Hell is like .......
Saying for the day: Hell is spending eternity in a 4x8 room with your worst enemy.
If you ever wondered what it would be like to spend eternity in hell I can tell you.
I have just spent four days there.
Hell is being stuck in a lift chair and forced to watch American television hour after hour.
You can add to the mix a remote control. This causes the poor person to believe that he will find a program of value somewhere in the vast wasteland.
Channel after channel I went (of course our cable system only has only 31 channels.)
I watched reruns of Law and Order, Quincy, and Perry Mason.
I watched four different soaps. Two on CBS and two on ABC. Boy do those people suffer.
I was subjected to two hours of American Idol. (My wife loves this show and I usually hide in the computer room)
I even watched the President’s news conference.
Real hell would be stuck in a room with a television you can’t turn off and no matter what channel you go to there is President Bush explaining the war in Iraq.
Hell couldn’t be worse than that.
7300 spins without a prize. Old hapless is wondering if it is better to lose all the time and thus not expect to win or to win and win and win and then suddenly lose. The local basketball team went through the entire season without a loss and through the first two levels of tournament play. Then they met another team that hadn’t lost either. Their win streak ended. How bad they must feel. One day they thought they could be state champions and now its over. Old hapless never feels like that because he never wins and thus no expectation.
Well Uncle Wiggly lovers if old hapless doesn’t win at something and thus become so afraid of losing that he never spins again. We will be back tomorrow with another adventure of “As the World Spins”.
Well I'm back in the lift chair. I tried walking but only got in two steps before I couldn't handle the pain. Betty went to Tops. Now she has gone to the Doctor in Iron Mountain. So I am not only stuck in the chair but I am all alone. She did bring the phone here in case I have to call out.When Betty came back I tried wheeling myself to the bathroom . I made it. I still needed Betty to keep the oxygen cord from tangling. Well I need a breathing treatment.
