I’ve come to a point in my life where I say to myself, “It’s way past my bedtime.”
I’m writing this right after I saw Trump’s Apology video, and it’s way past my bedtime.
4 things about his “apology.”
But first, wait. Guys, did Sean Hannity really say that “King David had 500 concubines, for crying out loud” in Trump’s defense…? What’s it with these Trump kool-aid drinkers?
And how can Giuliani, with a straight face, say that “everybody” has infidelity charges…
4: “I pledge to be a better man tomorrow, and will never, ever let you down.”
After I turned a certain age, my dad stopped hitting me (for disciplinary reasons) and started lecturing me and giving me sermons/bible studies re: the things I did/my behavior. I remember pleading with my dad (in my head), “Please, I can’t take this. Just hit me.”
During one of those impromptu sermons, he told me about a man who was an avid chain smoker. His family pleaded with him to quit before it became too late. He lovingly ignored them until he had a medical scare. The doctor warned him that he was playing a dangerous game with his life and that he needs to quit much sooner than later.
With his family’s pleas and concerns, and now with the doctor’s warning, the man was inspired to quit.
He got home, and with zeal and inspiration, made a sign that read Tomorrow, I’ll quit smoking and hung it on top of the front door so that every time he leaves his house, he’ll be reminded of his commitment.
An hour passed since he quit smoking. He was getting fidgety. He couldn’t concentrate. His body was aching for a nicotine fix. After two hours, it was getting worse. He looked up at the sign, Tomorrow, I’ll quit smoking.
“Ah, yes, ” said the man. “Tomorrow. Most definitely tomorrow, I’ll quit smoking.”
And so he went out to smoke.
The next morning, he got up and out of habit headed to the front door to engage in his routine of the morning smoke.
He saw his sign, Tomorrow, I’ll quit smoking.
Tomorrow, he thought to himself. I’ll start tomorrow.
The man’s life was cut short because it was always, tomorrow.
The important and vital changes we need to make in our lives cannot wait until tomorrow. For tomorrow may never come.
The Donald gave himself a great loophole in pledging that he’ll be a better man, tomorrow.
