Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Kindnesses You Will Assuredly Regret

  • Helping the guy with the broken arm get a couch into his van.
  • Nursing a scorpion back to health.
  • Co-signing a lease for your just-out-of-rehab cousin.
  • Helping the person next to you on the plane with their oxygen mask before securely fastening yours.
  • Letting the door-to-door encyclopedia salesman into the house, mostly because there are no more door-to-door encyclopedia salesman, and it’s probably the serial killer with the van from the first bullet point.

    a beautiful day yesterday. i was sitting in the park enjoying the sun. a young woman started in on me for some reason. i’d heard her walking and ranting down the street and turned to look, and that’s all it took. she walked over and called me some good swear names (my mom was mentioned too), then spat on me, a deep one, real throaty, people’s heads turned when she brought that one up. it got on my sweater, which i had just washed. after she left, i took a tangerine peel (i’d eaten some earlier) and used that like a kleenex to clean off the loogie (really mucousy and globular, like a 1730s Streets of Jolly Old London Hork). i’ve recently got new glasses (progressives) which i haven’t quite figured out. maybe she thought i was giving her the hairy eyeball or a bad smile? these things happen i guess.
