Pondering

July 2, 2009

As I sit here, at the airport, waitng for a delayed flight, because all flights today are delayed, thanks FAA for down computers.  I watch a woman who know she can’t smoke hold a cigarrete in her hand at a bar, watch another man down tequila shot after tequila shot while his wife watches and smiles and I hear a couple talking about all the places that they would love to go but cannot afford.

I sit thinking about people and how boring tha vast majority are.  Most people are so perfectly content in their little worlds, complaining about how they want better for themselves but unwilling to try, and I don’t get it.  Why are so many people so afraid to make a call put in the effort to better themselves and actually achieve their dreams?  Why would they rather sit and watch television for five hours a night rather than take two or three of those five hours and do something productive, just for themselves, learn someting new, create something, improve themselves, whatever.

Maybe the airport bar is not the best place to sit and watch people and ask why they are not better.
