Taking A Knee

I was in the shower a few mornings ago when I recalled a memory of something I did as a teenager that was so awkward, embarrassing, and downright humiliating that even the decades-old faded echo of the actual moment caused me to grip the door of the shower and, without thinking about, actually sing a wordless melody at a very loud volume to drown out the memory itself inside of my head.

So, to all you awkward teenagers out there, I’m sorry to say… it never goes away. The mere memory of the dumb things you’re doing right this instant will be powerful enough to bring you to your knees twenty, thirty years from now.

That shit’s FOREVER.

Anyway, great talk, smell ya later.
