Bill, aka the Crazy Clock Guy, aka Hey You

Random thought in the middle of the night

Quarter after one in the morning, and I'm still wide awake. Oh, yeah, I'm gonna be in top form tomorrow.

I just wrote a letter to my cousin Chris. He's actually my second cousin (first cousin of my dad), and is more like a distant uncle. He's witty, intelligent, has a great knowledge of art and music, and just celebrated fifty years together with his partner, Bert. He's about the only person in my family that I would take the time to write a letter. He's got solid Yankee values, and about the only thing he won't forgive is bad manners.

God has a wonderful way of forcing us to look at our shortcomings. Sometimes he uses complete strangers, sometimes he uses those who are nearest and dearest to our hearts. I've got a lot of thinking and praying to do over the next few months, which will lead to a lot of thinking and praying over the next few decades. Sometimes I wish I could just put a bookmark in my life, go away for a little while to collect my wits, and pick up where I left off, but of course life doesn't work like that.

Man, I hope I get this job at Walgreens. Who knew that working as a cashier at a drugstore would mean so much to me? Worse, what will it mean to me if I don't get it?

I think I'm going to try staring at the inside of my eyelids for a while, and see what happens.
