It's a life skill to be able to focus on the necessary...evidently I do not possess this skill.

Advice giving. Pfft..easy. What’s really important is remembering the advice you get given. In fact, I remember this one time…


A wise man once said…well, I say a wise man, what I mean is a drunk man. Anyway, a wis…actually, you know what? I’m not even sure it was a man, it may have been one of those other ones, you know..what are they called? Oh yeah, female, but I’m not sure, I mean, I was pretty drunk at the time too. But the point still stands, a wise person once sai…Ah! No! My mistake, they didn’t say anything, they wrote it down on the back of a coaster. I remember because their handwriting was terrible, It was really shaky, barely legible in fact. Come to think of it, that was probably to do with the copious amounts of alcohol that had been consumed, I mean, I never saw that person write anything when sober so the handwriting could have usually been perfect for all I know, like a monk or something. Ok, anyway, I think I’ve got it straight now:

A wise/drunk man/woman once said/wrote: “focus on the necessary”.


Actually I’m starting to doubt it now. It was something like that anyway, to be honest I was a bit distracted by the really cool hat they were wearing. Ah that hat. Love a good hat.
