“…But I’ve Got An Emptiness Deep Inside

And I’ve Tried

But It Won’t Let Me Go

And I’m Not A Man Who Likes To Swear

But I Never Cared For The Sound Of Being Alone…”

… …

Neil Diamond

… …

“…I Am, I Said

To No One There

And No One Heard At All

Not Even The Chair

I Am, I Cried

I Am, Said I

And I Am Lost

And I Can’t Even Say Why. …”

Yeah.

It’s Turned Into One Of THOSE Nights.

Restless.

Sleepless.

Depressingly Depressing.

I Mean, Come On…

…When Do YOU Break-Out The Ole…

NEIL DIAMOND

?!?!?

This Is The Only Song Of His On My Player…

…And I Never Listen To It…

…Unless I’m Having A Little Personal Pity Party For Me, Personally.

I Love This Song.

I AM…I SAID

…Has Always Been My Favorite Track Of His.

Period.

The Lyrics Always Spoke To Me A Tad.

Guess I’ve Been Kinda Depressing.

But When I Get The Blues…

…I Tend To Listen To Sad Songs.

What?!

You Do It, Also!!!

You KNOW You Do!!!

Don’t You Dare Try And Lie To Me!!!

Sheesh.

Some Peeps, Eh?!

(*shakes head in a disappointing manner*)

Now I Suppose I’m Gonna Be Taking Shit From You Just Because I Broke-Down And Broke-Out Ole NEAL, Eh?!

Typical.

He Has That Effect On Some Peeps, My Peeps.

I Suppose I Can’t Hold It Against You.

I Could TRY To Do So…

…But Doubt I’d Get Very Far With it.

So I’ll Just Shut-Up.

It’s Not Something I Do Easily.

Well…

…Unless I’m Around People I Don’t Know, Nor Want To Speak With.

In Moments Of That Type…

…I’m Like A Younger, Taller,Β  Better-Looking Version Of…

CALVIN COOLIDGE

πŸ™‚

If You Get That Quip…

…I’m Proud Of You For Paying Attention In Class.

πŸ˜€

If You Didn’t Get It…

…Hmm…

…You Probably Just Didn’t Give A Shit In The First Place.

πŸ˜‰

See!

Come In Here To Vent With Y’all A Touch…

…And BLAMMO…

…I Crack A Smile In The Really Real World!

This Is The Really Real World, Isn’t It?!

This Isn’t Russia, Is It?

Is This Russia?!

This Isn’t Russia.

Glad We Got That Straight.

Was Worried For A Minute…

…Or Two…

…Or The Last Two-Hours.

Or Whatever.

πŸ˜‰

Maybe I Should Try Laying Down Again?

Ya Think?!

Alright, Kids.

I’m Takin’ Your Advice.

Just Don’t Wake Me Until The Sun’s Up.

Fat Chance, But I Can Hope…

Right?!?

RIGHT!!!

This Is One Instance Where I Know Exactly Why A Song Has Stuck With Me.

Trust Me…

…After The Weekend I Had…

…Well…

…Let Me Just Say…

"THANK YOU FOR SHOWING UP, MONDAY! THIS PAST WEEKEND SUCKED ASS!"

Soak It Up, My Peeps.

This May Be The Only Chance You’ll Ever Get To Hear Someone Being Thankful For A Monday.

But This Past Weekend Was Simply Terrible.

Sadly…

…It’s Not Something I’m Totally Prepared To Discuss.

I’ll Put It To You This Way…

…You Know How People Say…

“When One Door Closes, Another Door Opens”

???

Okay…

…In My Instance…

…One Door Is Still Open A Touch Of A Tad…

…And The Other Doors Are All Freakin’ Locked.

Why Must Relationships…

…Of Any Type/Form…

…Be So Damned Difficult…

…So Damned Stressful…

…So Damned Gut-Wrenching???

It’s A Long…

…Dusty…

…Rocky…

…Shin-Splint-Inducing Road…

…And Said Road Leads Right Back To ME.

I’m Terrible With People.

Always Have Been.

So I Sincerely Should Have Expected This.

(*Begins To Massage Right Temple Because Of Flaring Headache*)

I’ve Had A Bad Headache AND A Bad Stomachache For FOUR (4) Days, Now.

The Headache Woke My Ass Up At 3AM’ish This Morning…

…And I Know EXACTLY Why I Have The Damned Thing.

Perhaps In The Coming Days/Weeks I’ll Be Able To Tell You More.

But I’m Holding Off On Doing So Until AFTER I Find Out If The Before Mentioned Door Is Going To Slam Shut, Or Blow Back Open.

It’s All Up In The Air Right Now…

…And…

…Until Then…

…I Expect The Headache AND Stomachache To Both Continue.

Sheesh, I Tell You.

Sheesh, Indeed.

😐

I’m Unsure How Much More Relevant A Song Could Be At This Moment…

…But This Song…

LEARN HOW TO LOVE

by TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND

…Is EXCEPTIONALLY Relevant, My Peeps.

The Odd Part…

…To Me…

…Is That Out Of 700 Songs On My MP3Player…

…This One Was The First To Play This Morning.

Trust Me, Kiddies, When You Hear This Song…

…At 3AM’ish…

…After The Weekend I Had…

…You’d Be Left In A State Of Wonder, Also.

TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND

…Is One Of My FAVES Of FAVES…

…As Their Music Has The Ability To Bore Deeply Into A Person And Make Said Person EXCEPTIONALLY Contemplative.

My Brain Has Been In Overdrive Since Hearing This Little Number.

I’m Unsure How To React To It All…

…And I Think My Body Is Simply Suffering From A Combo Of Grief AND Fatigue.

Perhaps I Should Rethink The Decision To Listen To Blues Music, Today?

I’m Unsure If I’m Doing More Harm Than Good.

I Will Say I’ve Been A Touch More Emotional.

That’s Both VERY GOOD And HORRIDLY HORRID.

Such Is Life, Eh?!

Yeah.

Such Is Life.

😐
