We just wrapped the luckiest weekend of the year.
At least, lots of folks discuss the Luck O the Irish right around this time of year, don't they?
I mean, I suppose it's a luckier time to be Irish than to be, say, a Roman dictator or perhaps a Russian Czar in mid to late March, yes? #EtTuBrute #Bolsheviks
Speaking of getting stabbed in the back by your best friend ...or worst enemy ...or the person who turns out to be a little of both - it's really not that much fun.
I mean, when you think someone is above board and a straight shooter and even a pal of yours and then find out he not only threw you under the bus but also left it running and in neutral so it'd be easier to back over you repeatedly? Just ouch. #ITrustedYaDog
Try, as I'm going to very hard to, not to hold onto the sadness that comes with acknowledging the fact that someone you thought had your back was digging a dagger into it all along. Because, even though your knee jerk will be to hate 'em like poison from here to Kalamazoo; letting anger simmer is like keeping a pet mosquito under your shirt all summer.
It's just going to keep biting you over and over again; and only you, Capsice?
Oh well. Live and learn but don't let it sour you on the peeps who really DO look out for your best interests. "Cause fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, you're a mean rotten so and so. (But I'll probably still forgive you if you apologize and mean it; I'm sort of a dope that way.)
Then again, be a true pal from the word go and I'll gladly hand you my pot of gold every day of the week and twice on Sunday, yo.

Ps 84:5 Blessed are those who dwell in your house, O Lord; they never cease to praise you. Gospel Mt 1:16, 18-21, 24a Jacob was the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary. Of her was born Jesus who is called the Christ. Now this is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about. When his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found with child through the Holy Spirit. Joseph her husband, since he was a righteous man, yet unwilling to expose her to shame, decided to divorce her quietly. Such was his intention when, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home. For it is through the Holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her. She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins." When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took his wife into his home.
