People have asked me ever since I created this blog “Uh Sean, why the hell has your blog been named Instant Tragedy: Just Add Water”
Well, now I must give the details on how and why the blog was named as such.
I’ve always believed in many things, luck, love and hope. I’ve always have hope and belief in my friends, family and loved ones. As I looked at the world, I saw the glass half full while the world saw it as half empty. However there always was something lurking near by.
So I have tried to keep an optimistic attitude toward everything that changed after my wife of six years left me. I became a very bitter man. I did not understand the bad luck and fortune that had started to accompany me. I saw not the good in life but the more realistic in life. I saw the homeless that I had once pitied as someone that I could be. I saw the negative in anything. I had let my divorce affect who I was and what I saw in life. That was a tragedy.
When I was at work one day I was reminded of a band that I had managed or saw named Tragedy, which played in Lubbock a long time ago. We were having all sorts of problems on the (WORK COMPUTER SYSTEM) and we were waiting for A”V Tech support to call back. Then it started to rain. It was the beginning of a long day, and I told Damon (who has a great web page at http://www.dpcure.com go visit his blog) “Ah Instant Tragedy: Just Add Water” and he started to laugh asking me where that came from. “This is like some bad dream, some instant meal where all you do is add water and POOF, it’s done”
So from that day forward any time I mentioned something going wrong, it was an Instant Tragedy where you Just Add Water.
And that my friend… is mostly the story.
