My wife says i need to talk to somebody - Mood:Ashamed

You're the lucky ones.

I don't really like what i do. It feels skeezy selling stuff to people who just lost loved ones, but thats the job and frankly the easiest time to make the sale. Yesterday I didn't pressure, but showed the logic in buying a headstone a day after they lost their kid, 19 weeks in utero. The little one is being buried next to his brother, who they lost at 20 week in utero. Including normal fees associated with burial, the poor couple..only in their 20s, spent $2500 with me.

I can't seem to come to grips with it. Not only do i feel predatory, but i'm surrounded by death and misery wherever i look. I've been doing it for a year, so its normalizing a little bit, but is that actually a good thing?

The other side effect is i think its kicked me into a premature mid life crisis. I'm 36, i'm convinced that my life is already half over.

I learned something cool the other day - Mood:Good
Wednesday July 04 201811:56:43 PM |
I've got a Taylor guitar that was a wedding gift from an uncle from the side of the family that never really acknowledge that i exist. It was a drunken thing back when i was trying to be involved in their lives, we were drinking at my Aunts house (his sister, same side of the family) and everybody was playing guitar but me. He hands me this Taylor and asks me to join in.

This is, like, my ELEMENT.

After a couple more hours of bong hits, beers and tunes he asks if i would like to have it, since the only acoustic in my possession was a beater Washburn (still have it, its almost unplayable).

But, i never learned the guitars story. i googled the model number a couple years back, found out its an mid level guitar and thought nothing of it.

TURNS OUT, its a rather cool little guitar. Its birthday is April 7th, 2006. This is notable for a couple reasons. To Be Continued.

No matter how many times i see this, it always throws me for a loop - Mood:Good

Like, yeah it makes sense, and its terribly efficient. But its also kinda weird and funny.

Also, the box is like twice as heavy as you would expect it to be.
