behold, the pride cycle:
prosperity? well, it was only a scrabble game, but i was ridin' pretty high on the hog after my big win last night. pride? affirmative. shamelessly so. rhymes with "yes." destruction and suffering? i'd say today's fender bender (totally my fault) was very light on suffering (praises be) but adequately destructive on my poor car.
how long have i been hearing this lesson in sunday school? *skulking off, tail between my legs* i'll have a super-sized order of steaming hot humility with an ice cold glass of repentance, please.
