    Mi Vida, you are my hero. The only thing that kept me sane in Mi Vida Loca was a jaded sense of mockery and detachment. What are the options when you have to hide a loaded weapon from your own mother? She has the same amount of sanity as a bowl of Cocoa Puffs.
    Believe me, I get it! LOL We don't have guns in my home for a reason. (well there are hunting guns out in the garage locked up but that would just be to much of a hassle.

    Honestly though I just don't get where pessimism gets you. I have found that a lot of the pessimistic people I have met have had a pretty good life. (by their own admission). So I just don't get it. If I can have a severely crappy life and have a good outlook, so can you!

    From one vida loca to another, I get it. I am not a religious person, so it's a bit harder seeing the bright side of wrongdoings, or people for that matter, when you believe in the end that person gets a free ride of acting like a piece of garbage. Ugh. I hope I don't sound like I'm complaining. I swear I'm not.

    Definitely not the first time someone has called me that. I had a friend who had Papa Roach's Last Resort as my ringtone. Um, couldn't it have been I'm Walking on Sunshine?
