It Just So Happens.

I had always thought that there was some type of Divine order to this chaos. I always wanted to believe that everything happened for a purpose. Well, yesterday I , a product of the Center of the Universe, a master of drivel and snivels, the --well, you get the point. I, Cedar Street Kid, unlocked the secret of the ages, the fountain of eternal wisdom, the answer to man's thousands of years of asking "Why?". None of the brilliant minds of ages past could find this secret, and they included Plato, Socrates, Einstein, and the Law Offices of Crosby, Stills, Nash and sometimes Young.
Now, if you are ready for the secret that will change your life, I am ready to share it with you, my trusted friends and readers.

So, why is the world the way it is, and what is the secret of the universe? Drum roll---------

IT JUST HAPPENS. There, you got it. The secret so long sought ofter the man and women throughout the ages. Let me explain further.

Case #1--How many times have you heard this expression or read it in the papers." Who happened to be black" You see, things can sometimes just change suddenly, and for no apparent reason other than things just happen. Let's say you are lilly white and are walking down the street one day and minding your own business. All of sudden , and out of nowhere, you look down and your skin is now dark. And poof, there you have it. Now, you just happen to be black.

Case#2--You are walking down the street, minding your own business, and suddenly a great wind comes up and lifts you up and sets you down in the middle of South Central LA, and there is a gang war going on. You are shot in the exchange of gun fire, and the cops who are investigating realize that you " just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time"
There you go. the secret of life at work again.

Case#3--Imagine this conversation. " You know, George, don't you? Well, he is a chauvinist pig, and, well, this is funny, he got a new job, and his boss just happens to be a woman."
Hm, now I won't go in to graphic detail of how this biological transformation happened. but can you imagine this poor guy, minding his own business, and poof-all of a sudden he is a woman? You see, it just so happens.

So, now my friends, you know the secret of life. So, quit struggling, quit fighting the waves, relax, and let life take you where it will. The secret of life? IT JUST SO HAPPENS.

For Pete's sake!
