“I think what happens is sometimes you got to break your own narrative. We all have stories we’re living and telling ourselves, and there’s a time when that narrative has to be broken because you’ve run out of freedom in it. You’ve run out of places to go.”

one of my favorite tv shows these days is the discovery channel’s “survivor man”.  in case you have not seen it, it’s a show that is supposed to teach you how to survive in the wilderness. well, today i had this idea for a tv show, probably on comedy central.  i was running late this morning on my way to work, so i didn’t have time to pack any lunch.  besides, someone ate the leftover taco bell that i was thinking of taking in for my lunch.

so there it was 12:10 and my stomach was at an all time low.  i dug around my office looking for some food. i sometimes bring extra non-perishables and leave them in my desk for just such an occasion.  i kind of hit a “jack pot” when i found some top ramen.  so off to the kitchen to “cook” it.  i opened the fridge just to see if by any chance i had some abandoned lunch from earlier in the week.  another jackpot….. i had some turkey that i brought in on ….ummm…. i think it was monday.  let’s just hope it was monday.  i also had some carrots probably from that same day.  i “cooked” the ramen and filled it with the turkey.  so i’m pretty excited how i managed to make a decent meal from basically scraps.  people were passing by the lunch room, commenting, “how can you survive on that stuff?” huh… i chuckled to myself, they didn’t know i had turkey in it :) i actually felt a little stuff afterward….. until. until the terrible pain in my side started. i think it’s my imagination, in fact i think it is my imagination that made me think i brought the turkey in on monday!

i should be ok, by the time i ride home.
