“Hey Santa, all I want for Christmas this year is an early present; Santa, please help the Seattle Seahawks kick the shit out of the Arizona Cardinals today.”
I swear to god that was my very first thought upon waking at 5:10 am, then it melded into, “Oh I better go pee” so, I arose to take care of business, quickly glancing at the clock and doing the math in my head, I said out loud “only 14 hours and 10 minutes to go before kickoff, hell yeah”
While peeing, I questioned my constant use of the phrase "I swear to god” its illogical, as I’m very ambivalent toward the existence of such a being, so swearing to god holds no real objective truth for me, as the relation to god is subjective to my reality. Saying it also does not signify if I’m being honest and sincere at all. I have concluded that when I say, “I swear to god” I'm using it as great adverbial adjective thingy in attempting to make what I say come across with both the passion and the force of the reality I feel at the moment.
However, it is clear that I need to reconsider my use of the phrase “I swear to god” and I also use the phrase, "god damn it” I say “god damn it” a lot, and I mean it, literally I want "it" to be damned, whatever "it" is.
Wow… I evoke the name of god a lot in my daily life, which is somewhat disturbing.
Mmmmm... I will have to rethink this obvious self hypocrisy later, plus the whole asking Santa to help the Seahawks win today's game, may also need a rethinking, but I will put my judgment on hold for that one, until after the game.
