All tyrants are hated by those who are tyrannised. This is as true of Idi Amin as of the Man of the House.
Be careful, even tyrants must some day be old, or infirm, or unwell.
Most men retire to find that while they were away being loyal to their work, their families have created a life without them. And the office is merrily chirping away- the hole they thought they created was made in water.
Why am I writing this? After seeing many men in close circle who have retired and live a rather lonely life. In the house and all that, but lonely.
Not altogether their fault, because in their generation, no one taught them any other way. But men(and women) of our generation? What's their excuse for wishing the same loneliness upon themselves?
Well, forget it. This is just a rambles and ruminations post..
