Living is the best revenge

One of the few benefits of getting older is thinking back on your childhood up to your twenties, and remembering the people you knew, teachers and employers and co-workers, who were twenty or thirty years older than you back then, who were mean or abusive to you. And you think: "hah hah asshole, you're probably dead now."

I sometimes sit and reminisce about the many jobs I had when I was younger just so I can think of another nasty person who is probably dead. It's not a very nice thing to admit, but I can't help it. 

It's said that living well is the best revenge, but in some ways, just living is the best revenge.
