The Tempest

Not Exactly Shooting For \”Miss Congeniality\”

To Atari of “The Lost Find”

Posted by Daniel on Sunday, March 26, 2006

The unfortunate side-effect of every gay man’s life is that there always is (and always will be) at least one “Mark”. I think it’s written somewhere in the “Handbook For The Gay & Fabulous” the following:

Chapter 69; Paragraph OICU812 =
Now that you’ve mastered the art of getting sloppy drunk on Cape Cods and Cosmos, (and by the way, your hair is holding up fab-u-lous!!), you are now ready for the next right of passage…Turn on your love radar and find the asshole bastard who is sure to make all of your dreams…well…fade into oblivion. Go ahead. You’re young. You have plenty of time to mend the up-coming broken heart, stomped on feelings and replace all of the personal belongings he’s sure to steal from you.

Your Homework Assignment:
Make it out of this chapter without ending up in prison for killing the cheating bastard and the skanky bitch he’s dumped you for.

Okay – I guess I’ve let my personal experiences show. Sorry about that. Hey, at least I’m not bitter. (LOL)

You’ll be fine, brother. This is the section of your life where you learn that no asshole – of any kind – is worth losing your self-esteem OR your sense of worth. As they say, “That which does not kill us makes us stronger”.

(or at least it’s a lousy fucking shot!!)

    does it “make us stronger” right up until the day we die? And, if so, isn’t that the equivalent of “killing us”? I always hated that ridiculous phrase… especially when i consider rape and molestation. eek. But at least i’m not bitter either. 🙂
