As I Mature I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in. I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people are just assholes. I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, and it only takes suspicion, not proof, to destroy it. I've learned that you can get by on charm for about fifteen minutes. After that, you'd better have a big willy or huge boobs. I've learned that you shouldn't compare yourself to others - they are more screwed up than you think. I've learned that you can keep vomiting long after you think you're finished. I've learned that we are responsible for what we do, unless we are celebrities. I've learned that regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades, and there had better be a lot of money to take its place! I've learned that 99% of the time when something isn't working in your house, one of your kids did it. I've learned that there are three kids living in your house you weren't aware of ... they are "Not Me" "I Don't know" and "Huh?" I've learned that as soon as you expect the world to make sense, you have lost the game. I've learned that when you say "Things can't get any worse" they invariably do just that. I've learned that every opportunity for romance I passed up in youth has come back to haunt me in old age. I've learned that your mind feels the same at 60 as it does at 25, you just have an ugly ass carrying it around. I've learned that the mirror doesn't lie and neither does the scale, dammit. I've learned that the people you care most about in life are taken from you too soon and all the less important ones just never go away. Pass this along to 5 friends...trust me, they'll appreciate it. Who knows, maybe Something good will happen. If not... well, tough shit.
