Two nights I rolled around sleeplessly on account of my room mate.
Dude killed two people (on purpose) and over the course of 36 hours revealed his philosophy of life to me.
Cheesus fuckin criminy – was all that kept zooming through my mind.
I’m just a friggin alcoholic!
Yes, mayhaps I leans a bit too much on my wife’s wine making capabilities and maybe even from time to time I overindulge and fall down but jeesus creepers…
No matter how much I get riled up at folks, I would be hard pressed to muster the gumption to take another human life!
Sheeoot, I can barely spank people. (and now have abstained nearly altogether)
But this guy who I watched sleeping like a baby killed folks. And he was very okay about it.
I tried not to think too much about the transgressors of dude’s philosophy. They were “inconsequential” and now bystanders to our reality.
Nope, the wisdom I carted away from our traumatic trip together was that in my life drinking too much was okay and that I should investigate pot.
My headstrong room mate’s advice was quite contrary and required some deep thinking.
And to be open to that I had to first find the courage to close my eyes.
Thank you, friend.

Being able to unlearn history is one of the things former Governor Jesse Ventura preaches. His new book American Conspiracies reminds us that there is plenty we have already forgotten and not remembering our mistakes dooms us to repeat them.
