'the adventures of a thirty-ish university graduate' or, alternately and perhaps much more aptly: 'as mad as a barking fox'

mr wizard, get me the hell out of here!

i read magazines in bed for an hour this morning when i awoke. there was an excerpt from an upcoming novel entitled Goat. it's about a young man who was kidnapped and then brutally beaten, and how he had to cope with life after that. it engrossed my mind.

i thought for a bit. how do these things happen? how do people who are barely adults inflict such horrible and evil pain on others? how do these same barely-adults manage to overcome the trials and tribulations set before them?

i guess it's because deep down, we inherently know that we possess a strength that rivals nothing else on this planet.

i contemplated these thought for a bit.

"woah." that inner voice piped up. "there's that same thought that everyone else has at least once in their lives."

so much for originality.
