I See What They Did There

Anyone watching “disjointed” on Netflix? If not, it’s a half hour comedy by Chuck Lorre (Two and a Half Men, Mom) filmed in front of a live audience starting Kathy Bates.

Oh, and it’s about a legal cannabis business. And its owner (Bates), as well as her employees.

I won’t go too much into it, because this post is not a review BUT I will say this: I love the Pete character. It is SO spot on.

Anyway, there is a particular character suffering from PTSD. While confiding in another character he talks about being able to cope during the day, but it’s later when he’s home alone when it becomes hardest to cope. Medicated or not.

And I’m here thinking: Man, I know how that feels. It sucks. Being alone and having to like deal with like shit and stuff. (So poetic, I know) (And I had a time like that once. Maybe twice)

And then I started thinking…stoned, of course…Man, if there was like someone out there who found themselves alone having a hard time and just wanted to chat with someone. Shoot the shit to pass some time, I would totally do that for someone. Someone I don’t even know. You know?

I’m a big fan of texting, and email, and DMs, even PMs… Look, what I’m saying is, if you want that… That human connection (NOT SEXTING) (EVEN THOUGH I’M REALLY GOOD AT IT. BUT SERIOUSLY) with someone… I can do that. And if you ended up here (how?!) on my blog, then yes. Let’s talk about coping, or whatever. Find me @xojmo

Or JMo@xojmo.com

I have been told I’m inspirational, but whatever. Back patted.

Otherwise, everyone else should check out disjointed (lowercase on purpose). It’s for mature audiences but not cuz of the weed I don’t think, but rather the use of the word “fucking.”

A final thought

Sitting here, this thought bubbled up: What if I stopped this blog? Just altogether, straight up stopped publishing what I write?

And for the first time ever, that thought entertained me.

It’s not even about what I’m writing – although it recently crossed my mind I should pivot into “Romance at Walt Disney World” type fantasy stuff – but rather about sharing any of my feelings or WORDS with you from now on.

Like, why? What’s my purpose here? Surprise: I don’t have one. So perhaps, after finishing a couple posts I still want to do, it’ll be time to retire from this blog experiment that never truly took off.

It’s safe to say, I thought I was better than I really am. In more ways than one.

Thanks guys,
