TLC – Waterfalls [I was 10]

I was 10 when this song came out.

My son will be 10 in 2 years.

I jammed to this.

A lonely mother gazing out of her window
Staring at a son that she just can’t touch
If at any time he’s in a jam she’ll be by his side
But he doesn’t realize he hurts her so much

But all the praying just ain’t helping at all
‘Cause he can’t seem to keep his self out of trouble
So he goes out and he makes his money the best way he knows how
Another body laying cold in the gutter
Listen to me

Don’t go chasing waterfalls
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to
I know that you’re gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think you’re moving too fast

Little precious has a natural obsession
For temptation but he just can’t see
She gives him loving that his body can’t handle
But all he can say is “Baby, it’s good to me.”

One day he goes and takes a glimpse in the mirror
But he doesn’t recognize his own face
His health is fading and he doesn’t know why
Three letters took him to his final resting place
Y’all don’t hear me

Don’t go chasing waterfalls
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to
I know that you’re gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think you’re moving too fast

Come on

I seen a rainbow yesterday
But too many storms have come and gone
Leavin’ a trace of not one God-given ray
Is it because my life is ten shades of gray
I pray all ten fade away
Seldom praise Him for the sunny days

And like His promise is true
Only my faith can undo
The many chances I blew
To bring my life to anew
Clear blue and unconditional skies
Have dried the tears from my eyes
No more lonely cries

My only bleedin’ hope
Is for the folk who can’t cope
With such an endurin’ pain
That it keeps ’em in the pourin’ rain
Who’s to blame
For tootin’ ‘caine into your own vein
What a shame
You shoot and aim for someone else’s brain
You claim the insane
And name this day in time
For fallin’ prey to crime
I say the system got you victim to your own mind
Dreams are hopeless aspirations
In hopes of comin’ true
Believe in yourself
The rest is up to me and you

Don’t go chasing waterfalls
Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to
I know that you’re gonna have it your way or nothing at all
But I think you’re moving too fast

And now I’m a grown up… & I don’t want my kid to listen to music anymore. 

Get It Together, NFL

I’m not pleased there’s only one Sunday left for delicious snacks & Bloody Marys before noon. Disappointment is inevitable after the Superbowl concludes; regrettably, this season coming to an end feels different. It seems some of the magic was sucked out of the whole NFL experience this season.

Who do I blame? 1e9beef6559fb5070a0824043e122306

Roger Goodell and anyone else who was part of the hypocritical madness that was the 2014-2015 football season.

The plethora of pull-out-of-a-hat punishments that were handed down this season is outstanding. No rhyme or reason. No consistency. No accountability when questioned.

Fans: just throw your blinders on and enjoy the games. 

That’s what I feel it’s come down to.

I’m fully able to make sense that the NFL is a business; a big fat money-loving business. I grasp the concept that life isn’t fair & sometimes shit happens that people need to “just deal with”.

The latest mockery shown by the National Football League exceeds the ordinary, meh-it-happens, bologna.

The NFL fined Marshawn Lynch $20k for grabbing his groin, but the league is selling prints of the photo.

What?

I’m not surprised Marshawn Lynch keeps his mouth shut, can you blame him? No wonder he doesn’t trust the media. He can’t even trust the organization who makes up all these rules and regulations & in their next breath, attempt to achieve some sort of monetary gain from the “offensive-misdeed”.

Grabbing your crotch for .5 seconds in celebration… is not family friendly. That seems to be the the argument.

Guess what? Neither is the Viagra commercial that comes on 3 times per game. I’d rather explain Marshawn Lynch grabbing his junk to my 8 year old, before I explain what erectile dysfunction is.

Richard Sherman & Doug Baldwin explain NFL hypocrisy the best.

By The Way… Go Seahawks!

Let’s All Call Out People Who Litter.

I’m not sure if this new viral video of a lady on a motorbike throwing garbage back at litterers is real, or if it’s staged – either way…I encourage everyone to do it.

Record yourself doing it…or don’t. Call it an act of kindness [for the environment]. If you do video it… please e-mail it to me.

Seriously…WHO LITTERS? 

People who throws their garbage on the ground – are pieces of trash (hardy har har)

But, really…complete idiots with no regard for anything other than their trashy-selves need to be called out.

litterbug

Quick Story: I was in 6th grade, walking with my best friend (also named, Jen) down the street. It was fall & kinda chilly – if you were wondering. Anyway, our dumb kid selves threw a pop can down the sewer drain. A man screamed out to us, “HEY….THIS IS MY EARTH, TOO!” 

At the time… we laughed. Now, I seriously applaud that guy.

highfive

Do it. Call them out. Throw it back at them…if you’re not feeling so brave just scream out:

THIS IS MY EARTH, TOO!

…Even if they don’t take it seriously – they’ll remember it was said.

I’d like to meet the person who defends it not using the plethora of trashcans everywhere. I think I’d enjoy having a conversation – or maybe a well rounded debate on the topic.

Anyway… Don’t litter. That’s all.

PS: I’m also talking to smokers who litter.
