The Fix in 2006
What if this is it? What if you do make it to be 90 years old and realize you never did anything you ever dreamed of doing? What if in your golden years you look back and see that you made all the safe choices, but you never knew what it would’ve been like to make the decisions that could’ve altered the entire course of your life? In 2006 it’s time to dispel the “what ifs” and actually do it. It has been my experience that folks will like or dislike you regardless of the efforts you make to try to appease everyone. So why not make the most important person in the world happy – YOU. My recent decision to get tattooed and pierced spurned everything from amazement to complete distaste, but ultimately, I was so glad and relieved I was again doing what I wanted to do. It isn’t rebellion, it’s refreshing. When I was younger, I made some pretty strange choices, some that made me either extremely popular or an outcast to those around me. What always comforted me was that when I laid my head down each night I knew that I had lived. I did exactly what I set out to do. Later, I began making decisions based on what folks would think of me, what they would say; all in the hopes that more people would find me acceptable. The kicker is, they don’t. The same people that find fault in you as an individual, will find fault in you when you attempt to conform. The entire package of “the fix in 2006” is to not only get the body back in order, but also the mind. Recognizing that the confident creature you are is as much radiating from the inside as it is sparkling on the outside. Admittedly you’ll make some foul-ups and even ruffle the feathers of the conservative crows around you, but when you close your eyes each night think of whether you’ve lived – your way – and if you can honesty say you have, then you’re on track to a better you.
Easy…He’s A Girl
Mongkon Pusuwan was arrested in Singapore for drug trafficking. The alleged drug dealer’s identification – a passport – showed Pusuwan to be male. Normally, any male convicted of dealing drugs in Singapore is caned and can even be put to death, depending on the quantity of drugs discovered on the accused. A medical exam revealed Pusuwan is actually female. The Thai transsexual had a sex change several years before. Now, she is set to serve six years in prison for the conviction. Females are not allowed to be caned for their crimes.
