know.

We’d prefer they stayed home and left the roads to us...all to ourselves, which would cut down on the amount of traffic immensely.

But they don’t.

That’s just the way it is.

So we make an adjustment…and blow our horns a lot.

Which then causes some of the other driver’s to make adjustments of their own.

Like waving peculiar gestures in our directions.

Or walking up to our cars and banging on our hoods

And then we have to make a whole new adjustment for that.

Then there are the local law enforcement agencies that seem to have a problem with horn blowing.

They tend to be not as understanding as you would like them to be.

So you have to make an adjustment for that.

Maybe not point your finger in their faces as much, as you would normally.

Or at least keep it out of their mouths.

They especially don’t like that.

So you have to make an adjustment there.

Get used to it.

And the local lock ups don’t offer coffee anymore either.

Something about liability insurance or something.

So get used to that too.

And the judges are not as accommodating as they used to be…plus they don’t like their images posted on Facebook…even if you do tag them.

Another adjustment.

And the content on the web has gone way downhill, mostly since anyone with a computer and a friend who can read, is capable of starting their own website to post any kind of crap they want.

I know….


So be careful what you click on.

You never know what you’re gonna get.

And if you end up someplace, weird, and you don’t know why or how….

Just make an adjustment.

And get used to it…

What else can you do?

We just can’t control all the things we’d like to.

Like Rice Krispies…we can’t control Rice Krispies…..
