You never know what worse luck your bad luck has saved you from.”   —   Cormac McCarthy

(It’s true.  You never know!  I’m not going to get Everything happens for a reason on you, but you do have to ask yourself a lot of questions when things seemingly go wrong for you.  Perhaps if you did get out of the house two minutes earlier, or you didn’t have to stop and wait at that red light, maybe you wouldn’t be stuck in traffic, waiting for that five car chain reaction fender bender to clear.  Maybe you would have been one of those five cars, if not for your bad luck.  Be well . . . stay cool and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

You forget what you want to remember, and you remember what you want to forget.”   —  Cormac McCarthy

(No.  No, no, no, no no.  I’ve definitely forgotten things that I’ve wanted to forget.  Like when I was so drunk at my girlfriend’s sorority ball that I told the R.A.’s wife that I always wanted her.  And, that same night I told a friend that she was pretty hot . . . for a fat girl, and I’d probably do her if she lost weight.  I told a few people that they thought they were hot shit, and then I knocked on a number of hotel room doors – where I smelled the unmistakable smell of gangia – saying I was Karl Malden, from The Streets of San Francisco, and that this was a raid!  I had absolutely no recollection of any of this, until my girlfriend told me a few days later.  Even then, I thought she was pulling my leg.  She had to apologize for me quite a lot that night.  I’m lucky that nobody punched me out.  Then there was the night I skipped an entire scene, with the right lines at the wrong time, with a buddy of mine on stage.  He kind of got me back on the right page, after more than a little doing.  I learned not to take pain pills – especially, when they’re not your prescription – before going on stage, that night.  I had totally forgotten that episode, until I saw my buddy at a class reunion a few years back.  We were talking with another theater-rat friend, and she was relating a story about her messing up some lines, when I said:  Thank God that never happened to me.  My friend, who was on stage with me – oh so many years ago – was more than happy to remind me that yes, I had.  See.  That’s what friends are for!  To remind you of the things you’d sooner like to forget.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
