Dear Common Sense,
I'm sorry if the overly-smart people of the world voted you off the island. Or made you feel in any way, shape, or form like you were not welcome here.
We miss you.
The average-Joes of the planet more than miss you. We need you.
We miss the way you would laugh and retort if someone razzed us about something. We don't love this new way of seeking immediate offense and telling the authorities, the social media audience and anyone within earshot how offended we are by this slanderous barb.
We miss the way you would jump into any argument and handle it like a moderating-boss. Without you we find most arguments find no middle ground and are left unresolved.
We miss the way you would direct traffic in your silent but mostly-organized manner. This new way makes it seem
like all the stoplights in the whole country are either broken or out-of-sync.
We miss how you guided our parents and children alike to know basic dangers so they could still play and interact without fear of harm or actual harm happening. Basically, we miss playtime overall because you're gone.
Your presence here was a breath of fresh air on an otherwise humid, 105 degree day. Without you we're just all walking around complaining about the heat, the humidity and waiting for a refreshing breeze that never seems to come.
Basically, this party is no fun without you. You, Common Sense, were the life of the party. You gave us knowledge of how to have a healthy balance between holy-crap-I-want-to-try-that and dude, this is not going to turn out well. Without you at the party its just a wide division between those who are too-scared-to-try-anything (they're sitting, properly, against a wall most likely) and the bozos who are trying everything to the point where you can find them randomly passed out in various places when the party's over.
Common Sense..... where have you gone? Does this vacation have an end date? What's the plan here?
What I'm really tippy-toeing around asking is, "ARE YOU EVER FRIGGIN COMING BACK?!?! THE WORLD IS TURNING INTO A REAL DUMPSTER FIRE IN YOUR ABSENCE YOU KNOW!!"
I don't know where you are? Tahiti? Did you find a nice plot of land in the Swiss Alps and you're raising goats now??
Wherever you are, I'm sure it's been lovely being away from all the arguing and the chaos. But you've had a good run at this new Goat Raising. It's time to come back and DO YOUR JOB!
Bring the goats if you feel it would be best. To be honest, they're probably smarter than some of the humans we have around here.
Please come back....
