Eat a Turkey Sandwich Today?

Well of course you did.  So did most other Americans who are brainwashed into believing it’s unpatriotic NOT to eat turkey on Thanksgiving and turkey sandwiches the next day.  All traditions are “leftovers” – mindless mental parodies about which you do not have to think and help you remain “normal” on your sleep through life.

Consider this:  have you ever taken someone to a restaurant and she glides through the shrimp, lobster, and steak entrees and then asks the waiter, “Do you have turkey with mashed potatoes?  That’s my favorite!” Uh, probably not. It just doesn’t happen. Turkey is a favorite only on holidays.

Anyway, since your life has probably fallen into a mindless rut and you’re beginning to notice, make yourself a promise: in the next 24-hours, you’ll do something totally out of character for you!

Kiss your lover extra long, buy a beta fish and a pamphlet on how to take care of it, caption some old photographs, rent a Woody Allen movie – buy a different breakfast cereal – go to church – write on a mens room wall -ANYTHING – that says you’re not going to just spiral down your expected dull path to oblivion.

    Experimentation with one’s life is a must, especially when you’re young. Find out what you enjoy and what you want to do before you find yourself with a life full of responsibilities that you can’t walk away from. How many people do you know who fell in love, got married, had kids, and started a job all before they were 25? Too damn many. They sort of drifted into their lives and often ended up miserable. Those who ended up happy got lucky.

    The reverse side of that coin is finding a rewarding life and then settling down to enjoy it. Some people never do, and they end up feeling as lousy as the first group.

    Christ, I sound like Ann Landers. Shoot me.

    I think most people just believe the horseshit society tells them (go to school, get a good job, have a wife and kids, invest in a house) and then they’re screwed if they’re “different”. It was always just awful-sounding to me but mostly everyone I knew eventually “bought” it and now lead vanilla lives (by my standards).

    I wish no one got married until they were 25 (2-years living together before – mandatory) and couldn’t have kids until they were 30. First they’d have to raise an orphan for a year before having their own (then they could give the orphan back – but you know most wouldn’t).

    BTW, my parents were the most stable, traditional, Americans ever. But they always gave their kids the freedom to act responsibly – if differently. Hence my two Muslim sisters in Paris and … me. I have a brother who went the whole traditional route and we all get along just fine.
