Serenity Prayer with a Twist

Postby Marc L » Tue Aug 10, 2010 4:51 pm

God, Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I can not change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to hide the dead bodies of those people I had to kill because they pissed me off.

And also, help me to be careful of the toes I step on today
as they may be connected to the butt
that I may have to kiss tomorrow!!

I can neither confirm or deny that that made me chuckle in any way, shape or form. :)

It's good to be able to laugh about my crazy stuff like this - just so I am not laughing away a possible real issue instead of truly dealing with it and I am not really entertaining those ideas to the point that I may act on them.
(You know like in my imaginative land, I picture some newer guy, that just started the steps acted on this, would only later find out around - oh say, step 8 or 9 - that he would just wind up digging up the bodies he hid & turning himself in! ...Guys digging away mumbling curses under his breath cause he feels a bit jerked around, "Freakin ..wisdom to hide the bodies.. grr.. and THEN make a list of of all persons we had harmed? How was that suppose to work out?! Hope they got prison meetings where I'm goin.") <--- That is me fictitiously painting the other side of the comical story.

Fiction can be fun. :D

God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
and the eyesight to tell the difference.

God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change
Courage to change the one I can change,
And wisdom to know it’s me.
