Dreaming 'bout my dream
Well, well, well, lookie who has another four day work week! Me and um, hopefully you too. Thank you, Martin Luther King Jr. I was visiting my mom yesterday, who brought the subject up. She asked if I had the day off. <---loaded question. A cousin of hers passed away (God bless her) and the wake is today, MLK day, at 4pm. Just what I wanted to do on my day off. <---sarcasm, in case TickTock man is reading.
Anyway, Ma went on to speculate about why "he" gets a holiday. 'That's supposed to be for the presidents. He was just a guy. I remember him. I know why he gets all a the respect. You know a why?"
No! All a this a because what the white guys did. White guys did that. They kill him. Thats a no good. So now he get a the respect. So much respect he gets like the president because a the white guys do the wrong.
Ugh.....the exchange ended with me telling my mother she can't say this and she can't say that, and that she was racist.
"I like black people. You know why I watch Family Feud? I like a the black guy. You're aunt, she calls them colored people but not a me.
Yeah, that was a fun conversation. I tried to explain that I knew she didn't have any animosity toward anyone but nevertheless she was racist. Her answer..."No! I believe a the black people are like a us."
Where was I? I best get to my point before I head out in 3 hours for that wake. My point is that I too, have a dream. We should all have a dream, shouldn't we?
I have a dream that one day (this summer ) I will win a WSOP event. In Vegas. And dammit, I will do it. There's no reason why I can't do it. In fact, there are more reasons why I can than why I can't.
I plan on working on my game quite intently between now and then, both through more live and online action as well as reading, learning and analysing all I can. It's one thing to want something and it's entirely another to put forth the effort to make it happen. And it will. Of course, when it does, I might get a bit full of myself. :)
Play smart and happy MLK Jr day.
