Phobos (fear)



Invented in the summer of 1964 by an eight year old San Diego elementary school Boy named Don who needed to find a new name that none of the bullies would recognize. The popular insult names at that time were Wimpy, from the "Popeye the Sailor" cartoon and Pussy from the obvious. Wussy and Wuss kept them confused for a short time and gave the abused a short victory over the bullies. In the beginning Don actually had them convinced it was a compliment. By 1972 it had become a real common word at Claremont High School and was later memorialized in the 1982 movie "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" that characterized those people at Claremont High.
Youre a Wuss

It’s 10:15 on a Monday, which is not too early or too late and the radio’s playing songs that say all the opposite things of what you want; and the phone’s running slow and there are things to be done in such ways that make a Monday seem too inadequate a day; Thinking isn’t fast, doing is so less faster, but you know you just have to get up and go be rad or something, as if the universe is going to cease noticing how hard you’ve been working and will never retrieve that check you so much deserve; And have you noticed how comebacks never taste how you imagined them to taste, and how easy it still is for the lack of incentive in his eyes to bend your mustered up gut? What liars his eyes are, what a douche they make of you, what a pang on your most sincere apologies and your most elaborate explanations; He is a constipated fool, fear; Having you badger, having you miss things that are not of the season yet; Are you a Wuss darlin’, are you a freakin’ wimp? Where have all your soldiers gone, and where are all your given fucks? Getting up is the farthest you’ll go today, but no-one can say you didn’t. And that’s not fear, that’s not fear_

Yep, today does seem to be too inadequate a day.

In slow motion today, so I'll just let it be.
Happy Monday, baby.
