I have been nominated by La Sabrosona from My Spanglish Familia to do the 3 quotes in 3 days challenge.
I was going to wait till after Wednesday so I could keep to my posting schedule but my first day of work was exhausting and sucked serious ass (I’m eating my reserve potato chips) so I thought this would be more fun than writing about mental health.
The rules are as follows:
- Thank the blogger who nominated you.
- Share one new quote on three consecutive days on your blog. They can be from anywhere, anyone, or anything.
- On each of the three days, nominate three more bloggers to carry on with the fun! No pressure; nominees are free to decline.
Thank you La Sabrosona!
My quote for today is this:
“I’ve been bawled out, balled up, held up, held down, hung up, bulldozed, blackjacked, walked on, cheated, squeezed and mooched; stuck for war tax, excess profits tax, sales tax dog tax and syntax, Liberty Bonds, baby bonds and the bonds of matrimony, Red Cross, Blue Cross, and the double cross; I’ve worked like hell, worked others like hell, have got drunk and got others drunk, lost all I had, and now because I won’t spend or lend what little I earn, beg borrow or steal, I’ve been cussed, discussed, boycotted, talked to, talked about, lied to, lied about, worked over, pushed under, robbed and damned near ruined. The only reason I’m sticking around now is to see WHAT THE HELL IS NEXT.”
– William Least Heat Moon, Blue Highways: A Journey Into America. He was told it by one of the fascinating characters he met as he made his way across the blue highways (like, on the road map) of America, in a VW Campervan, in the late 70’s/early 80’s.
I don’t have a picture for y’all, so you’ll have to use your imagination. Oh or I could “borrow” one from the internet. This seemed appropriate (because who doesn’t love drooling over aircooled vehicles??)
And I nom nom nominate:
Because I’d love to read the quotes you come up with (but it’s optional of course so you don’t have to).
