Recently, last Friday, around lunch time, an associate of mine sent an email. A flawless email.
Here was a way to tell everybody everything. And, you didn't have to tell anybody anything.
It was a memo with universal implications.
It addressed her sincere wishes, and her most vile curses, in three simple syllables. Hope, and despair, love and hate. It was a perfect circle in a square world.
"I hope you sprain your ankle, you sanctimonious son of a b#@*h, Martin!"
"Hope you get a pleasant night sleep, and have peaceful dreams, Jan."
"Hope you suffer from male pattern baldness you egotistical freak."
"I hope your dinner is the best you have ever eaten, and you still have room for dessert."
I was green with envy, sick with jealousy. Why didn't I think of that? What muse brought her this jewel of memorandum magic? Why not me?!??!!!
I was so angry I fired off an email.
"I hope you, too." It said.
She told me, "it doesn't work that way." And it was her device, so she would know.
I am looking into copyright laws, to find out when her rules will expire, and then I will load up the email cannon, and fire off a salvo of communication the likes of which have never before been seen.
Thanks for reading, and I hope you.

Hope Springs Eternal (and is a dish best served in anger)
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.
