Points to Ponder

I was washing the RV this morning and the song by the Temptations, “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” kept going over and over in my head.

I thought to myself, “Self, papa is one sorry ass role model.”

I looked up the lyrics:

I said, Papa was a rolling stone. Wherever he laid his hat was his home.(And when he died) All he left us was alone."

What shocked me is I always thought papa left them with a loan. Not alone. If he left them with a loan then papa was truly a sorry man.

But since papa was clear a lousy role model how in the heck did I think papa got a loan in the first place. You’d be a fool to loan papa money.

I think my mind just switched over to vacation mode, ya think?

Seriously, you didn't really think he left them with a loan, right? If you did, I can officially diagnose you with "White Man's Lyrics Disease"!

Yes I did. I figured it was Rent to Own or something. That would work into the lyrics just fine and would prove my point. "All he left us was a rent to own."
