    A cat that sits on a hot stove will never sit on a hot stove again. But, it will also never sit on a cold stove. Don’t ask me why cats are sitting on stoves.

    Pig, listen to Paris Goat; you’re passing up happiness for a hernia.

    “There was a very cautious manWho never laughed or playedHe never risked, he never tried,He never sang or prayed.And when he on day passed away,His insurance was denied,For since he never really lived,They claimed he never really died.(Anonymous poem)”

    Last real novel new experience I had was many long years ago. Discovered the butt end of an M-16 to the hinge of the jaw can put you down for while, but as long as you don’t try standing you can still function fully as needed. Botched the “Rush, tuck, and roll” maneuver during training. Was over 20 minutes before I could stand properly again.

    That’s what PTSD is. Healthier to have planned to not be quite so traumatized by what happened to you.

    Learn from it – then instead of weighing you down, it can propel you.

    Pig, some “other people” are better at hiding their baggage.

    I get bored easily so I am definitely more like the “I will try this new thing!” guy.

    “I will try this new thing!” Such as buying a leak-free pen?

    Pig, you can never truly fail if you keep at things.

    Rethink that, Pig. The love of my life passed away earlier this year. The pain and grief are indescribable. But after more than 40 years of shared magic, laughter, joy, and intimacy, I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.

    You can’t avoid hurt in life, Pig. But you can all to easily avoid happiness.

    Pig, and many others, could use Celebrate Recovery. Freedom from Hurts, Hang-ups, and Habits is possible; with the help of others.

    Pig may have something there. What appears to be a heavy bag that Goat wants him to let go, may actually be a huge, untied balloon. When he lets that go …

    Pig self-defines as a Loser in the Game of Life. That’s no fun….
