The Replacements – Sunday’s Song Lyric 

(photo credit to Bonnie Schiffman, Reprise Records, 1989)

“Look me in the eye and tell me, I’m satisfied.  Look me in the eye, unsatisfied.” – Paul Westerberg of The Replacements  “Unsatisfied,” from the album Let It Be, 1984

Why this particular lyric?  Hey, I get grumpy sometimes.  I’ll get over it.  Anyway…

Sometimes life hands you a bag of crap and you have to figure out how to turn it into fertilizer.  (Think positive.)  Sometimes no matter how hard you try, you’re stuck with the bag of crap and you have to figure out where to put it so it doesn’t stink up the place.  (Learn coping mechanisms.)  Remind yourself that eventually, even the biggest turds dry up and blow away.  (Time heals all wounds.)  In the meantime, break out the scented candles.  (Denial, denial, denial!)  Finally, quit whining.  (No one likes a whiner.) Some people have truckloads of crap to deal with.  So you’re unsatisfied.  It could be a whole lot worse.

      1. Has 201 started? I know Writing 101 has. I really wanted to take them both, but I knew I wouldn’t have time. I’ve been a bit “off the grid” for the last week. My stepdaughter’s wedding was Saturday in a town about 2 1/2 hours away from where I live. We were there all last week doing final preparations and family stuff. I’m just now catching up with emails and such – which is why I’m finally getting around to reading and commenting on things posted a week ago. 🙂
        I’m bummed to not be in Writing 101 with the rest of the Blogging 101 “gang”. :-/
