It's been a while. I've been holed up trying to come up with an intro to put at the beginning of "A Long Journey," and after 8 months, I have finally found the perfect one. The one in this blog is the draft before it. I was really proud of it, and it really explains a lot of my humor and reveals my personal experiences... but it's more than 1,000 words. I had to cut. Therefore, I'm putting it in this blog for posterity. I did not edit it in the slightest, so there could be errors out the door, but like I said, I'm not even using this intro. Why put in the time to polish it?
Original-Extended Cut Intro
Before we begin, let me tell you a story so that you know what kind of dialogue to expect.
Originally, this small story was going to be about the current geopolitical state of Venezuela in 2016.
Well, after an episode on posting about a crisis happening in the world on social media, I’ve found that anything along the lines of ‘Venezuelans live…’ or ‘Most Venezuelans…’ you will quickly get at least one angry response saying you are racist, even if what you actually said was ‘Most Venezuelans live in Venezuela.’ Already, someone is frantically typing up a comment condemning my actions. Let me save you the time and energy: just walk away. I guaruntee you will not enjoy this game.
