During my younger years, I knew I had a good grip on things. As I got older, I realized that I probably knew not much of anything, and it was terrifying. Now I am convinced I know not much of anything, and that’s just the way it is. It’s quite liberating.
A ditzy ex-girlfriend of mine used to tell me to “get a grip” when she was mad at me…hated that expression ever since. Anyone who uses the expression “get a grip” automatically plummets in my mental social hierarchy. “Get a grip?” Naw, how about you get another expression that is actually thought provoking and meaningful and, while you’re at it, you can “get a grip” on deez nuts with your lips. Stupid bitch…lol
@unksol I sent my brother a text as soon as I crushed an egg for the first time, and his only reply was “your poor dick” and I’m starting to think that people think that my fist is either on or off, and that there’s no real control.
Not as much of a grip as Aerosmith did on cranking out hits in the early ‘90’s…7x platinum, #1 on US Billboard charts, 6 singles, 2 Grammy Awards, MTV Best video of the year and the greatest accolade of all: 1 - Weird Al parody(Livin’ in the Fridge)
