Expectations are Premeditated Resentments

"A Nod Is as Good as a Wink... to a Blind Horse"
- Rod Stewart

I love listening to expatriates living in Guatemala, it is an insane asylum, every conversation is a "Catch 22."



A Catch 22 is a no-win situation… or
Maybe life is a just a test, just one big temptation.
"Lead us not into temptation, we will find our own way."

Panajachel, Guatemala

STEP ONE:
Expat says something,

STEP TWO:
I listen.

STEP THREE:
I nod my head.

STEP FOUR:
I self-talk, saying to myself,
"Andy, keep your mouth shut."



STEP FIVE:
I think to myself,
"If I say nothing, they will assume I agree."
"If I say something, they will know I disagree."

STEP SIX:
Knowing I am in a no-win situation, I say,
"I like Pizza."

A wink is a good as a nod to blind horse."

"A Nod Is as Good as a Wink... to a Blind Horse"
Crazy is never boring.
