My time is precious. I have wasted far too much of my limited life on people who aren't worthwhile. I simply cannot afford to do that as I grow older. I've learned enough through trial and error about whom I must avoid.
I do not wish to meet jackals, hyenas, troglodytes, psychic vampires, fools, idiots, mental defectives, ding-dongs, ding-a-lings, morons, losers, idiots, numbskulls, arrested development adolescents, and others of their ilk.
I sure do love living in San Francisco. It's hard to reconcile that with my desire to avoid insanity but I'm always up for a challenge. :-)
