Today is the first step in our long journey down the hazardous path known as the work week. It is filled with peril, and fraught with difficulty, and in the terrifyingly appropriate words of Bob Dylan
"Every step of the way we walk the line
Your days are numbered, so are mine
Time is pilin' up we struggle and we scrape
We're all boxed in, nowhere to escape"
Plainly, trouble waits around every corner, and the best thing we can hope for is to live until Friday, scarred, frightened, barely alive, crawling toward a painfully toward the glorious weekend. It ain't much, but we, here at Life Explained, call 'em like we see 'em, and if we don't see 'em we make 'em up (thank you, George Carlin).
With this joyous news firmly in mind we can "hunker down," "gird up our loins," "dig in deep," and "saddle up and ride." To make your week easier, we thought it might be convenient to have an itinerary for this trek, a guide to this weeks Life Explained, kind of like a written life preserver for your sanity, what little is left.
Monday - well, this is about it, what did you expect for a Monday?
Tuesday - a whiny, complaining recap of this years NCAA tournament, and all of the awful officiating, that cost all of my choices to lose, or joyous celebration of the NCAA tournament recounting how my teams got beat, but are so young, and have such good recruiting classes that the future is filled with immeasurable possibilities. It depends on who wins tonight. We are not going to mention who we are rooting for, but it is not Kentucky.\
Wednesday - we will post a short story written a while ago, and are not sure what to do with. It is a western, with a happy ending, and a quote from Midnight Oil. Their first album was pretty intense, and went well with beer and angst. We hope that doesn't ruin it for you.
Thursday - we are going to cover how GM, Chrysler and Ford have trained spiders to infiltrate the fuel systems of Mazda and cause the gas tanks to rupture. Plus, we suspect these are illegal immigrant, third world spiders, taking all of the good jobs from American spiders. But they work cheap, so domestic automobile manufacturers are saving money any way they can, which is not all bad.
Friday - We will apologize since we will probably forget to do any of these things. But, it is kind of difficult to be too angry on Friday, right?

Monday, Cursed Monday.
There is not much to say, but, for those who find any offense, please remember these are only stories, jokes, and have no relation to reality. Kind of like life.
I like life, and hope it lasts a long time, but it does require some explanation, that is why these blogs exist. To help people navigate times and events that make no sense.
Here are a few places you can find a few things.
The Original Life Explained. Where it all started, a little rambling and a lot of nothing important.
Life Explains The End Views on humanity's race to self extinction. I hope I am wrong.
Life Explains Smiles Because everybody likes it when you smile.
Life Explains Aging Getting older is not always easier, but it is worth the effort. And a few small things can make it much more pleasant.
Life Explains Traveling and Commuting Mostly commuting. Driving bugs me and working bugs me so driving to work is the ultimate insult of modern life, and I like to complain.
Life Explained Explores History. The real problem with history is there is so much of it. It is all over the place. But, if you take the time to look at the small pieces it is fascinating.
Life Explains Music Music is a universal language. I like guitar based rock and roll, but there is a little bit of a lot here.
