My Friends Part 1

 According to Freud, the human psyche is structured into three parts, the Id, the Ego and the Super Ego. The id demands immediate satisfaction and when this happens we experience pleasure, when it is denied we experience ‘unpleasure’ or pain. The id is not affected by reality, logic or the everyday world. Like the id, the ego seeks pleasure and avoids pain but unlike the id the ego is concerned with devising a realistic strategy to obtain pleasure.  Freud made the analogy of the id being the horse while the ego is the rider. The superego's function is to control the id's impulses, especially those which society forbids, such as sex and aggression. It also has the function of persuading the ego to turn to moralistic goals rather than simply realistic ones and to strive for perfection.
In my personal life, I have friends that personally influence my human psyche. They are so different yet together they have influenced who I have become - so blame them.

Driving home from a funeral one day I realized the importance of my close friends and I decided to call them to tell them how much I appreciate them. Geary's response was the feeling was mutual and he also appreciates me, Sheldon, Wendy and Wayne's comments were somewhere along the same lines but the topic was quickly changed.  Then there is my personal Id , TRACY ( I am not changing their names because they are all far from innocent)

Me: Little P, I'm calling because I just attended a funeral and I want to tell you how much your friendship means to me and how much I appreciate you.
Tracy: What the Fuck is wrong with you? Are you suicidal?
Me: No , I just want you to know I appreciate your friendship.
Tracy: Whatever..., who you playing Sunday?

Don't misunderstand me, Mr. Sensitivity has saved my ass and was there for me on more than one occasion.  He was the one to tell me that my girlfriend was cheating on me , while I was home working on Maui for the summer, and helped me gather my belongings from her apartment including my car. ( In hind sight maybe he just wanted to use my car) My friend Sheldon also flew with me from Maui to help me gather my belongings but he was soon salvaging my personal possessions " Can I have that Tecate Mirror..., can I have that Vase... - (No lie Shel you still have the Mouse/Face vase I made)
Tracy: What the Fuck is wrong with you, are you suicidal ? I read that suicidal people give their personal possessions away.  ( yeah right, like he reads... also do you see a theme here)

What Tracy lacks in tactfulness , he makes up for in honesty.  He once applied to be one of Maui's finest but FAILED the interview with flying colors.

Lt: Have you ever smoked marijuana?
Tracy: Yes, in High school
Lt: Why did you smoke?  You knew it was illegal and bad for you.
Needless to say he never made it to the next round. But he did show restraint in not ratting out another friend we smoked with who was also on the panel...

I find it most amusing when Tracy tries to give me female advice or taunts me that I have no game (FYI - I have no game by choice!!!) This is the Neotenous (haha look it up little P)  guy that didn't grow in pubic hair until he reached college. This may explain his much younger and prettier also explains why he was good at Foosball in high school - plenty of wrist action. (For a while we questioned his sexual preference... but we would support him in what ever team he played for...) Come to think of it... I think Tracy was the first to date Manti's girlfriend Lennay Kekua.

Side Note: what do you call an old Filipino man's sperm? Tata Sauce 

My personal Id, Tracy, always thinks it's about the sex, I once tried to explain to him that women cannot distinguish between a physical and an emotional relationship when orgasm are involved but he always tells me to just remain "Friends with benefits".  Perhaps I should explain it to Tracy this way... " I don't FUCK anymore...  I MAKE LOVE". CHEEEWHOO

Side Note: Why do Popolos always think about sex?  Because God put their pubics on their head.
