"I know it don't thrill you, I hope it don't kill you"
Sometimes the jukebox is perfectly synchronised to my mood. I don't tell it where to start, it just knows.
It is important that my mood is enhanced, as I am feeling a little despondent of late.
The facade of over inflated self-worth, cynicism and cast iron certainty which I craftily project to disguise my overwhelming insecurity and terminal lack of confidence can, funnily enough, sometimes work so well that I forget it's all a front. Then something happens to pull me up short and slap me round the face with the facts. "Haha", the inner voice cackles, "you almost had you fooled. Well, now wake up!"
I've been thinking about the future and checking the vacancies. In my darker moments I wonder if I could ever fool anyone else for long enough to get another job.
