…Ali of thoughts
Have you ever wondered what someone else was thinking? Mostly you look at them and their facial expression and you semi-immediatly know what they are thinking. You go to a fast food place with your kid and you look up at the menu and you look over to your kid and you see the smile from ear to ear and eyes wide open. We all know what that means.
People are very similar in many ways and the brain is no different. Yes they come in different colors, sizes and matter. But, they all develop differently with age, exercise and feeding. There are also other factors such as sports and accidents. Football should switch to inflated/balloon helmets and stop direct hits at the line of scrimmage. It is a tough guy game but, if you don’t learn the dangers then they will outsmart you. #Ali
In junior high school I was bussed to the other side of town. On the first day I got in a fight. I was winning when I got struck from behind. From then on everyone wanted to prove themselves and fight me. Some won and some lost. I know how Mahamad Ali felt. One day hanging out behind the gym I walked up to a couple guys. And one of ’em says ‘hey run’. Without thinking I started running and lord to behold a rock hits me in the head. #Ali
Then there was the U.S. Navy where we had a little coming home party. I was about to leave and out of NOWHERE this fellow shipmate co-cocked me. I think I passed out. #Ali
Then there was the time I went to Baltimore to watch a baseball game. Afterward I decided to take a walk. These two guys were coming at me smiling from ear to ear and as they walked past…one of them punched me in the face and knocked me down. #Ali
You won’t believe this one, but, anyway…I was walking with a friend after drinking at a bar in Manhattan. My friend said RUN! And I said ‘what?’ and a van pulled over. The passenger jumped out and hit me over the head with a baseball bat. I woke up the next morning in a hospital. The Doc kept trying to xray my head. But, not knowing where I was or what happened…I kept hiding the x-ray plate under my mattress. #Ali
Another time at a bar in Fairfax, VA I got in a fight in the parking lot. This guy was sitting on my chest and started banging my head on the asphalt. #Ali
My coiffeusse said my head looked like a road map. The point is: too much head damage can effect your thinking. I think.
Then there are the effects of alchohol on the brain. They say my father and grandfather both had alzheimer’s symptoms even though it wasn’t known at the time. They both drank alot. With the nut/tree reference; I’m in a lot of trouble. #Ali
