What more could happen?

I crawl out of the rubble of Christmas. None the worse for the wear/war, I'd actually be so optimistic as to say: Better.
("better" meaning: better)

That's me. A regular old hopeful.

Because of this friendly feeling I'm nursing, I'm going to hold back from the nitty gritty of my holiday season. Hope it felt Christmasy to at least some...it doesn't seem to be the popular consensus.

I'm in Houston.
Till New Years.

Then I'll be on the Border.

My car is shaking like a small boy and I'm strapped for cash. Oddly enough, this too makes me feel hopeful.

This afternoon, after driving to one too many seedy little car shops trying to get the car realigned; Steve urging me to put on "some womanly charms" and get us some discounts(chauvanistic bastard), we found an even seedier little joint with the uninformative words Country Club painted in red above the door and which from under wafted the irresistable stench of Redneck. Sweet, sweet authenticity.
Played some pool and knocked back some brewskys. Even hit up the jukebox.
Score: 1 - 1

I lost a bet and decided instead of a pool shark, I'll settle for being a pool pirhana and COMPLETELY off the subject, the one thing wrong with being an athiest is that there's no one to talk to during an orgasm.

No one "catch all" person to blame things on or hurl accusations of cosmic indifference at. The passenger's side rear wheel is what's causing the shaking.

Chad said...

I beg to differ with Dave, but there may be no-one in your situation to blame everything on; here there is.

The sad thing is that 99% of the time you'd be right

BarbarianDave said...

I know there is. Yet, if one so chooses, one can always find a way to blame the "Cosmic Indifference".
But that's part of the beauty of being a mere mortal. If all else fails blame my Dad.

Dang, I thought at least SOMEONE would have commented on the orgasm.
Come to think of it, that's what all these comments are about, just none brave enough to come out and say it. Liz, I feel you... uh, feel FOR you.

Yes, yes, all except Mr. Competitive at the top.


BarbarianDave said...

So why didn't YOU comment on the orgasm?......

Amaranthine said...

Well, those orgasms are what keeps this spot as popular as it is, don't you think? A tinge of sexuality keeps everyone on the edge of their seats, especially when coming from such a beautiful woman. And when you can talk about sharks, pool, multiple personalities... and orgasms, all in the same sentence--well, that's a useful skill.

Aiii... I think... I'm glad you're no atheist. Talk away!


BarbarianDave said...

If I was an atheist could I still talk away?
