The 2010 Roadtrip: Part 6

Therion—Sitra Ahra

MoTW—A New Leaf

Wednesday 8/4

6:30 am: Woke up. Turned channel to TBS. Put on sweats and went outside
to smoke, drink a diet Dew and read.

6:55 am: Back in to room and in bed. Watched whatever was on.

7:30 am: The woman woke up and we talked about something, probably not
important since I can't remember it. She then went downstairs to get

8:15 am: Got a call from sister. Her vehicle was really acting up and
had to be brought in for repairs. We agreed to pick her up at home and
go do stuff. Stuff I wanted to do since it was my vacation. She went
along with it because she really had no choice.

9:00 am: Left the hotel. I had showered, decided not to mention it until

10:00 am: At sister's house. Did something between 9-10 but can't
remember what it was.

10:20 am: Came up with a plan to go to Willowbrook Mall and waste time.

11:00 am: Went with the women to a Home Goods. Really exciting if I was
dead. And I wasn't.

11:45 am: JC Penney's was next and I was excited about this because I
could pick up some Mets garb.

12:00 pm: I was in heaven. Mets garb galore and everything was on sale.
Picked up about $120.00 worth of stuff, the woman picked up another
$65.00 to give me on Christmas. Sister was wandering the store and lost
us for awhile, guess her car wouldn't be ready for a bunch more hours.

12:30 pm: Had the women drop me off at Best Buy while they went to
another chick-type store. I couldn't find a damned thing to buy.

1:15 pm: They picked me up. SIster was driving which was odd.

1:45 pm: Stopped at Shop Rite to pick up Bubba Burgers for cookout #2.
Found out the reason sister was driving was that the woman told her she
could borrow the car while we went to mother's for dinner.
2:30 pm: Sister dropped us off at mother's and took off. Bad blood
between those two, so no family get together. Not that I cared. I tried
to get them to reconcile but it didn't work. Fuck it.

2:45 pm: Had a beer as we sat around talking about shit and smoking.

4:00 pm: After a few more beers the grill was fired up and I had the
duty of cooking. So I did just that.

4:50 pm: We ate dinner.

5:30 pm: Everything was cleaned up and we were back on the porch smoking
and talking about stuff.

6:05 pm: Sister called and her car was ready. She would be over in 15
minutes and drop off the car.

6:30 pm: Car was delivered as promised and we said our goodbyes before
heading out to see the spawn before they were shipped off to their
father. Promised mother we would come by to say goodbye before heading
back to Michigan on Thursday.

7:00 pm: At sister's. Hung out for a few and they the kids were packed
into her newly fixed vehicle and we headed over to her ex.

7:10 pm: Kids dropped off, we told them to be good and that we would
never see them again because they bored us and they cried so I told the
we were just kidding which stopped the tears. Too bad I was lying. They
asked us to stop by their day camp at the pool before we left the next
day and we told them we wouldn't.

7:15 pm: As we headed back to sister's house, her vehicle died. This
freaked her out but I told her to try and start it, which she did and it
worked fine. But she was still freaked.

7:25 pm: Back at sister's house where we did nothing for the next couple

9:30 pm: Decided to head back to the hotel since we had a big travel day
coming up.

9:50 pm: Back at the hotel and in bed watching Shark Week.

11:55 pm: Fell asleep.

COMING NEXT: The explosive climax

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!!!
