Here’s an email exchange this morning:
Me: Is it just me or does the paralyzing dread of life get bigger everyday?
E: BIGGER every single day… that feeling of dread you have? It’s because you hate your life.. trust me I know..
Me: Good. At least it’s nothing serious.
E: Nope.. status quo buddy… welcome to the hell that is our lives
Bearer of good news signing off lol
Me: You know I’m totally using this exchange for my blog? Fucking precious.
E: Do it!
Lol.. who cares.. what else do we have to lose… that’s what happens when you take everything away from people… they get dangerous..
Me: Or suicidal.
E: Same result Brewhahahaaa!
I feel so much better.
To quote Bob Black’s The Abolition of Work:
Work is the source of nearly all the misery in the world. Almost any evil you’d care to name comes from working or from living in a world designed for work. In order to stop suffering, we have to stop working.
