We're taking bets that sometimes you are wrong...

Over the years I have been wrong about a great many things. Usually it is related to something I couldn't possibly know, but have the arrogance to think I am right anyway. Other times it is based on my favorite sports teams and my faith they will win. When I was younger I was wrong many times about the person I liked as they inevitably never liked me back. Being wrong is a hard thing to accept, but is something we really need to embrace in order for us to grow.

Which leads me to my thought of when you really think you are wrong about something but could be right. Are you actually wrong if you think you are wrong, but actually right? This is a dilemma I am running through in my head. All the signs point to me being completely wrong, but there is something nagging at me telling me you are probably right. Of course this could just be the next chapter in my dropping into madness. Hopefully I will be wrong so all can be right with the world again, but maybe I am right and things will be even more right with the world than before.

Thanks for listening blog.

We're taking bets that your thoughts can cause you trouble...

Hey blog. I hope you are doing well. Sadly my thoughts are keeping me up again. I really need the sleep and cannot figure out how to get it. Just rehashing stuff that doesn't need to be thought of any more. Reality should have set in by now, but my mind keeps trying to find alternatives. Ultimately I am what I am and others are what they are. Why in the world would I be a part of their thoughts or should I even be? It's kind of like that Far Side where the guy is wondering stuff and the girl realizes she really likes vanilla. It is not even that complicated. I really like vanilla, but so doesn't everyone else.

I have decided it is fun to rant to you because even when I rant it is mostly nonsensical. Of course it makes sense to me, but it shouldn't. Thanks again for listening blog. Talk to you again soon.

WTBT Vol 4 - 2016

We're taking bets that...

* even if you love dogs a high pitched yipping dog will get on your nerves.
* seeing someone come up from giving road head in the car next to you is a little disturbing.
* I should pay more attention to the road ahead than the cars next to me.
* the Sox and Yankees are both awful this year and will not meet in the playoffs.
* Prince has so much great music that many people haven't even heard it is a shame.
* Prince might be one of the most gifted lyricists of all time.
* you are getting old if you remember when Prince loved Appollonia.
* there is something strangely exciting about these grilled cheeses.
* being who others thing you are all the time is exhausting because it just isn't the real you.
* the Capitals might actually win the Stanley Cup this year.
* getting a weird handshake from a father of a potential student is probably the best thing to happen to me today.
* the definition of sexy is all in the eyes of the beholder, but this site is pretty on with this post.

We're taking bets that once you go down the rabbit hole you have to find a new way out...

I have made some sound decisions in my life but they seem to be the wrong ones now. I am not sure if I can move past what has happened. One little thing has turned into one big thing. Funny thing is that I am the only one who knows it. They say Virgos could be on the verge of death and no one would know it. I am not quite that dramatic, but I need relief. I am getting some help, but it cannot come quick enough. Thankfully, I have things to make me happy even if they are fleeting. The joy in just one smile even if it is not meant for me is good enough. That's really all it takes just one smile. Thanks for listening blog.

WTBT Vol 3 - 2016

We're taking bets that...

* you are secretly going to miss American Idol next January.
* the top 5 winners of American Idol are Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Jordin Sparks, Phillip Phillips, and David Cook
* the top 5 non-winners of American Idol are Jennifer Hudson, Lauren Alaina, Clay Aiken, Adam Lambert and Chris Daughtery.
* the Bruins did not deserve to make the playoffs, but neither did the Red Wings.
* being sick is never fun even if you are pampered.
* I don't get pampered.
* Quinnipiac Men's Hockey did not play well enough to win the championship.
* QU Men's Hockey will win the National Championship in the next 5 years.
* newspapers like the Boston Globe are still worthwhile especially when they post things like this.
