However, I guess I will go back to an old stand by. When I start thinking things are unfair I'll "count my blessings" so to speak. Put in perspective. After all, having a job that is screwing with me and what I think is a very well earned promotion is a way better problem to have then say, not having a job. And now, so many people are in the second boat. But then, don't even get me started on the whole state of things, I mean jerks out there making billions while so many are scraping by? I just have to hope that someday, even if it's after all this crazy mess is said and done down here, it will all sort out. That and I sometimes whisper to myself that Jesus is totally for equal rights for twinsies. Because he is. And he will give me lollipops, you just wait and see.

The Illusion of Fairness
Is anyone else out there obsessed with things being "fair"? Maybe this just is part of growing up, and the part I am sooo not wanting to learn, even though you hear it over and over and over: life is just simply not fair. Fine, I could deal with that, but geeze louise couldn't it be a little bit balanced? I think where my neurosis comes from is when I was growing up, with a twin, my parents really did try to keep things as equal as possible. I guess they learned early, bring home two lollipops from the bank, get two stickers at fairs, etc. And when anything was the least bit unfair, from my perspective, I was quick to scream: equal rights for twinsies! Something I still keep screaming. Except, the big bad scary world doesn't always remember to bring home two lollipops.
