Mean Angry Torso


Just yesterday, a tennis friend (who I soundly beat) let me know that he and his partner have been talking about me. They were concerned about my mental health. They both thought it would do me some good to get out of the house.

I growled, "like where? a bar?". I used to frequent bars, but lately I am turned off by them AND their patrons. I see squishy people everywhere who don't have physical fitness as their priority. Does your ass make tsunami waves when poked? When squeezed, are your arms squishy like a woman? Eww. Yes, I'm a prick.

When sexting, I see all sorts of torsos. Rather than judge the torso on merits of exercise and diet, I do something strange. I imagine nips as eyes and belly buttons as mouths. I look at the "face" so I can peer into one's true self... their soul. (try it!)

When I look at my torso, I always see mean and angry. It makes me shiver. Is my inner soul mean and angry? Also, why do I always project my values onto others? What makes my values superior to yours? Hmm... something to ponder.

This is odd, man.

I would bet your soul is not mean and angry. Yet, you seem to be working real hard to get there.

Years ago, I happened across Brettcajun, via LargeTony. It felt like a super cool gift. Something I didn't even know I wanted until it was there in front of me.

Growing up on a ranch located just beyond Middle-of-Nowhere, CA, I've always had trouble finding other guys-who-like-guys who have also worked with horses, who also like race cars, who enjoy playing sports, and who love college football and tennis.

Brettcajun was, as southern friends would say, "good people," and reading about your life was time somewhat well-spent.

I started reading you again recently, having been out of the loop for a couple of years or so. It was almost like whiplash, with me thinking, "wtf?!? has happened to this poor guy?"

You used to be (or write like) a lovable asshole, a prick sometimes, but a prick with a heart. "Good people."

Now, I'm not sure so sure.

The list of people that turn/piss you off grows longer and longer. And, dude, you've become 'righteously judgmental' to a degree that even a Southern Baptist would be impressed.

If you want to become a mean and angry, defensive and judgmental, prick, it's your life, but why would you want to?

Brett, you're way better than this crap you've been slinging lately, and you've got years of blogging archives to prove it. There's nothing wrong with being a nice guy.

This is a bizarre post. Is it just an excuse to show off shirtless? You don't need an excuse. If you want to show what you have going on, then do it. Nothing wrong with a post that says, "I'm feeling good about the way I look and I want you guys to see it." Plus there's no need to tear others down to feel good about yourself.
