I’m in the midst of a high as balls regretsgiving. I’m at my parent’s house and we’ve eaten and had a difficult conversation. I woke up in the very back seat of the struggle bus this morning but I fought my way to recovery only to take another turn. Wait- there was something this morning…
I awoke to a thundering head and roiling guts from another successful Black Wednesday in Dave’s garage. Not eating dinner meant too much grazing at the snack table but I needed to throw something on top of the beer and shot pile to make sure I could stay out and play. Also I really enjoy walking and talking so there’s that.
I woke up in an emergency feeling not-so-great situation and drug my ass into my car heading to McDonald’s. When I got there I was like 10th in line but shit was moving slow. The sun hurt my skull so I kept taking micro naps and every time I woke up another car had moved up.
At some point it hit me that I’d been there for 25 minutes and there were no lights on inside the restaurant. Yup, closed. In my defense most people pulled up to the illuminated menu board and talked to - building to yelled at - the speaker. Then they’d repeat the process at each window.
I was a founding member of fat idiots in need of fast food on a national holiday club but even that realization didn’t help.
My hangover would not be denied so I drove to another location. No sausage McMuffin with egg for me. Then I went to Thorntons hoping for some greasy gas station vittles but they didn’t bother warming anything up either. Holy hell I was in a pickle. And in the end I just leaned in to Diet Coke, ibuprofen, and proper naps to recover.
Headed over to see the kids at the ex’s and then came here. Thankfully everyone is a little done with talking for a while after a grueling exchange of opinions. The first gummy was consumed before heading in. Food had just arrived so the timing was perfect and I felt so good that I took another for good measure.
I have no excuse or explanation as to why I felt it necessary to drop a third. I. Am. High.
As I’ve thumb typed this in an effort to stay awake my brain keeps glitching. I have reread this close to a dozen times at different points and every time I delete something that don’t make no sense. I’m not in trouble just operating on a different level.
I meant to take pictures of my friends and the garage we play poker in but as I just glanced at my pictures I only took one shot.
