Has It Really Been That Long?
I suppose it has. But, listen. I have been so busy lately. There’s so much to tell! Hell, I went to New Orleans and was an insomniac and got caught in two torrential downpours and drank and ate so much I nearly needed my stomach pumped every night and danced till 4 am and spent a day’s worth of wages on cab fare. And that was just in four days!
There’s so much else, too. So, I have to list it all here, Internet, because my feeble brain just can’t keep up. I’m going to tell you all the things I am eventually going to give you the whole story one… one day. And, hey, this isn’t just a teaser. This is to remind ME that I have stories to tell you. I just don’t have enough moments in the day to tell you all of them RIGHT NOW.
To start with, my friend was mugged in Nicaragua just 2 days ago. On the 23rd of April, I was scammed into buying a fake magazine subscription. In New Orleans, I met a world famous chef. I just finished transcribing a six page letter into my journal. I read “Eat, Pray, Love” and have found myself wondering if I need to talk to God in order to find peace. I found out my grandmother was an insomniac like me. My brother has had to wear, amongst other things, a small cutting board on a lanyard around his neck as a way to engage customers at his big box store retail job. I planted flowers in my front yard and got so sunburned my neck skin still aches and a crow we named Jerry followed me around all day. I could go on, people. There is a lot swimming around upstairs. Do you wonder why I can’t sleep? While most of the world is twitching in its sleep, (or maybe that’s just CLH) I am wondering about whether or not I should call the mechanic tomorrow on my way to work or in between clients, and if i should consider buying wigs for our next party from that great online site Dan told me about…
Alright, that’s enough for now. I swear, I’ll tell you the stories one by one. Go read someone else’s blog and check back with me tomorrow. I’ll have a little somethin’ somethin’ for ya then.
