My life has been a child’s day
and I will be slow to fall asleep.
For many are the dreams that come,
and no cause to hurry.
I was never encouraged to have talent. This pleasantly opened the door to surrounding myself with it.
Between the years of 1972 and 1991, 78% of all rock shows used B.B. King as an opening act. I saw him perform at least 22% of those times. 99% of those audiences were white, and 99.95% of them were impatient to have him leave the stage to get to the headliner. Only 45% of the headliners had ever heard of him, and the remainder adored him because they thought he made them look cool and because he came cheap. B.B King would have played to a herd of sheep if he got paid and the sheep would have been the big winners. He was the greatest of all things. A happy man.
Do we ever feel this bad anymore?
The mystery of how to attract love is a lifetime preoccupation for men. Women are rarely in the dark about this enterprise as the voyage of attaching themselves to the right man begins only minutes after exiting the womb.
No one ever tells boys about girls. I could spend hours on this subject, but it is complicated and inevitably gives rise to psychosocial insult, so expect I will gleefully throw myself into it at a later date, just not at the moment.
When I was little, guessing five to twelve maybe, I thought I could purchase the skills necessary by mail. I sent away for anything that might reveal an avenue to getting a girl. I was doing this long before knowing what “getting” a girl might even mean. I just wanted to touch one anywhere. Below is an advertisement I did answer. It didn’t work.
Women are today’s greatest writers. Why this is, only a man could tell her.
Regret is the door you lock before entering.

I find it impossible to have philosophical conversations with women. They are aggressively uninterested. Nearly all confuse crusted jealous aggravations with being profound. They use earrings to corner a man’s common sense then dagger it.
