Everything is personal

I was working on the Automated Check In Machine at my library when two of the bins on the machine filled up at once. I cried out in anger. I took it personally.

There is an all too famous and brilliant bit in The Godfather where Michael says "It's not personal, Sonny. It's strictly business."

Of course it's a brilliant bit of cinema because it's a lie.

Everything is personal.

Everything that touches you, everything you see, everything that ever happens to you your whole life through, it's all personal.

It's just not all against you.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
