Chance


I have six gas cap keys on my key ring. They all look the same, but are not. I kept losing gas caps, but never got rid of the keys.

I like to play a game at the pump. I feel in my pocket for my keys and make a wish. Now, I know what you are thinking, "That Grunt sure likes his pocket pool!" Well, I grab a gas cap key and if it turns and opens the cap, then my wish is granted.

So, today I'm listening to the recent New York Dolls album and there's this song about creating redemption on the rim of a volcano. I had that song in my head and a wish came to me. I will not say what that wish was, only that I have felt like that most of my life has been fine for helping others but not quite feeling like I was worth a plum nickel. When I finally get something promising on my horizon, I feel real nervous.

This time my wish was serious. I put the key in and I got scared. I know this sounds silly, but I wasn't sure that I wanted to get gas that bad to find out. I took a moment, washed my windshield, checked my fluids, and then came back to the key ring.

It turned.

P.S. I think I should get my keys down to a 50/50 chance. These current odds are stressing me out! But, at my side is God, Jesus, and the Holy Ghost. I'll do fine. (Only a few will get this last part)

What?! You can't NOT tell us what you wished for! That's just cruel.

A pleasant portent, eh Grunt?

Don't look for signs man, just do it. Oh and a comment from me will not be complete without a little verse from the good book, actually paraphrased. Just put the Kingdom first, and all these other things will be added to you."

I am very upset that you did not tell us your wish. You just ruined my day...thanks a lot. LMAO.

My wishes are that love will reign on me and the world. Is that so wrong?

comoox said...

Have you tried just having one key? Or better still putting a note on the one you need?

My wish too-
Nothing wrong with that :)

You know god wants only the best for you. It is in the benevolent nature of deities.
If love starts raining on you and its yellow...
move out of the way.

I think you need to go buy yourself a Lotto ticket.

Did you come up with this game all by yourself Mr. Grunt Man?

Sounds like fun- I wish I had a gas cap key. I'm not sure if I've ever seen one of those things... But I'd still like to have one anyway.

You also take your chances with Gary Glitter, indeed this post as inspired me to belch forth a poem

The boy stood on the burning deck,
His arse against the mast,
He dare not move nor run away
Til Gary Glitter had passed.

But Gary was a wily bird
And tossed the boy a bun,
As the bent to pick it up
He tried to slip one up his bum

But as Garry embarked on this new venture,
He approached the boy far to tender,
The boy drew forth a long sharp knife,
And parted him from his member!
