Life is life is life.

The History Boys is a play by Alan Bennet which was adapted into a movie back in 2006. There was one thing that stuck with me.. A quote about history which Rudge, one of the characters said;

How do I define history? It's just one fuckin' thing after another.

And that.. perfectly sums up what I think life is. A series of events which sometimes overlap. It's not necessarily a bad thing, it's just a practical way of viewing life. I can always compare it to other things - rollercoasters being the most common one, or maybe a box of chocolates (thank you, Forrest Gump), but at the end of the day it is indeed - one fuckin' thing after another.

It's a great catchphrase. But do you want to know really defines my fucking history? Several thing happening at the same time.

Example?

Example!

Attentively driving my car at the highway. A Police car overtaking me, signalling I have to stop ( for speeding, I assumed). And being in a state of emergency because of a bladder almost bursting ( the reason for driving fast as possible to get to a place where I will be able to pee decently).

That really is deep shit. That's the story of mankind.

history? a subject in school/class where you went "aww" or "what?!" and still end up getting a bad mark for not remember any of the story told.. ^^

why? did you make any history? or is it on the making? xD
