Life, Shane and the Persuit of Happiness

It's what's on my mind, and yours too. Well, at least that bit about happiness...

If I could just detense my shoulders...If I were'nt so cliche I'd have nothing to write. My mind goes over you like a Reno pawn dealer exmaining a used wedding ring to take in as trade on a cold steel revolver. You've just got to take what you want, the confident man says, but he hasn't listened to the last 10,000 reasons why not to come sorely burning out from his own sickened brain. Hot bullets under your skin can't hurt as much. The wrinkles under your eyes drag along wearily as your disgusted stare sharpens. A changless expression of contempt has found a comfortable place on your face. Purple veins pound your temples and dryness etches your eyes. With the normal tense grip released you can feel a sudden and surprisingly still calmness in your arms. Feeling drunk but completely aware you pick up the fork to test your motor skills. How long will it last? Until the end.
