#Age is just a number.
A number is just a construct.
A construct is just a concept.
A concept is a personal idea of justification.
A justified idea is an excuse.
An excuse is a defense.
A defense is built on experience.
Experience comes from your age.

“Why are you giving me a hard time?”

Write something.
It doesn’t work like that.
You claim to be so clever-
Stop. Give me a second.
You’re not talented at all, are you?
Shut up, brain. I can’t be #creative on command. I need inspiration.
We need to eat, sleep, drink. Inspired?
“Sleepy wet burger...”
Oy

Gotta change some facts. Disturb some truths. They don’t want to hear from some schmuck from the boring part of Southern California. That’s not inspiring. I need a background with more international flair.

“Where were you born?”
“#Ontario, CA.”

It’s not a lie.
