Its a little too hot tonight and the pollen count was wicked high today if I heard the news correctly. That probably explains my mood. I don’t feel sad or mad or any one particular emotion. I just feel blecch. Does that make any sense? Does feeling blecch make any sense? I don’t know if it does but you’re just going to have to bear with me cause that is the only way to describe the way I feel right now. Thankfully for you, this entry isn’t about how I feel right now. Its about something else entirely, something way more interesting.
Actually I’m lying.
Today I went grocery shopping and bought so many different kinds of vegetables that I held up the damn line for what seemed like ages. The cashier that was ringing me up had worked in produce previously so she knew what all of the vegetables were but she sees some of them come across her register so infrequently that she couldn’t remember all of the four digit codes that correspond with them. We had an amusing chat about our shared grocery story experiences while she finished up my order.
If it were allowed I probably would’ve tipped the woman for not screaming at me for making her day that much more difficult.
After that I pretty much vegged all day except for taking apart our broken exercise machine to make room for the free replacement machine the company sent us. While I did that I watched Cameron Crowe’s Almost Famous, one of my all-time favorite movies. Taking the thing apart shouldn’t have lasted two hours but it did. Oh well.
I’ve been thinking a lot about family and babies lately too. I watch A Baby Story on The Learning Channel every day when I get back from my morning walk and while I’m on my walk, when I’m not thinking about my latest story or what I’m going to write here on a given day, I often find my thoughts drifting to the future. I want a job now so that I can afford to have children now. That’s what I think about.
I also think about how I’d be as a dad when half of me is a normal, upstanding, young man and the other half is a sick ass fuck who might be better off locked up.
Anyway. Its too hot in here and I don’t have much else to say.
