Random Thought #23

I know this ten-year-old kid who doesn’t go to school. He hasn’t gone for a couple of years. The other day I asked him why he doesn’t go to school anymore, being “still so young”. He said he got kicked out. I asked him what he could have possibly done that was so horrible to get kicked out. “Bunking” he told me.

Wait!

Let me get this straight, as punishment for a kid that bunks school too much they… kicked him out?! That makes no sense to me! Wouldn’t a better punishment have been to FORCE him to go to school every day?

You just never know! I mean you never, ever, never, NEVER, EVER know…until you know. And even then, you still don’t really know.

Some days are destined to be wet, sticky armpit days; rush out of the shower, slime on some deodorant, rush out the door, take a brisk 30 minute walk to the train station, climb on the packed train… They really don’t stand a chance those armpits.

I am pretty sure my laundromat uses body odor as soap and burnt rubber as fabric softener.

Strangers really and truly can never know what goes on inside your head; the thoughts, the pain, the love, what you’ve been through, what you’ve done, where you’ve been, where you want to go. But their judgments sting. Maybe we should remember that when we send our judgments back at them.

“If I Were A Boy” by Beyoncé has got to be one of the most emasculating songs for a man to get stuck in his head, with “I’m Every Woman” by Whitney Houston following close behind.
