my vote's for Bettie Page
The MLB baseball game was played a few nights ago. I missed it.
I’ve been a huge baseball fan my whole life. Still, I missed the MidSummer Classic this year.
I played a lot of baseball when I was young. I was pretty good too.
Got to be part of a tryout for a Cincinnati Reds scout when I was 15. Well, me and 20 other boys.
Still, it was one of the most exciting days of my youth. Back before I truly discovered the joys of the bedroom.
I could make excuses about the game … In all honesty, I just forgot. Perhaps I’m getting old? Yes, I suppose I am.
It may be July 14th on the calendar, but I’m still celebrating the 13th. “Today” was my birthday.
I’ve got everything I might want. Have been blessed with experience.
I’ve lived my life without many of the compromises other men make. Perhaps I’ve made a few of my own that other’s didn’t.
That’s the cost of being individualistic. It’s a price I’ll gladly pay.
And that’s my gift to you, dear reader. Some birthday advice.
Endeavor to live your life without regrets. Don’t be afraid to truly march to the beat of your own drum. The things (and people) who stand between you and being authentic are likely not the most important things. If they are, perhaps it’s time to re-examine your path.
And don’t forget to vote for Bettie Page on next year’s all-star ballot.
