pants on fire

A couple of posts back I said "I am grateful for challenges". That was a bold-faced lie. What can I say to you? It was the sabbath and I was dosed with all manner of  perspective and hope. But I was also totally lying.

There is no gratitude in this heart for the hard things. I actually hate them. When they do not discourage me they make me fighting mad. Which can be good because I've got a few challenges to grapple with right now. And I am telling you one thing.
 We're going to the mattresses.

You heard me, consiglieri.


  1. Going to the mattresses as in mattress shopping or taking a nap? We need a new bed, too. We wake up crippled every morning.

  2. As in the quote from the Godfather before they start cappin' people. It means to prepare for a battle or get ready for war.

  3. If anything in this life is certain, if history has taught us anything, it is that you can kill anyone.
