When the world gets in my face

I say Have a Nice Day… Bon Jovi of course

Which is kind of what I’m telling everyone right now when they say “so?”

No news here I’m afraid. Another week of the same. Of course it doesn’t help that there is no one at Hillel to talk to right now. Everyone is on vacation. Everyone with authority that is. So, we hope that on Monday, when we call the school, there will be a powerful figure available to take the call and give us some answers.

And because I really don’t have much to add, I’m going to share the lyrics from “Have a Nice Day”, because Jon hit the nail on the head as usual, and some of the lines are quite appropriate to the matter at hand (bold is mine). You might recognize the album cover from the front of my car.

Why, you wanna tell me how to live my life?
Who, are you to tell me if it’s black or white?
Mama, can you hear me? Try to understand.
Is innocence the difference between a boy and a man?
My daddy lived the lie, that’s just the price that he paid
Sacrificed his life, just slavin’ away.

Ohhh, if there’s one thing I hang onto,
That gets me through the night.
I ain’t gonna do what I don’t want to,
I’m gonna live my life.
Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
Standing on the ledge, I show the wind how to fly.
When the world gets in my face,
I say, Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day

Take a look around you; nothing’s what it seems
We’re living in the broken home of hopes and dreams,
Let me be the first to shake a helping hand.
Anybody brave enough to take a stand,
I’ve knocked on every door, on every dead end street,
Looking for forgiveness,
what’s left to believe?

Ohhh, if there’s one thing I hang onto,
That gets me through the night.
I ain’t gonna do what I don’t want to,
I’m gonna live my life.
Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
Standing on the ledge, I show the wind how to fly.
When the world gets in my face,
I say, Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day.

When The world keeps trying, to drag me down,
I gotta raise my hands, I’m gonna stand my ground.
Well I say, Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day
Have A Nice Day
