Let it go

Two traveling monks reached a river where they met a young woman. Wary of the current, she asked if they could carry her across. One of the monks hesitated, but the other quickly picked her up onto his shoulders, transported her across the water, and put her down on the other bank. She thanked him and departed.

As the monks continued on their way, the one was brooding and preoccupied. Unable to hold his silence, he spoke out. "Brother, our spiritual training teaches us to avoid any contact with women, but you picked that one up on your shoulders and carried her!"

"Brother," the second monk replied, "I set her down on the other side, while you are still carrying her."

I know this is supposed to be profound. But I'm on Spring Break.

It so sounds like a story about the DL: and the two men kept walking.

Or a different ending to Brokeback M.

Keguro said...

Even me, that "Beautiful Mind" business confuses me.

Wasn't he the genius who was crazy, like not even cuckoo, headless jogoo crazy?

Oh dont we all walk around pretending that we have a problem with something while it is us who are the problems... (did that come out right?)

Aco - hmm - (abandons thought)

LOL x100 on keguro's mind - it is lovely - and this gets us back to that mad scientist debate, right Aco?

Enjoy the weekend guys

Wsup Aco. Sometimes it's not too easy letting go, as my good friend Jay Z found out first hand in "Song Cry":

Sh*t I'm a man with pride, you don't do shit like that
You don't just pick up and leave me sick like that
You don't throw away what we had, just like that
I was just f*cking them girls, I was gon' get right back
They say you can't turn a bad girl good
But once a good girl's gone bad, she's gone forever..
I'll mourn forever
Sh*t I gotta live with the fact I did you wrong forever.


Wow. Jigga's off the chain.
