When I’s a little kid, and my birthday came, all the streets were lined with American flags just for me (or so I believed). When the truth came out, that I had been deceived and my mom pushed me out on Flag Day, June the 14th – well, it was hard to receive.

But Oh! This is old world ain’t revolving just around me and I wish some of you would learn the same thing!

Like on a Thursday night, when I thought I fell in love with this take-charge waitress who served me at the Chinese place… she asked me out on a date. Well. The date was a con, and the con was on me. She tried to sucker me in to a get-rich-quick-pyramid-scheme! And my ego just screamed!

Some people think the whole solar system is singing their praise. But reality is sure to bring it all crashing down; it will happen one of these days.

Like when I turned 16 and my dad said, “Son, you’re going to work for that car.” And I said, “B- but – but but – My friends are all out having fun!” I find my lost coupon on the day it goes bad. I find the missing sock after I take the other one out with the trash. It’s just life’s little games.
