690:The Bare Necessities

Wise men in centuries past have mused on the differences between thoughts and desires. Parsed out that fine line between the longings of the heart and the bare necessities which are required for existence.

I myself have pondered on this question. I find that while there are many things I could do without, there are some things which I find absolutely essential. The most unfortunate instances are those when the essential things are difficult to obtain. Unfortunately, this is often the case.

Which is why I’m glad you decided to stop in today. You see, the truth is that there is something I desperately need but which I am entirely incapable of providing for myself. First off, I’m sorry to ask this of you, considering the hell that your life has been lately, and considering all of the difficulties you have been encountering lately. Difficulties which you have assiduously enumerated for the benefit of all concerned parties. Yet in spite of my reticence, I must make a most humble and obliging request of you, one which you, of all people, are capable of seeing through.

Cry me a river.

    “Cry me a river.”

    Brilliant!
    Bravo!

  2. I believe that you will find that river on a peninsula hanging off the north shore of the Black Sea, formerly part of the Ukraine, but recently (and under a dubious process) annexed by Russia. J.
