UPS and DOWNS: That's Life on Earth! D.B.A. Wendell V. Fountain Author

Depending on the time, place, and situation, you might be on an express or a freight elevator. One minute you have an unfettered view for miles around, experiencing a natural high like Slim Pickens riding the rocket bomb in Dr. Strangelove (1964) and the next you might find yourself rummaging around in the dark basement. Unlike a rollercoaster, the ups and downs of life are NOT predictable. One minute you're sailing into the stratosphere and the next you're in an underground tunnel without light on either end--that's life on Earth! I have always been under the impression that the people of South Korea like Americans, until I spent some time there. It didn't take me long to discover that, at least some college students, had no use for us at all! Though I have been known to like a cocktail or two, I do not like a rain of Molotov cocktails! For that matter, when it comes to food, I am not fond of raw squid or Kimchi. I prefer the white pizza in Rome where I can dine on a red and white checkered tablecloth at a sidewalk cafe with the woman of my dreams.
