Take It and RUN!

with 14 comments

I walking down the street today, minding my own business, looking for coins, cans, aluminum foil, energy bar wrappers and anything else that’s shiny when a stranger approached me.
I know what you’re saying, “Stranger Danger”, but honestly this stranger didn’t seem to be in any immediate danger, so I through caution to the wind.
However they did seem in a bad way.
The stranger, a woman, asked, “I’m so sorry to bother you, but I was wondering if you had a cell phone I could use? I need to call a tow truck, my car quit on me around the corner…”
I didn’t reply, I just reached in my pocket and handed her my phone.
“Oh thank you!” she exclaimed. She actually said thank you, (this is important because of what happens next). She takes my phone and bolts in a mad sprint.
I’m so shocked and stunned, that it takes a few seconds to give chase.
She whips the first left she can make down an alley, (smart move, except if you’re being chased in a movie) unfortunately this one is not a dead-end. Perhaps if I was meaning to rape, kill or rob her the alley would have had no way out. In effort to make some “Hollywood moments” I did shout out the occasional “Hey!” “Stop!” “Come back here!”. I was able to refrain from “Why you…”
Down the alley the thief took a left; up to the next street where she took another left; down to the next intersection taking another left and finally left down the alley. The cycle repeated over and over and it didn’t take long to realize that we were going in circles. Perhaps she was trying to wear me out. I thought of stopping and waiting for her to come around, but couldn’t take the chance that she might look behind her periodically to see if I’d “wised up” to her loop scheme. So ’round and ’round we went till eventually we turned to butter. Then my friend Sambo took that butter and put it on his flapjacks.
Epilogue: Who is long distance provider?

Meaning of Life

My father came visit this weekend.
We we’re talking.
He’s getting on in the years.
One thing lead to another and I asked the question, “Do you fear dying?”
His response?
“Who gives a shit?”

When It’s Bad

with 18 comments

If you’ve ever been alive, you’ve probably had a bad day, or moment, or thought.
Maybe you drank too much at a Christmas party and set the tree on fire.
Perhaps you stole your mother’s purse for “crack money” only to discover outside your dealer’s house that you mistakenly grabbed her winter purse after she switched to her summer purse.
Possibly you’ve had your “fully exposed” body posted on the internet without your permission.
By chance you’ve been arrested for sexually assaulting a parking meter in downtown Detroit.
No matter what your situation, not matter how hard you think you’ve had it, no matter how low you think you’ve sunk, you don’t know bad until you’re checking the rearview mirror for bodies.
“I don’t remember a speed bump on this road”.
