I thought I’d post it here, too, just in case anyone actually looks in.
You do not have to write a similar note or to send it to anyone else. You don’t even have to read these.
- I am not a platypus, donkey or squirrel.
- I have not swam across the English Channel.
- I have never started a successful business, if success be measured financially.
- When I was a child, I was never accosted by a crazy guy who tried to rip my head off but then turned out to be a nice guy when he went back on his medication.
- My mother never told me that I was adopted.
- The three things I did not hate as a child were milk, cream-of-wheat and carrot juice.
- I don’t have a very good memory, but I don’t forget faces easily.
- It has never been my goal to pillage neighboring villages.
- I’m not a fan of religion.
- I’m not a fan of TV sports.
- I’m also not a fan of bureaucracy.
- I’m even less a fan of corporate power.
- I was never in the Air Force, the Marines or the Coast Guard.
- I was also never a part of the Pope’s Swiss Guards.
- When I was young, I did not dream of becoming a doctor or a lawyer. Come to think of it, I don’t think being a lawyer is such a great thing even today.
- I do not smoke (anything), and I haven’t smoked anything for a long time. I don’t think smoking is a nice habit, but I don’t condemn those who do to everlasting hellfire.
- I don’t really have the power to condemn anything or anyone to everlasting hellfire, and probably wouldn’t if I did.
- I never caught myself saying “Oooh, I’ve just got to have those!” in a shoe store.
- I don’t understand the allure of shopping for clothes, furniture or jewelry.
- I haven’t earned any money with photography, my first chosen profession, in nearly half a year.
- Nobody I know has – as far as I know – been elected president of Moldova.
- By conviction I am neither a Communist, Socialist, Libertarian, Republican nor Democrat, and I have never been a member of any political party.
- I am not getting younger every day.
- My maternal grandfather never climbed Mt. Everest. On further thought, to the best of my knowledge neither did any of my other family members.
- Despite what some may believe, I’m not anti-everything.
