Every Story I Read – This is not a real excerpt from a news source. I was going to do yet another post about people getting arrested for drugs on Cape Cod and being all around idiots. Then I realized something. Maybe I should write this one from a different angle.
Another post about how everyone is on drugs? Nope. I am sick of writing about this shit.
Cape Cod is a hotbed for heroin? Everyone on The Cape is addicted?
Well where is it all? To read the news you’d think everyone here is strung out.
But I look out my window and I hear birds chirping. I see people laughing. Sunsets setting. If drugs define us then I don’t know us.
It seems like bad news is the only news these days. What about the rest of it?
What about the beautiful lady who smiled at me at the store today? What about the dude who held the door for me and said that it was “his pleasure”? Where is that guy’s headline?
Oh I forgot, they are all addicted to something.
Why do we talk about the fuck ups everyday? They aren’t at dinner with us. They aren’t picking up your kids from school because you had to work late, but someone did, and they weren’t on drugs.
But we should be talking about them you say? These addicts. They are our brothers and our sisters.
We should love them. Help them. The Real Cape is about not judging them and doing the best we can for them.
That’s cool. I dig that.
But if we are going to do that, then let’s do it for everyone. I hate that news is always bad news, and I realized I’m part of the problem. So this post isn’t going to be about all the problems on The Cape. This post isn’t for the douche bags.
