i live for those moments when crazy shit naturally happens. theyre so great!!! i have to read lady chatterlys lover by d.h. lawrence for english and i suppose you have to do something similar as well, so i decided i would go read amongst the bamboo. its not a very exciting book and after a short while i was napping in the breezy sun with the swishing and creaking of bamboo all around. when i woke up i felt so wonderfully relaxed and dazed. i sauntered over to the refrigerator behind my house to get a cool drink of water. on my way back to my room i was stopped by a surly fellow. this guy had two 32 oz beer cans and two 40 oz beer bottles. thats four containers of beer mind you. he was very pleasantly wasted and had that funny confused look that drunks so often have. slurred speech, the whole deal. the first thing he says, "is melba here?" so i tell him no. i had a big smile on my face. it was neat. crazy multi drink really wasted guy at my house. he asked for a ride, and i said no. then he asked for directions to mayberry, the next road over. heh huzzah to crazy transient drunkard. so surly and nice. he then waddled in the general direction as per my directions, but not before fiveing me for my whatever. his hand rubbed off beer on my hand! so great. i genuinely enjoyed that farce. looking for melba! in preenlightenmentretrospect i should have given him a ride, just so i could have met melba or to find out that melba doesnt exist and melba is his name for the canal where he likes to drink, hoooofuckinghahahahaha...
then later i heard a siren and i ran outside and over a fence to see what was the happening because i figured maybe a drunken fellow might cause such a noise. i couldt see anything but by the time i got back there was a sheriff in front of my house. heh, fancy that! by that time my mom was outside. she immediately pointed to me. the sheriff got a funny look. why was my mom pointing to me? he then asked if we had seen a guy. and i said yeah. and he was like what was he wearing and i told him what i thought i remembered. plaid shit and shorts with the elastic tightening abilities at the bottom. apparently there was an accident up the road and they think he was the person responsible. lousy no good drunk, damn his irresponsibility. and to think i thought he was a harmless pedestrian sort. rah! i told the dude about his destination being melbas on mayberry. i guess now melba was going to be his hideout place. fuck reckless sorts.
later on i went to the grocery store and had a simply blissful laugh session that still continues intermittently. in the cereal isle at albertsons i saw the alberstons brand imitation cereals. "magic twinkles" was my favorite. heh, magic twinkles. believe me its really quite hilarious if you are in that moronic magic twinkles is funny mood. it was the imitation for lucky charms. other included crazy fruits and golden corn nuggets. pure genius!
ours is essentially a tragic age, so we refuse to take it tragically. the cataclysm has happened, we are among the ruins, we start to build up new little habitats, to have new little hopes. it is rather hard work: there is now no smooth road into the future: but we go round, or scramble over the obstacles. weve got to live, no matter how many skies have fallen.
