Today is Still Another Day

I read back and don't quite recognize that incoherent (or perhaps brilliantly philosophical) woman. Hah!

I've missed you all and am STILL valiantly trying to get to sobriety.

Good news - my girls know without a doubt that I'm here for them. Employers think I'm awesome.

Not so good, I feel still a shell of a person.

I remember. Hey, we all brilliant philosophers when we was drunk! Then again, Plato was too!

You know, some of us has to start as a shell and slowly fill in. It take me very long time just to get my freaking shell in order! That you first job, yes?

Plato was a drunk?
Yes, seriously, figuring out when the shell is necessary as opposed to being obstructionist.

I'm glad to see you back Ob.
I tried to think my way out of the mess - nothing worked.

Action was the key for me

Gotcha, Mr Dee.
Tried the CBT; it was so rational it appealed to me. Turns out in a mess of feelings in need of sorting.

But I AM acting in the meantime. Would no longer be ashamed to ask you over for a cup of tea next time you're in Baltimore.

I speaking more literal about the shell, Obladi.

For myself, I very prone to musings and introspection and philosophy and contemplations. Meanwhile, I still sitting on coach rotting my poor self cuz I a bloody sot! I literal had to get "shell" in better shape before I worry about deeper thing. Was like, hmm, maybe stop killing you self first, Cow, then worry bout nature of you existence and who you really are and crap!

Dude, I get that. Once middle girl is over the hangover, she's totally helping me with dragging the treadmill upstairs.

Unlikely to be passing by, Ob, but I appreciate the sentiment
