I’m torn.

My investments are tanking but the Yankees are totally dominating MLB.

On balance I call that a win. Shows you how screwed up my priorities are.

Kim doesn’t need to know about any of this, by the way.

Speaking of winning (hat tip to Charlie Sheen), just as the Yankees keep finding ways to win, I keep finding ways to be happy. I mean, there’s usually something going right. If not, that’s what drugs and alcohol are for.

I know that’s a bit simplistic but the formula has always worked for me.

Truth is my entire life model has always revolved around finding ways to be happy, whatever that means to you. I can’t imagine why anyone would want to live any other way.

You do realize that I’m actually talking about long term happiness, not instant gratification, right? Big distinction.

People tend to get wrapped up in things they can’t control and do next to nothing about things they can control. That’s because it’s way easier to bitch about Trump and Biden on Twitter than to work hard on important stuff.

On the other hand, John Lennon was right when he wrote, “Whatever gets you through the night, it’s alright, it’s alright.”

Sometimes it’s better to grab a brewsky and some popcorn and enjoy a ballgame or a movie than to obsess over politics and inflation.

Long ago I looked back over my life up to that point and made this observation: all the times I was having fun when I should have been working never made a damn bit of difference.

Of course that only works if you’re an overachiever with a strong work ethic and a sense of priority. If not, you’re Hunter Biden.
