the world cup.

are you watching the world cup? you know, the game where men run relentlessly for an hour and a half and only score one goal? well just imagine how happy they are when they do. what happens when a goal is scored? pandemonium breaks out. yelling and screaming and jumping up and down. traffic stops and horns blare out and fists are raised and people just lose thier minds.
try doing that as you walk to your car in the morning. it doesn`t matter that people are watching......they`ve had thier suspicions all along. run out the front door and jump up and down and yell and scream and laugh for 15 seconds like you just scored a goal in the world cup.........the winning goal.
and then get in your car and go to work..........smiling.

have i done it? oh yes. i was driving in my car on the highway listening to led zeppelin and i was driving with my knee and drumming along to the beat and two girls in a car beside me caught the energy. we all smiled and, well, i think things are just better if you dare to wake yourself up with good feelings.
the thrill of the memory of thrills is the way to more thrills.
