What up! What up! What up kids! Today is Sunday September 16, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for two months and twenty-nine days or better yet, ninety days in total. As always, I feel like Tony the tiger… GRRRRREAT!

On a birthday celebration note! Even though my son’s official twenty-fourth birthday is today, but because he is an American football fan, he asked that we went out and celebrate it last night instead, so we did. He wanted to do that, in order for him to spend Sunday, watching all the football games on TV. I have to say, that we all had a really good time having dinner together. The main thing is, that he has come a very long way and has been accomplishing a lot of goals in the last few years.  Right now he is attending college, because he wants to become a license electrician. As a matter of fact, while attending school, he is already working in that field, which makes my wife and I really happy. Last night, after we dropped off my wife and daughter, we drove around for a while looking for parking. Meanwhile, we had some really good conversations about school, work, the neighborhood and even about how young men and women his age, are throwing their lives away by committing crimes, selling drugs, not getting an education or a job. I have to say, that just like my wife and I, our kids went through what I like to call “their crazy teenage years”, but eventually, they opened up their eyes and realized, that my wife and I were right, they had to get their shit together and indeed they did.

As for my loyal 1.5 readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

Thinking About My Dead Father

TTV - Dead Father - 1

First things first my peeps! Today is Wednesday September 12, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for two months and twenty-five days or rather yet, a total of eighty-six days. As always, I feel like Tony the tiger… GRRRRREAT!

On a father note! For some weird reason, this morning I woke up thinking about my dead father. You see, one day when I was around eleven or twelve years old, while no one was home, my father packed his clothes up and just walked out of our lives. For twelve years, we didn’t know if he was dead or alive or where he was. One day, the same way that he disappeared from our lives, he reappeared. That was when I was around twenty-four years old. As a matter of fact, I went to meet him with a couple of my sisters, only because my mother asked me to multiple times, not because I wanted to see him at all. The funniest thing is, that he introduced himself to me as a stranger would, not knowing that out of nine children that my mother had with my him, I was his youngest one and his only boy. For a while, I blame him for anything and everything went wrong in my life. But after a while, I started to credit him for the type of man and human being that I turned out to be… because I always promised myself, that I will not be like him. The one thing that I can say is, that no matter what happened to my family and no matter what we went through without of him… I didn’t turn out to be a bad son, brother, husband and father after all. That’s why I have to thank all the people who were involved in my life as I grew up and became a man, specially all the women. I have to say, that this morning has been truly strange and weird to say the least. I really don’t know what to make of it.

As for my loyal five to ten readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

TTV Version 2.0

First things first my homeboys and homegirls! Today is Saturday September 1, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for two months and fourteen days or rather yet, a total of seventy-five days. As always, I feel like Tony the fucking tiger… GRRRRREAT!

On a people pleasing note! It’s really fucked up, how sometimes we try to be the best version of ourselves that we can possibly be, yet others keep looking at our flaws. From a very young age, I’ve always said, that if a family member or a friend was to ask for one-hundred favors from me, but I was only able to do ninety-nine of them, that person will never forgive me for just that one favor, that for whatever reason, I wasn’t able to do. The person will hate me and will probably bring our relationship to an end, just for that one favor… Forgetting about the other ninety-nine that I did do. I might be one of the nicest, most open-minded and understanding person that anyone can ever meet. But you have to keep in mind, that in this crazy and insane post of mine, I never said that I was perfect, because I will never be. As a son, brother, uncle, husband, father, dog owner, friend, neighbor, co-worker and fellow human, I just try to be the best version of me, that I can ever be. I’ll just leave you with this well-known quote. “You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all the people all of the time”.

As for my loyal five to ten readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

A Quick Talk With My Son

20180428_214247

What up! What up! What up y’all! Today is Thursday August 30, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for two months and twelve days or better yet, seventy-three days in total. As always, I feel like Tony the fucking tiger… GRRRRREAT!

On a father son talk note! As my son and I were getting ready to go to the salt mines this morning, we had a very interesting talk about work. I told him about my thirty-three years of experience working for different companies and about the things that I’ve learned and the people who I met throughout those years. I mean, don’t get me wrong because of my previous post about not giving advice to my kids. It’s just that throughout the years, I’ve learned to give advice to them, only when they come to me and ask for it. I just don’t want them to feel, as if I’m intruding in their personal lives. I also want them to learn how to make their own decisions and on top of that, how to make the right ones. One thing that they have always known is, that they can come to me anytime with any question or problem and I will sit and listen and not judge them or scold them. Boy! How I wish I had parents like me! The reality of it all is, that looking back now, compared to other parents, after all was said and done, my parents were pretty good. Hey! Just look how I turned out!

As for my loyal five to ten readers, I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nothing or nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

You Are Not Talking To Me? Good!

TTV - Not Talking To You - 1

First things first y’all! Today is Sunday August 12, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for one month and twenty-five days or rather yet, fifty-five days. As always, I feel like Tony the fucking tiger… GRRRRREAT! No anxiety, no depression, no hangover, no regrets… I mean nothing! I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

On a not talking to me note! Throughout my life, I’ve had many people who have stopped talking to me for some stupid reason or for no reason at all. Do you know what’s funny about that? That I never gave a fuck about it! The thing with me is, that I will never force anyone to be my friend or let alone, talk to me. As a matter of fact, if for whatever stupid reason a person stops talking to me, the way that I look at it is, that the person is actually doing me a big motherfucking favor. Why? Because that will be one less person, that will ask me for a favor. Yes, you read that right… since the person won’t talk to me, he/she won’t be able to ask me for a favor if they need me. The truth of the matter is, that I have bigger and more important problems to worry about in my life.. Like for example, when is the next time that I will be taking a shit? That right there, is more important to me, than worrying about why some dumb stupid asshole, doesn’t want to talk to me.

I’m Not Down With OPP

TTV - Down With OPP - 1

First things first y’all! Today is Thursday August 8, 2018 and it means that I have been sober for one month and twenty-two days or rather yet, fifty-two days. As always, I feel like Tony the fucking tiger… GRRRRREAT! No anxiety, no depression, no hangover, no regrets… I mean nothing! I just hope that wherever you are in this crazy planet of ours, you are having a good morning, good afternoon, good evening or good night. Always try to enjoy it to the fullest and don’t let nobody fuck it up for you no matter what happens.

On Other People’s Problem Note! From my mother and father’s marriage, my six older sisters and I were born, but I have no brothers. From my father’s cheating side, I have two half-brothers and two half-sisters. I get along with my six older sisters. As to my half siblings, I tried to start a relationship a long time ago with them, but I guess they were not interested, but that’s no biggie to me. You see, the one thing that came naturally to me has been, that I’ve never liked getting involved in Other People’s Problems (OPP) and that specially includes my sisters. The way that I have always looked at it is, that as long as I don’t get involved in other people’s shit, they won’t have a reason, to get involved in my shit. Another thing that I’ve learned in life is, that when people asks for my opinion, they tend to do it, with the intention that I will agree with them or I will say exactly what they want to hear, even if I thought or knew that they were wrong. I have always stayed away from situations like that, because when the shit hits the fan, I don’t want to be blamed for giving out bad advice. The way that I live my life is simple… I don’t fuck with other people’s shit, so others won’t fuck with my shit. It is as simple as that. The thing about me is, that I don’t like drama and or problems in my life. If they do come into my life, trust me, it is only because they found me, not because I went out looking for them. Life is simple, just keep it moving.
