Maggie captured a rare moment of my disgust

Well, my disgust isn’t rare but seriously, the lady was on the phone relaying a group order 🌯🌯🌯🌯🙄 so I was pondering out the window the very futility of life itself.

Blue skies on Fabyan

As Tom Petty once sang, “into the great wide open, under them skies of blue.”

mdworkers busy this Monday

My MacBook Air was powered on in the basement, doing it’s own thing while I was upstairs doing my own thing for pretty much all of last night.

And then this morning when I get to work and actually want to use my MacBook, mdworker and his cohorted clones want to take over the world.

Maybe they’re mining bitcoin. 🙄

Mostacolli pronunciation - MP4

Mostacolli: moss-ta-ko-ly ..or.. moss-ta-cho-ly?

Not how you’re *supposed* to say it, but how do *you* say it?

I only saw her rage

Audio (MP3): 20171105 - I only saw her rage

I only saw the rage

Last night I heard an Al-Anon speaker say that she was very angry with her husband while he was drinking. But really she was scared. Scared for a variety of reasons, if he was going to really hurt himself, and so on.

When I was drinking my ex-wife was also very angry. The kind of anger where it felt like I couldn’t do anything right. And I took that very personal because, to me, it just seemed like she was constantly upset with what I was doing and what I wasn’t doing.

It really struck a chord with me, what the speaker said yesterday. Looking back now I can see that my ex-wife was also most likely scared. And frustrated. And hurt. I wish I could’ve seen through to her fear at the time. Seen her hurt instead of her aggravation. Seen her loneliness instead of her judgment.

I feel sad that I only saw her madness and didn’t or couldn’t see what was underneath.

After I’ve moved on and things have passed, it’s easier for me to have an objective look on what was really going on. But in the moment it’s too hard to detach from the then and there, even more so when emotions are high. We’ve all heard that anger is just a cover up but I only see the rage when it’s directed at me.

I started to tear up listening to the speaker because I felt like if I would’ve seen my ex-wife as simply being hurt and scared I would’ve done things differently when we were married.

Instead of reacting defiantly to her anger, I would’ve tried to react lovingly to her pain.

Person B: Don’t say, “peeps” — it makes you sound like you have an entourage.

Me: 🙄

Who wouldn’t want an entourage of marshmallow chickens?

Exactly that. From now on, when I picture you, the image will include a crowd of marshmallow Peeps following you around.

A velvet suit and cape

tcr! · Nov 4, 2017 at 10:45 am

Me: Did you know Edgar Allan Poe’s mom was only 24 when she died? And he was only two.

Maggie: Ya, we had a whole unit on him in elementary school.

Me: I don’t ever recall having such a unit!

Me: Poe also had a velvet suit and cape when he was but a boy. I only dreamt of such fashion.

Note: it was at this point Maggie stopped listening.

I have a velvet cape somewhere. Sadly no velvet suit though. I definitely don’t remember studying Poe until high school. Maybe Junior High.

tcr! tcr! · Nov 4, 2017 at 7:54 pm

I don’t think I’ve had a velvet anything. Not an even a Velvet Elvis. I don’t think we ever studied Poe. I’m surrounded by scones.

keamoose keamoose · Nov 4, 2017 at 8:59 pm

Are they, like, spooky scones? The scones of a man being walled up in the basement? The scones that from out this shadow shall be lifted nevermore? Tear up the planks! —here, here! —it is the beating of his hideous scone!

tcr! tcr! · Nov 6, 2017 at 7:30 am

That’s awesome 😄 I’m barely 20 minutes awake and unable to channel a Poe reply.
