As much as I like to fuck off, and I do, there are times when ya gotta step up to the plate.
I got a phone call today asking for help from my mother.
My Dad is in the hospital after some surgery and she has to go to Boston to teach a class.
I told her I would go see the old man after he got home on Thursday and then thought better of that, I went and seen him tonight.
He seemed to be in pretty good spirits but I could see he was putting up a fight.
Ya wonder how I got to be so fucking ornery, I have a very good teacher.
Anyways, I called my little brother and he hadn’t heard anything about it, strike two, He hadn’t heard anything about me going to see Granny either.
Pay attention kid, these are our immediate forefathers, there must be a reason nobody is clueing you in.
Anyways, so much for R&R and I&I,* I was just starting to enjoy that too.
It is also putting a crimp into a certain out of town excursion I was really looking forward to, sorry Honey, get there when I can.
This does not preclude me from taking care of my family in any sense.
That is what we are supposed to do and as inconvenient as it may seem at the get go, I will drop everything I have going on to do it, every fucking time.
I also got an Email from my crazy assed uncle wanting to know that if he can get here from three hundred miles away on a Goddamn Honda 750 up I-5, if I have a place for him to crash.
Hey, if you can get here without smearing yerself on the side of the highway, I’ll be more than happy to have ya crash here, instead of the middle of the fucking road, been there, done that, lost count. I will find some accommodations, somehow, even if I have to sleep on the floor, I ain’t a stranger to that anyhow.
The definition of stubborn, that guy. I won’t go into the reason why he wants to do this, other than he is an altruistic motherfucker like I am and it has to do with family. Idiot.Take the fucking bus dude!
Yer kid doesn’t want to be an orphan, even if ya are separated from the mother, Jesus.
Anyways, just another day in the life, Thanks fer stopping by.
* I&I, got that one from my Pops a Long time ago, he was in the Navy.
Intoxication and Intercourse.
That’s a keeper.
Love Ya Pops.
