We've Been Lying To Ourselves…

Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.
-H. Jackson Brown, Jr., writer

G’mornin’ everyone… I’m wakin’ up early like always before every member of the human species. I crashed over at Luann & Allen’s place up at “San Hoe” and I’m pushing myself off the couch now (about 8:30am). Last night, after watching “The Saw” (uneven editing, too much dialogue, unintended humour, but satisfying ending), I was up all night with Allen & Eric, playing poker, playing dice, taking hard liquor shots, and… endlessly debating God, meaning of existence, reincarnation, etc., etc., etc. And eventually giggling myself to sleep reading Master Q comics.

But, after the debate, I’ve been contemplating this issue. Humour me for a second, please. Let’s say I’m a saint, I don’t commit sin, and I’ve been an all-around good soul. And, because of this, I enter Heaven. And let’s say, I enjoy eternal life, with riches beyond my dreams, and 100 virgins to please me. (Hey, this is the kind of Heaven that’s being fed to us mere mortals by the more enlightened religious leaders of the world. I don’t make this crap up.) And eventually, as I am enjoying and living out my Eternal Reward, will I not carry the intriguing burden and temptation of what Hell would be like… Experience and Wisdom keeps us from Boredom, does it not?

Well gotta go take my daily 9am crapper…
