"Hmmm," I said out loud, taking a sip from my Pabst. It was sort of ironic that I was sitting next to Johnny, because he is another good example of doing what you love and sticking with it. When Benders burned down a few years ago due to arson, he pretty much lost everything and had poor insurance. In the aftermath, I was impressed with how upbeat he seemed. After more hard work and fund-raising, he rebuilt the bar, and it looks awesome. He is very pleased with the place, and now has an "all's well that ends well" attitude.

Johnny and the bartenders did a round of shots and I hugged him goodbye.

So I suppose the lesson to take from all this is that you must have faith and keep on keepin' on. Climb every mountain, ford every stream. Don't go out of your way to sabotage yourself, but also "to thine own self be true."

Or you could just go home and crawl into bed and watch more Comcast On Demand. If there's one thing I could change about myself, I would watch less cable TV. Then I would have more time to concentrate on other things, like better ways to fail.
