One False Move

The newness doesn't feel like it's worn off the world yet. If anything, everything seems even newer, and fresher, and hell, I dunno, just more enjoyable than I can remember it feeling in a long time. And today is, so far, shaping up to be an absolutely capitol day. I think the fact that it started out with free doughnuts helped. I mean, free pastries are always a good thing (BTW, is that right? I mean, plain ones don't have creme filling or anything, but a doughnut is considered a pastry, isn't it?), but free Krispy Kremes? And first thing in the morning, to boot? Magnificent. Added to that, the fact that the rest of my day's work has been lifted off my shoulders in one fell swoop just seems like icing on the cake. And then you add that in on top of all the other good things that have happened to me this week, and I'm starting to think that maybe my karma is starting to pay out.

Of course, I don't really know how I feel about the whole concept of "karma". I thought it was fairly interesting when I first heard about it, but it didn't take long to dismiss it as a load of hooey. I mean, it's nice to believe that the world rewards those who do good things for their fellows, and punishes those who treat other people wrong, but so, so often that's just not the case. The wicked seem to reap the benefits, and the good are left in the dust. At least, that's the conclusion I've come to from observations. I've never actually experimented with trying my hand at being a complete asshole, to see how that works out for me. I've been a bit of a prickus to some people but for the most part, only to people who actually deserved it, and to tell you the truth my heart really wasn't in it anyway. I'm afraid the upbringing that my mother gave me and a healthy diet of Spider-Man and Green Lantern cast me firmly in the role of "good guy" from a very early age.

Still, I'm sitting here at work and I can't stop smiling, so I must be doing something right.
