Most of my criminal past is behind me. Most of it. I have a skill-set. And I may, one sunny day, exercise that skill set from time to time. Part of it is curiosity. Can I get away with it? Have I still got it, or am I losing my touch.
I know. I know. Some folks who know me now probably wouldn’t believe the things I’ve done. Some have suspected it all along. So, I’m setting the record straight and bringing the truth to light.
Jaywalking. I’m a serial jaywalker. Compulsive, really. I just have this…thing in my brain that drives me to cross the street wherever I’m at. Walking up to the crosswalk? Pfft. Ain’t nobody got no time for that.
“Donnie,” you say. “You hardened criminal-cool dude, you. Aren’t you afraid you’ll be arrested?”
I guess now that I’ve posted this to the internet, it complicates pleading the fifth. Or as Dave Chappelle would say, “one, two, three, four, FIF!”
Matthew 27:12 (CEV) “And when the chief priests and leaders brought their charges against him, he did not say a thing.”
Sometimes the hardest thing in the world is to keep silent.
Jesus was perfect. In every situation, in every argument, He was on the right side. If ever there was someone who deserved to stand up and speak His mind, or tell it like it is, or give someone a double portion of ‘here’s the truth and you can get some,’ it was Him. But even Jesus didn’t fight every fight or argue every point.
There are some fights worth fighting, and there are some that aren’t. Choose wisely.
