The 2010 Roadtrip: Part 3

Death Angel—Relentless Retribution


Before I continue, let's correct a mistake on the last post. For the
final entry, it should be:

Sunday, 8/1

12:05 am: I was tired. I went to sleep (or whatever it was that I wrote.
I'm too lazy to look. The thing I had to change was am from pm since, if
it was 12:05 pm, I would have been driving and that would have been
silly to sleep while driving. I'd probably be dead or something).

6:35 am: Woke up. Actually felt pretty good.

6:40 am: Got out of bed after finding TBS. "Married With Children" was

6:42 am: After throwing on some sweats, went outside, grabbed a diet Dew
from the cooler and lit up a refreshing smoke. Noticed that the vehicle
next to us had Georgia plates and a Confederate flag, decided it
wouldn't be a good idea to pound on their door, demanding that they come
out with their hands up.

6:50 am: Finished the Dew, disposed of the empty can in our recycle bag
(hey, 10 cents for empty cans and bottles in Michigan!) and went back
inside to lay down.

7:00 am: "Married…" over, flipped around a bit and found something
else to watch. Don't remember what it was. Kind of went back to sleep.

7:50 am: The woman woke up. I woke up again. She decided to take a
shower, I decided to have another smoke outside. Fuck her and her
non-smoking room shit. She doesn't know what she's missing.

8:00 am: Back inside, back to bed. Flipped around channels, really
nothing on but settled on "The Invention Of Lying".

8:10 am: Decided to take a shower.

8:20 am: Felt refreshed.

8:30 am: Another smoke. Called sister, told her we were coming back
over. She had no choice but to accept this and offer us breakfast since
we were guests.

9:00 am: Loaded up the car with our stuff and headed to the office to
check out.

9:10 am: On the road again.

9:20 am: Back at sister's house. Went to the computer so I could find
and print out a coupon for a hotel. No way were we paying full price.

9:45 am: Decided on Comfort Inn. Cheapest price, fuck the fact it was
next to a sex shop (yeah, like I cared) and that some people gave it bad
reviews. Didn't want to bring that up to the woman for fear she might go
ballistic again.

9:50 am: The link for the coupon didn't work on the one computer. It
could be accessed on the other computer though. But couldn't use the
other computer to print out the coupon since it wasn't connected to a
printer. What to do?

11:00 am: After thinking, came up with a great idea. Went to the car and
got my flash drive from my case o' fun, went back in, hooked up the
flash to the second computer, copied the coupon, put the flash into the
first computer and we had a coupon.

11:01 am: The woman asked me why I brought a flash drive. Shouldn't she
have said, "Smart thinking on your part, Stephen"? Of course not.

11:10 am: Had a salt bagel for breakfast.

11:45 am: Headed to Comfort Inn so we could drop our stuff off.

12:05 pm: Got a room on the fourth floor, didn't seem too bad of a
place. Felt good to finally really unpack the car.

1:00 pm: Headed back to sister's. We were going to drink lots of

Now, I believe that's what we did this Sunday afternoon. I remember
drinking a bit, don't think we did much of anything but drink. Oh and,

2:00 pm: Played a videogame with the youngest spawn, Lego Indiana Jones,
or whatever the name of it is. Really fun.

3:30 pm: Went to sister's ex-husbands house to drop off the spawn. It
was his weekend to have 'em, they were supposed to be back by 3 but she
didn't give a fuck.

5:00 pm: Watched "Frontiers".

7:00 pm: Started watching another movie, but the woman and sister were
falling asleep so I called it a night.

8:00 pm: Headed back to the hotel. I drove because I wasn't too drunk.

8:30 pm: In bed watching Shark Week.

11:15 pm: Fell asleep.

Wait a second? Isn't this a vacation?

COMING NEXT: Mother said we had to come over for dinner so we did.

Stephen Johnson

The idea of building a website with Bob came from Stephen in the days of message boards and chat rooms. We settled on the name and the rest is history. Retired since he hit the ripe age of 25, he spends most his time doing odd-jobs around the house and digging thru trash bins for "stuff that's still good." Stephen has contributed several short stories and hosted the "Lunatic Ravings" column since the beginning (1999). The idea of writing weekly columns came from Stephen before blogs or blog sites ever existed. So, I guess that makes him THE FIRST BLOGGER IN THE WORLD!!!
