I found this quote by American author and journalist Hunter Stockton Thompson who once said
" YOU CAN'T MISS WHAT YOU NEVER HAD"
He was also known as the creator of GONZO journalism which is a style of reporting where the reporters involve themselves in the action to such a degree that they become the central figure of the story.
Thompson did not lead a very healthy lifestyle (drugs) and did in fact kill himself with a gun in 2005.
NOW THAT YOU HAVE HAD THE DETAILS
Lets look at the lighter side of the quote.
Here is Dolores one of my Doodly Birds, she is known for being a fashionista.
She trawls the charity shops for bargains but now and again allows herself the luxury of window shopping in the better parts of town. Today she spotted this rather splendid Gucci bag and sighed heavily to herself
"You can't miss what you never had"
The other GONZO we know is Dolores's on/off boyfriend who can't keep his beak out of anything.
Hope you enjoyed the read.
