Shit Head #1


My father once took me to some huge lake to give me a life lesson. He walked along the shore until he found a sizeable rock which he then knelt down and picked up. He called me over and shared the rock between our hands. It was very smooth and cold. After closing his hands over mine, he looked in to my eyes and said, “listen: life is like this rock. When you were born, your mother and I chucked you, hard, in to the air. Eventually, you’re gonna fall in to some massive lake where you’ll stay until the end of time. You’ve gotta decide whether to skip at some point and enjoy your journey down or make a big splash before you disappear.” Then he got up and threw the rock as hard as he could. It hit a bird and we got the hell out of there. I cried for two weeks.
