Good Morning Suffering Anecdotes,
In the nearly five years of jotting a few notes down to document the odd and often times stupid, I’ve never asked much of the two or three of you that read this ungainly walk, at least in terms of remuneration. It’s pretty much just me pouring out my inner most thoughts exposing my involvement with it all both good and bad. With the addition of those that occasionally contribute to my humble forum (you know who you are) it has doubled my enjoyment and can only hope the same for the 197 of you morons that peruse this site twice per week or more!
Occasionally something is said or commented on that provokes you to participate. It’s my hope to leave this tripe as an open forum meaning you can say whatever you would like, but hopefully it’s done without venom and expressed with tasteless tongue n’ cheek and sardonic overtones. Out of the 197 of you I’d consider regular readers I only know a ‘handful’ and wonder why more don’t participate. Sure it can get brutal, but I’m a living example of that ‘sticks and stones and words never hurting’ reference because I’m continually lampooned. I suppose that’s the attraction as everyone loves to watch a train wreck. But these ‘slings and arrows’ sting momentarily, but are rarely debilitating; a flesh wound at worst!
Look I’ve always said this is all about me, and most understand that. However after reflecting on this for some time now, I’d like to change things up a bit. From the beginning I’ve always insisted anybody with a submission of original thought would be posted without regard to content, grammar, or spelling. There’s been a few over the years that have submitted essays or pros which I’m always grateful for. And from the feedback I get most of you like it. In fact, some hurtful remarks suggested I retire allowing the new blood to become senior editor. Being the administrator of this forum is not easy and certainly nothing to strive toward, but find it rewarding in some unfathomable way so I’ll continue to have the last say.
Those of you in Brazil I challenge you to write even a single paragraph to at the very least, introduce yourself. You dozen blokes in the U.K. surely must have a tale to tell regarding life as a Celtic. Perhaps I’m asking too much. So in that spirit I propose that from this day forth, I will accept original work of any length. With the exception of those of you predisposed to posting unreadable text, if you’ve got something to say, even if only two sentences in length, shoot it to me. Either attach a photo, or leave that to me, and I’ll post it. It freshens this den of turds with variety and makes the experience far more pleasant. Or not! But the idea is worth the effort don’t you think?
