A Mug Full of Coffee

A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down,
but a mug full of coffee makes the world okay again.

Which would you choose?

Sometime you have to just smack yourself in the forehead and say “I am an idiot”.

It’s okay to hit the forehead, a guy once told me that the forehead doesn’t bruise.

Okay he may have been a tad … okay exceptionally … drunk at the time,
but if you can’t trust a gay drunk guy in the middle of Siberia, who can you trust?

Of course he then threw a bottle of beer into his tent to save for later ...

when it smashed, as things have a habit of doing when they hit the ground, it poked a hole in his air mattress.

It was the first week of a six week camping trip …

he may not have been as enlightened about the world as I formerly stated.

Perhaps hitting your hand on your forehead may actually leave a rather visible mark for people to comment on,
and thus cause you to relive your stupidity over and over again.

It would then lead to exceptionally low self-esteem and the undeniable urge to run away and hide in a tent in the middle of nowhere until the Apocalypse (which given the current political state south of the border may not be that long to way).

Of course at that point everything will start a new, and it will be okay because there is a clean slate.
A radioactive, burny, lifeless, clean slate, but a clean slate nonetheless.

Though if you could refrain from hitting yourself in the head,
thus accepting everyone makes mistakes sometime,
you could remain at home with your family and friends and forget about that whole Apocalypse thing (they are overrated anyway) and enjoy whatever time there is left.

After all as long as there is a mug full of coffee the world will be okay!
