Sometimes all we can do is keep our noses down and block out the chaos of the world. It’s perfectly fine to get wrapped up in our daily routines of life and work. It’s ok to pursue the superficial things that we believe will make us happy. We can’t possibly expect to stop what we’re doing and focus on the myriad of strife scattered across the globe. And we damn sure can’t relate.

Maybe if they give us a ‘Text To’ number, we’ll send a few dollars somewhere. But right now we need more toilet paper. And wine. And we have to pick up the kids from piano practice at five thirty.
