Sometimes, you forget the shit you think you know, or should have known. Here are two things I’ve learned this week:
1. You Can’t Judge a Book by its Cover.
I discovered that a blogger I’ve made fun of is actually a very nice girl with a kind heart and a sound perspective. Halcoholic has a lot of jewelry that I can’t stand, but she has an excellent sense of humor and a lovely disposition. I misjudged her, and I am certainly man enough to say so. I can’t wait for her baby to get here!
2. You Can’t Get Blood From a Stone.
This one I had to be reminded about, by my dear friend R. You can’t un-crazy a crazy person, no matter how much you need them to be normal. It won’t happen. It’s a rule of physics stronger than the laws of gravity and thermodynamics. Crazy people will deliver more craziness each time you come back to the crazy well.
God, it feels good to learn something. Knowledge may not set you free, but it’s the only thing you can truly acquire in this world. Everything else is just crap, like cockroach jewelry.
