Open to suggestion

My mother used to tell me, 'If your friends asked you to go jump into the ocean, you would'. And that's how I turned out. Just that my friends haven't asked me to jump into the ocean yet. But I think that's just how my friends like me. I am very easily persuaded. Especially by women. And tonight was no different. Sam took me to dinner, saying chicken rice and salted vegetable soup was just the tonic for a long day at work, and I agreed, even though I knew that she was just hankering for chicken rice and not really concerned about what was really good for me. Then we browsed round the shops, not really looking for anything, but coming across a nice pair of shoes she said she thought she wanted, and which she bought, and which she persuaded me to buy a pair of for myself. Then we browsed some more, not looking for anything else, but coming across the shop that sold Havaianas slippers, where she picked out the pair of slippers identical to the ones she had, and persuaded me to buy a pair for myself. Same pair of shoes, same pair of slippers, but I'm not worried this would lead to something. It's not as if it's as permanent as a tattoo, which I have one, and which is identical to one someone else has, because that someone else persuaded me to have the same one. Nope. Don't mean a thing. Just like when someone else told me some time ago, 'hey, you should start a blog'. havaianas 'l like the pair you have but you should get the pair I have', Sam said

iTunes' party shuffle is playing a copy of: These Foolish Things - Etta James - The Essential Etta James Disc 1, of which I have the original CD and therefore didn't steal music.

Funny you should say that. That was exactly what happened to me. Except it was not into the ocean but off a wall.

Sometimes I wonder how I made it alive this far..
