My Day Before Friday

There’s this older white guy with long white hair(picture a hippie) that I’ve seen on my route for many months that walks other people’s dogs.  We’ve waved ‘hi’ to each other in the past and today I had a parcel delivery to a home where he was at to pick up a dog.

Hi, I have a delivery for this house

Oh okay.  I don’t think they are home but I can take it for them

There’s some money owing from Canada Customs

Oh, I can’t help you there

A second later he saw a sign on the door with instructions to go around back for the delivery.  I went around back and met the recipient.  Not too long after, the older hippie guy comes by and says,

Oh hey, you’re home.  I was going to pay that for you if you weren’t home

What?  First thing I thought was that this old guy was full of shit and was trying to make himself look nicer than he really was.  I also thought about how he was so confident that I wasn’t going to call him out on his bullshit.  He didn’t even know how much the bill was.  Fake fucker.

I haven’t had any starchy or junk food this week.  It’s a good way of eating.  You feel light and not intoxicated.  Unfortunately, you feel hungry really quickly which is the way it should be.


Grilled natural sausages, sauerkraut, steamed broccoli and asparagus

After work I went to the local big box store to buy some stuff.  I bumped into a wife of an old friend.  I was an asshole.  My lack of enthusiasm and short monotone answers made for a negative interaction.  I felt shitty about it after and emailed an apology.  She didn’t deserve my shittiness.  Apprehensive feelings instantly come over me whenever I see the friends I used to be so close with or those affiliated with them like their wives.  I just don’t know what to say anymore.

I’m starving.  It’s like I never ate.

      I guess it’s yumm for something not unhealthy…lol. The hard situations might feel unpleasant but they are always a good learning experience. How have you been?

        A learning experience to say the least. I like knowing people see the positive through the negative. With that, I have been great ha, back in the states, always on the lookout for that next inspiration. How about you? Doing well?

        I can usually see something positive out of any situation but it doesn’t always make it feel less shitty..haha. “Always on the lookout for that next inspiration”…I wish I was that positive. I think I’m doing alright but it never feels like it. Still searching I guess.
