Rating: PG Title: HOW TO COME TO POWER, IN SHORT, EASY STEPS by PAT
I did not become Captain of the Firefly for power. Nope, I took the job because I was lazy. Yep, and not even ashamed of it.
That is the one job I can have without having a weenie, pansy ass telling me what to do, when to do it and how to do it.
Okay, that wasn’t about my laziness but about the hard time I have accepting to take orders. Still, it takes the edge of receiving orders. The heck it does!
So, yes, the next pleasure out of my riff-raff life is the knowledge that I can sleep on my deck, refuse a shipment, eat out of cans and play cards with the locals.
Today, I’m testing some waters… a hidden cove, a lush girl, and no worries in sight! Yes, a bit of laziness, as I said.
Well, that’s my definition of power, individual power, lasting power; to me, anyway.
