Life is just this:
--William the Bloody
Yes, I actually am posting a quote from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which, yeah, I know, reeking of geeking. But I caught the rerun of the musical episode on TV tonight, and the line just struck me as very true. Life isn't a bitch or a beach, necessarily; your life is however you choose to live it.
Neat, and neatly put.
case in point
A Filipina housewife sliced off her husband's penis last Thursday night while he was sleeping. She had discovered incriminating text messages from another woman on his cell phone, and apparently decided to, er, nip the problem in the bud, so to speak. Having done the deed, she then suffered a bout of remorse and rushed the unfortunate man to the hospital, but forgot to take the severed organ along with her. After she rushed home to retrieve it, doctors eventually managed to reattach her husband's manhood.
See? You make your bed, and sometimes you get sliced up even as you lie in it.
