Some of the photo and writing challenges on WP are interesting. I haven’t actually participated in one, but today I decided to challenge myself to use the first word of the first five posts I read this morning to write an impromptu post, using the words in the order that they appeared as the title of this post. I don’t know why I am procrastinating writing about the final portion of our Italian vacation, but I suspect it might have something to do with admitting that it will officially be over once I’ve written about the Amalfi Coast.
So, today it’s this, a writing exercise. Let’s begin, shall we?
The untainted, gripping exhilaration of an experience that changes your life is something worth sharing. Creating a pure iron thrill revolution story about my recent vacation to Italy has been easy because each day was better than the day before as we shared the excitement of a once in a lifetime opportunity to celebrate the joy that comes from knowing the strength of a solid relationship and the intense sensation of being in the most romantic place in the world.
What a story we’ll have to tell for the rest of our lives!
Now it’s back to the reality of work, bills and the upcoming election to decide nothing more than who gets to screw with our economy, environment and international reputation for the next four years. Yep, that’s right, I said it. I hold zero expectations that politicians of tomorrow are going to do anything differently than those of yesterday. We’ve been told to assume positive intent; after all our leaders are only human.
I will do no such thing!
Nothing short of a 100% (pure) iron-clad commitment to a sensational revolt against the status quo would make me believe any of the stories (lies) being hurled across the airwaves over the past months. Tax the piss out of us! Hell, tax our piss like Nero did the Romans. The coffers will be pilfered before we can say federal mandate! Is my vote a vote of no confidence? Yes. Does that make me cynical? Well, if there needs to be a label on it, then yes, I suppose it does.
History has repeated itself….throughout history. Don’t kid yourself, politics is the oldest profession.
