I’ve been writing a blog for almost 4 years now. I think it’s like 3 and a half. I first started on MySpace then dropped it and came here. I’ve written about a lot of different subjects. Some are very serious, others lighthearted, some just down right slanted on a topic or politics. Never in my wildest dreams would my post in jest about Amanda Bynes received so many hits my graph is off the chart. I came up with it in 2 minutes as a joke and it has been my most viewed blog to date. Maybe I should write comedy? Maybe Amanda Bynes will want to meet me or worse yet sue me? Ahhh…I don’t have anything anyway.
Phone calls from guys I sponsor are always interesting. If you are looking for me to divulge someone’s deep, dark secrets on here, you are in the wrong place. There is a thing that a few of us on here still possess…..Integrity.
Guys I sponsor don’t work for me, wash my car, walk my dog, babysit my kids, or any of that other bullshit I have heard that some choose to do. They act as if sponsorship is a way to pimp lives, it’s more along the lines of helping someone find their life, because I can’t save anyone.
The first guy I sponsored relapsed and hasn’t been seen in over 2 years. It was difficult to deal with the emotion involved because I truly wanted to help, I wanted to help too much. I forgot that I am powerless over someone else’s choices. It’s like posts on here. I see a lot of posts about what doesn’t seem to work and why, but no viable solutions. It’s always easy to bash something that has been invented, I would like to see the same energy used to invent something else that works.
In talking with guys I am reminded of the same thoughts and feelings that I had early on. Hell, I still have them. This is what leads me to believe that despite what the naysayers would have me believe about “All the evidence to the contrary” the voices of those I hear whom I sponsor, people who are close to me, posts I read here, let me know that there is something more to this than just “Simple Abstinence”.
Work is work, and home is home. I came home last night to find my wife and son, both in pajama’s, playing video games and being supremely lazy. I felt jealous. I’m back a t work freezing my ass off while they are at home goofing off all day. I did watch “District 9” last night. Excellent movie. Might watch “The Soloist” tonight.
Anyway…Thanks Amanda for showing me that humor, laughter, is the best medicine afterall. Now I can say something funny happened between Amanda Bynes and me and not be lying.
