As Bright As A Bulb


If you have never heard it before there's a negative connotation to the word "bright". I suppose that people of old soon discovered that those around them sporting illumined expressions were sometimes living life in ignorance-is-bliss mode.

Maybe there's nothing wrong with that, but I can't help but feel that I'm getting sick of it. Oh, I'm talking about the me feeling sick of being an idiot phenomenon, not that I'm surrounded by them. Come to think of it, that's getting pretty tiring too. But back to what I was saying, it's high time that I get my act together and stop living my life of blissful ignorance.

There's not a whole lot to be said for lack of luck in one's life, simply because luck is what you make of it. Too often I whined about how unlucky I was in everything that I tried my hand at. The circumstances of my life were mired in a series of mess-ups, and it pained me to not see an end to this. To make matters worse, there was the smiling, willing, straightforward march into the next mess-up that gave my life a comedy-of-errors feel to it. And, it seemed inevitable. So, I smiled some more and ended up going around in circles. Ha ha ha ... It's stifling though.

Each one of these lightbulbs is beautiful. Each one, a symbol of the dull glow of abject stupidity. Here's to the 1000-watt life! May it shine bright, as a beacon for other wanderers, so that they may see it and avoid this path.
