The rest of the troops had a big laugh over this since
they knew I meant, .”un-consciously.” when I said, .”sub-consciously..”
Uh oh! — they just got an even larger chuckle over that one,
Since they easily recognized the attempt to cover up one lie with yet another one.
Well — Hey! guys! — gimmie a break! — it’s just civil realty we’re talking about here.

Any man’s mind can, within itself, make everybody else in the world look bad;
but then again, so can a lion– a zebra, physically.

why you began the journey.

(One out of three ain’t bad in anybody’s league.)

Critical thoughts and hostile emotions that are not necessary for physical survival are but hobbles on the hooves of a horseless headman.
