The Oldest Story in Narcotics Anonymous

This little kid wants to play with his dad. He’s trying to get his dad’s attention, but his dad is an accountant and it trying to get rid of his son so he can continue working. So he gives the boy a ripped up map of the world and tells his son to come back in an hour when the map is put back together. The boy comes back in 2 minuets with the whole map put together. The father says, “son, that’s impossible, how did you do that?” The boy says, “Dad, on the back of the map of the world is a picture of a man, I just put the man back together and the whole world fell into place." 


Cecil Otter - City Girl (Amuse Meant To Get Her) (by datboiwes333)

My manager and me were taking during closing last night and we were taking about guys in the program ( she’s in recovery too) and she asked what my drug of choice was. Which I haven’t really thought of for a while, ya know? I’m an addict, period. I’m not an opiate addict. Or a coke addict. But just an addict. So I kind of stumbled for what to say. Then I told her, “I did meth and smoked pot,” how weird those words were to leave my mouth. I haven’t said it in so long.

She was putting money in the safe and she looked up and told me that she was going to pray for me every night and that I have a lot of determination to have left those things and started anew.

I NEVER. I mean never thought of it that way. I had determination to stop using. I’ve heard the stock “you’re a miracle” but no one has put it in terms like that to me that I had determination to turn things around.

This is kind of big for me because jus a couple days ago I was feeling like a complete failure and that I should just relapse because this shit isn’t working out for me. Ya know, I think I’m gonna stay a little longer.

Just some things that bother me

You tattoo our “sugar skulls,” but call us wet backs.

You eat our food, then tell us to get out of “your country”

You wear our style of dress and try and say you represent gangs that our people started for protection, then label us thugs and criminals

You admire our female’s bodies, but only before she’s pregnant, because somehow we’re the only people whose body changes after we’ve given birth.

You tell us our language is beautiful, but you have the audacity to tell us to only speak your’s.

When we try and speak your language, we have an accent that’s too thick SO YOU SPEAK LOUDER TO US AS IF THAT’S GOING TO HELP

If we’re too dark, we’re ugly, if we’re too light “oh, you’re Mexican? You’re so light!” Like, somehow being light is a good thing, just so long as we’re not “brown”

And again, you love our women, but we’re whores when we get pregnant

You put the vegetables on your table; along with your wine and meat that we picked and cut, but we’re lazy and stealing your health care and government assistant

You love our architecture, but you say we overrun your apartment complexes and play our music too loud

You buy our drugs with your own will; you cultivate your drug farms from the seeds we gave you, but we’re all a bunch of drug lord pieces of shit

Reason #1 Why Football is Better Then Baseball

They play in the snow. Like right now in Lambeau Field against the Tigers. It’s fucking snowing and they aren’t stopping the game. Why? Because they train too fucking hard to do that. My bb Clay Matthews is out with a hamstring injury, but he’d be out there like the fierce beast that he is even in a blizzard. 

And on an unrelated football note. Can I just express how disappointed at last night’s fights I am? No one won who I wanted to. Especially not Diaz. Henderson is a force for sure, I loved him when he was in the WEC and I love him still now. But I’ve been a Diaz fan for longer. Nick lost his last fight very ungracefully, so I’m proud that Nate was polite and had a good attitude last night. I think Nate could move up to welter too. I was thinking about that last night and I think he could be even better at a higher weight class. 

And poor BJ. I don’t have anything against McDonald as a fighter, I think he’s brilliant and has some spot on footwork, but his cocky attitude really turns me off. He was fighting against a fucking legend. He won that fight fare, though. BJ needs to stay at a lower weight for sure. He’s just not as strong any higher. 

I asked my boyfriend for Nate Diaz’s walkout hoodie from Metal Mulisha for Christmas, I hope I’ll have that under our tree!

It's been a minute

Next month on the 14th it’ll be a year since we met. How does that even happen? On the 1st of January we’ll have been a couple for that long. Now how the fuck does that even happen?

I’ve been working full time in the meat department at the grocery store I work for and I definitely don’t know how that happened.

I feel more centered. I’ve done a lot of growing in pain. And I feel (almost) content. And I can’t even begin to explain how that happened.

But I’m growing in ways that I never thought of. I’m becoming a woman that I respect and I still have my kinks I need to work through. But I don’t think I’m supposed to explain how that happened.

Isn’t my ex the sweetest motherfucker ever? God. Why did I leave you? Why? I kick myself everyday for having moved out and breaking up with you. What I wouldn’t give to go back to the life we had together. This is my life’s biggest regret. How will I ever go on?

Please note the sarcasm. Because it is abundant in me today.

It’s like no big deal if someone thinks I’m ugly or whatever, but when some fuck that’s known me for damn well over three years insults my intelligence. I get a little froggy. And by froggy I mean fucking pissed. This guy. I swear.

If everyone could please send positive vibes, good thoughts, pray, do a happy dance for my kitty Dexter. He has spinal damage from getting (what we think is) getting hit by a car. His front left paw is lame and therefore he is dragging it, which I can’t imagine to be very pleasent for him. He’s the sweetest cat ever. We rescued him from the Orange County Shelter in 1998 and he’s been by my side since I was 7. He means so much to my family and me. He’s already lost his kitty mama and little kitty sister. Please pray that my little man gets out of his 24 hour observations safe and sound. He’ll have a semi-lenghy recovery, but we are more then happy to do it. 

Thank you everybody who keeps him in their prayers. 


These cats!
