Dear Divine Metaphysical Powers-that-Be,
Hey there. Yeah, me. Down here. No, the other one. Yeah. That's me. The loud snowdrift wearing purple socks. *ahem* Sorry. Little bit of a joke there. I'll bet your sense of humor is way better than mine...
Okay, so I stopped asking for big stuff to happen in exchange for promises like faith and stuff about 23 years ago. In fact, that's the time that I stopped asking for small stuff, too, and for the most part this has been a good balance. I'm pretty low-maintenance, as far as that stuff goes, I'd be willing to venture a bet.
I mean, if that's allowed. Otherwise, I'd totally frown upon that.
Oh, who am I kidding? We both know that's not true. Gambling just doesn't really interest me.
But I digress again.
So here's the deal. I'm not going to make ridiculous promises and stuff that we both know that I'm not going to keep, and we both know that I'm just a tiny, tiny part of a much bigger plan for much bigger things to happen, really pretty insignificant when it comes right down to it... but that being said, since it's not a secret that in the grand scheme of things my one little life is just a speck of dust in the metaphorical sands of time...
Is it too much to ask for this one little, equally insignificant thing to go right? I mean, not like other things haven't gone right, but I assume that's part of the plan... and maybe this is, too, I don't know, but really... if it's not too much to ask, and honestly, even if it is... I'm not asking to rearrange the cosmic alignment. I just want this to go the right way. And by "right" I mean that I'd like it to turn out in the way that benefits me, and not in that wishy-washy loosely-interpreted "this is for the best in the grand scheme of things" way, but in the way I WANT it to turn out, wherein I get what I want.
I guess that's it - that's the bottom line. I really, really want this to happen. Badly enough to swallow my pride and have this one-sided conversation in which I feel ridiculous. I've been good, really, for the most part. I'm good to other people, mostly. I'd really like to have this for me. Would that really disrupt the rest of the universe so very badly? Just give it some thought, okay?
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Your Pal, Cheers,
