Went out to get some food with the og a few days ago. We’re riding around, and there’s a lady in the car ahead of my car, doing something abnormal. I don’t remember what exactly. From my passenger seat, the following is shouted: “oh what the fuck are you doing”, “get the fuck…”,”…this dumb bitch”. There were some other things dished out as well, but those are basically the meat and potatoes of that rage platter. A platter, slathered in brown, cantankerous gravy. He was so pissed, and he got to that level so quickly. Internally, I was having a chucklefest. It’s funny to me when anyone gets mad to that extent, for no legit reason (he wasn’t even driving). Outside, I probably wore a look of confusion, with a hint of concern for what I’m sure was a strong upward jolt in his blood pressure. We all got home safely though. No further incidents of shotgun road rage.
I’m home chilling on the back porch, starring at the trees, feeling small, physically not psychologically, and I got the urge to write.

LOL @ “discover this truth”. That’s some real BS GURU stuff, right? I practice it though. I joke when I tell people I’m at constant zen. I have a loose grasp of understanding Buddhism so I really don’t know if my (mostly) constant state of being is zen like at all. It’s probably not. I’m chill though. Realized I ain’t shit long time ago.
