Life is funny.
There is this guy I know, he figures he has it all figured out. He dropped out of school and went straight to Alberta. Now he is a big shot working in the Tar Sands. The guy doesn’t have the sense to bless himself. He tries to encourage younger kids to drop out of school and follow in his footsteps.
The other day my little guy came home with plans for the future. He is only in grade five, but when he gets older, he wants to follow in this guys footsteps. The guy is his uncle, and all the little guy hears from his grandparents is how fortunate and lucky his uncle is. He worships the guy.
Karma is funny.
In July, Mr. Big Shot hurt his back at work, and hasn’t been working since. Oil Town is an expensive place to live, especially since Mr. Big Shot recently entered a relationship with a woman who has four kids. I hear you, you are saying “FOUR KIDS”??? See, he has it all figured out. Grade ten education, living on God knows what, with no future.
I told you life was funny. Want to know something even funnier? I know you do.
The entire time Mr Big Shot was working, he constantly made fun of his sister, my lady, for wasting her time getting a degree. Who is laughing now?
