Fools Won’t And Dead Men Can’t

I’m bartending, there’s a lot of people in the house, but few drinkers. I’m cleaning up the bar, I see what looks like a fortune from a fortune cookie in front of me. Of course, I read it. Who wouldn’t? Maybe it’s the thing that helps me figure it all out.

It says, fools won’t and dead men can’t.

Wow. I actually like that and haven’t heard that before.

Won’t what? Well…a lot of things.

Make changes in life that need changing because of fear.

Won’t. Won’t go up to that girl and talk to her.

Won’t do anything damn it because they fear failure.

Dead men can’t because they can’t do anything. It’s all looming in our future, isn’t it? Then we can’t…and we won’t.

I have to say, I’m a lot of things, but I do. When I do something, I go after it to the end of the world. There’s no won’t about me. There’s no giving up.

That’s one of the things you can do, that you have under your control. THAT YOU CAN TRY. So there’s no won’t. You will.

And I’ll leave you with this. When you start, why would you stop? WHY?????
