today i was reminded of an old friend who always said the key to a happy life is being the big fish in a small pond. fuck that. How can you be truly happy knowing your greatest accomplishments are just piss in a puddle? More to the point, how can you be happy without earning the respect of people you respect?
thats the problem with small ponds. if you’re truly the ‘big fish’ then all the little fish around you are just toadies & sycophants, kneeling to your greatness but they would just as soon kneel to a velvet elvis. Fuck this little shit town and all the little fish climbing up my tail just because they want to ride my ass out of here. Surprise, my ass isn’t going anywhere, except straight to the bottom
