Guilty Pleasures...

I'm sorry. I freakin' love this tune.

Life is funny as hell, you know that? One minute, you're a carefree college student with not a worry in the world beyond a big test next week and who are you going to find to buy a case of beer for you this weekend. The next minute you've got two kids, a mortgage, and a job staring at a computer screen all day long. Dreams change. No kid ever exclaims "I want to work in sales and marketing". You want to be a doctor, or a football player, or a truck driver, or an astronaut. Then life takes you in whatever direction it's going to take you, and you realize that dreams change.

You dream big, and then life happens. You go to school, you earn a degree, you earn another degree, then you get a job. Just when you think life is done happening, it happens again and then some. I never thought in a million years I'd wind up where I am now, but here I am. It's crazy, it's absolutely nothing like I planned, but I could not be happier if I were twins.

Have a great weekend everyone!

That is all.

My son did, although he was 18 and halfway through his first year of an accounting program. He decided he liked his business & marketing classes better than the accounting classes.

Life is a wild ride no matter how hard you try to keep it on the level. So hang on and enjoy it!

I wanted to be a salesman when I was a kid, and I have been one for almost 37 years. But Jay and NFO have met me, and know just how strange I am.
