Morgan Freeman

Today, I feel like Morgan Freeman.

I should probably say that I feel like one of Freeman’s characters, Red. That isn’t to say that I feel like a convict, or that I’m institutionalized, or even that I’m Irish. No, I feel like Red for another reason, one far less exciting but altogether more real.

I guess I just miss my friend.

A Public Service Announcement

In the unlikely event that life has failed to fulfill the dreams you dreamt as a younger man,
And has replaced those dreams with things such as doubt, pain and regret,
We regret to inform you that this unfortunate condition will no longer be deemed acceptable,
But will instead be viewed as a failure which is dragging down humanity at large.

It should be made clear that this condition is not considered fatal,
And will only become chronic if you choose to let it be so.
The Board of Health has noted that there are some well-proven cures to this malady,
And that if you reject the chronic nature of this condition,
Simply following the following prescription will in most cases result in a full recovery.
