Let's be serious for a bit...there is trouble all around the world.
The US is in a few wars, starving children and genocide in the Sudan, Japanese internment camps still in California, Global warming, flooding, earthquakes, tsunamis, social unrest in China.
So much suffering all around us.
The 'Feeble Minded' experiment north of our border that's gone awry.
Drought, famine, racial bigotry.
So much horror all around us.
So the other night I'm out to eat and I'm sitting at the bar area and the waiter delivers my meal...turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn, biscuit....and all covered in gravy.
So in my little part of the world things are good.
I go to put salt on my turkey and instead of just having a normal salt shaker that folks have used since the dawn of the dinosaur I have to use this stupid salt shaker that I have to turn over and grind up the large chunks of salt that is in the jar so it becomes like the FREAKIN' SALT SHOULD BE IN THE FIRST PLACE!
Dear 99 Restaurant,
Don't complicate my life! Put a damn normal salt shaker on the table! Sorry I didn't go to MIT to learn how to use your stupid salt mulcher!
Something as simple as salt should be as simple as salt. Don't make me think when there is gravy on my plate!
So much suffering in my part of the world.
