Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Today, I was thinking about what’s become of my refuge in the few weeks since Z-Day. First there was Shelly and then came Derik, Felicia, and Carl. Even though Shelly is indirectly responsible for bring the threesome here, she’s actually siding with me this time. Once again, I’ve misjudged her. Although it’s no one’s business, Shelly has been “my girl” since she recovered from her infection. I expect she’ll laugh at my presumption when she reads this, but I need to set the scene for what’s going around here.

To put it bluntly, Derik is a dick. Turns out he’s been coming on to Shelly behind my back ever since he arrived. Although he was discrete at first, he no longer cares who knows. This, despite the fact that Felicia is apparently “his girl.” Shelly has warned me not to cause a scene, that she can handle him.

Do I trust Shelly? Not exactly. But I trust her enough to know if she wanted to mess around with Derik, she wouldn’t let me stand in the way. Why do I put up with Derik, you ask? Well, do you remember when I said these people weren’t exactly bad? Let me rephrase that. Let’s go with something along the lines of they’re not entirely bad. As in they haven’t slit my throat, yet.

Being a coward really sucks. I’d like to say I’ll stand up to them tomorrow and tell them to get out of my home. They have no right to take what’s mine.

Lol. It just struck me that today would have been the presidential election day. I wonder, who would have won? Without an election, is B. O. still president? Is he still alive? Or is the POTUS prowling the White House lawn in search of living flesh? Lucky for the Washington zombies that there’s no truth to the old joke about the living dead needing to eat human brains. They’d certainly have starved by now.

My political philosophy has always been pretty simple. As Einstein said, ““Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Actually, I’m sort of drunk, and I just happen to really like that quote so I wrote it down, and besides, it really fits politics to a tee, now that I think about it.

Backtracking– the saying I was looking for is, “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” I’ve never been able to come up with a better guideline for politics. I can’t say the apocalypse wouldn’t have happened if people had followed that philosophy, but I believe things would sure have been stirred up. I also know this saying ties into what’s going on in my home, but I’m damned if I know how.

I’m certain I’ll regret posting this in the morning, but here I go.

Oh wait. Must sign off.
