Default The Technicalities of Trying To Finish 1st and be a Nice Guy

Okay, here's the crap.
My entire universe, much like my hero, Barry Allen's, is falling down around me and I'm powerless to stop it. Why?
Cause I'm too much of a damned pacifist. I've raised hands twice in my life, (once when I got jumped when I was a kid, and about a year and a half ago when I caught my landlady's-piece-of-shit-boyfriend beatin' the crap out of her) maybe a couple of times more, helping someone in distress. Now, however, as much as I can reason, and I am very reasonable, I cannot but help to wonder how I have gotten to where I am.
My daughter, all 6 years old of her, was supposed to be adopted by a couple I knew. Didn't happen. You know, I knew that was coming. If I thought I could physically last another thirteen years (hell, I'd be 60), I'd give it a go. But the warnings and all the other crap urge against that. Long story, maybe I'll tell you someday.
Anyway her mother's mother has her. She calls up today to let me know. Then she tells me another daughter of hers, who KNOWS how to raise kids, is going to adopt her. Well, knowing the sister, I kinda feel secure. But I whisper, in my best Clint Eastwood, "So long as the wicked witch of the west don't come in and screw with her head, I've no problems. If Lynn shows up, I'll be on you like white on rice.".

I may have been a little overbearing, but my daughter deserves a chance. We all do.

Thanks, Life, but you know, good stuff happens. I think , at least I hope, that she'll get the chances I never had. I kinda hope everyone does.

Judging from a previous description of your ex, you had every right &mdash; make that a duty &mdash; to act protective. I hope everything turns out well for both you and your daughter. Like you said, everyone deserves a chance.

"So then the guy called me a "|\|00b". How was I supposed to know that that's what they meant by an "Emu Discussion Board?"</P>
