When I was a kid, I used to love watching pro wrestling. I have not watched in many many years. I don't even know what its like today.
But one of the wonders of the internet/tech in the last 20 years is podcasts. And bunch of the wrestlers from when I was a kid make podcast telling old road/travel stories.

I am going through a fuck of a tough time in my life right now. I lost my brother. My job. My mom is in the hospital.

I throw on these podcasts and listen to these road stories from these guys who actually had the guts to go out into the world and make something of themselves, or chase their dreams. I laugh so much. I am amazed to learn great stories of backstage drama. Sometimes I like to daydream and pretend that I had the guts to do something like that. That I have stories from all over the world, traveling different countries, having world class showdowns in from of crowds of thousands. Its my only stupid little guilty pleasure before getting into my next phone call with insurance, or a doctors office, or a funeral home, or some medical bill.

My life is absolutely a loss. I sincerely wasn't born to have a life, but instead my life is a safety rope for those around me. And the only moments I feel happy is when Im asleep, my phone isn't ringing, and I'm not solving someone's problem. At my age, what brings me happiness is to daydream that I have/lived a life worth living.

I was never a wrestling fan, but who can not love some Randy Savage...

2 days ago there was a bag hanging on my door knob when I got home from my walk and it was a pretty throw comforter. There was just a nice message with it thanking me for always being kind to her. Now I just learned it was from a neighbor that I didn't even think likes me. She's a friend of the bully so I was shocked. It definitely was a day brightener though.

Same here! Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, all the guys. It was fun to watch them perform. :)

That's cool.

Shit! That sucks. Sorry to hear that.

That's awesome! Don't stop finding things to make you laugh!

I hope there is an end in sight for you. You are describing my earlier life. But, eventually everybody died off and now I'm alone. I have gotten rid of most of my responsibilities and things are mostly quite. I still want to sell my house, load up my truck and the trailer I'm building, and hit the road. I wish you well. :)

While I was mopping I told my son to get out and his exit was a very stylish "quirked up white boy with a little bit of swag" dance. Its probably something from tic toc or whatever but it was cute

When I found out the actual reason there was a robot in Rocky 4 was to treat autism.
Oh and just now, when I delivered that fact to you without any further explanation. That was fun.

One of my Spanish students.

During our online class on Zoom, he saw my youngest kitty (Tachibana) and started to have a convo with her in his very beginner Spanish, so you can imagine how hilarious that was, but also super sweet. At the end I teached him some extra words to speak with hispanic cats lol! :ROFLMAO:
