He’s Baaaack 

Posted to Facebook three years ago today.  About a month before everything changed.  Only in hindsight did we realize though.  Sometimes there are momentous life changing events even in the mundane.  

The mister returned to work today where he was treated like royalty. Franco took him to a special lunch of goat cheese enchiladas at Rosarios. This evening Pony and Wise treated him to Hsiu Yu special fried rice. His fortune cookie read “if you have a job without aggravations, you don’t have a job” He says he never wants to be without aggravations again! 

In fact,  he welcomes the aggravations. And tomorrow he is braving the scaffold again – different job site, same risk. I feel nauseous but what are you gonna do?!?!? I hear the Who singing ” Then I’ll get on my knees and pray. We don’t get fooled again.” Not exactly the same sentiment but the lyrics kind of work here.

    Sounds glib, but it is truth. A very deep truth of what it means to be a grown-up.
