234. thanks

the guru said, “what are you thankful for?”

the student replied, “i am thankful to finally be the one answering the questions, and while i’m at it, i’ve got a few things to complain about, as well. for one, the food here is lousy. it’s either overcooked or undercooked, but it’s never edible. for two, your teachings are awful. the whole #zen system doesn’t make any sense, and it’s obvious you are making it up day by day. for three, my room has four roommates and no view. for four, meditation is boring. and for five, it costs way too much.”

you have found thanks.
