Re: Crossroads III: The Launch
It's October! Yayyy... Wait.... that means Halloween is coming. Ohhhh damn. Yeah, DC was true to her word. Dragged me about 200 miles to a city with one streetlight but has one of the largest pumpkin festivals around. All day... pumpkins, Thanksgiving and Christmas stuff, seasonings... aka a place I would never frequent. Funny thing happened.... had a great time. DC didn't drag me in every place, wasn't upset if I just stood back while she detailed everything she considered buying, and the fact I didn't have the "someone please shoot me" look on my face. It was just nice spending the day with her, even if, it wasn't a car show, gun show, or a card show. -You took a day to come with me to something I love to do. Never complained, actually seemed as if you had a great time. When I'm in (she paused) ... really like a guy, I want to do things with him as much as I can- Yeah... she's falling. So am I though....
Stopped at a place who had buffet on way back home. Waitress asked if we needed more napkins.... "She does, sometimes she is a messy eater." Comical yes.... DC wasn't offended. Ended up... she was messy (soup). When we were about finished... waitress asked if we were through at the buffet -He's not... he wants to eat enough to force you into bankruptcy.- Yes.... I thought it was hilarious. Driving back.... we talked but it seemed like it was stuff that only M couples or live-in couples would bring up. *Don't listen to what they say, watch what they do* Bet the farm I am.... they are matching.... Arrived at my place, fixed coffee, changed into comfy clothes.... About the time coffee was done, DC made a cup for me (mine is unique... as pop used to say *you like a little coffee with your cream*), brought it to me in sleep shirt and panties. It was the look... guys, you know what I'm getting at. Not all dolled up.... just "her." Our "love tanks" as spoken in the famous book.... seem to be pretty equal. We had deviled eggs at 430AM. For those who aren't familiar with me... I only crave deviled eggs after sex.
DC fixed lasagna before she left the next afternoon. Two huge bowels / dishes or WETF you call it. Enough to feed eight-ten guys. DC had to do things at her place, get ready for work week, and knew it was a guy's afternoon / evening. We (Hangover Crew) watched the last day of MLBs pennant race, watched Vin Scully's last game, and watched the night game.... my Steelers vs. Chiefs. I walked her to her car as she wanted to leave before the guys started piling in.... -Stop giving me that damn look. It's hard enough dealing with your sad puppy dog eyes but add your blue eyes in.... makes me want to stay- It was part acting as in, I wanted the guy's night but... I didn't want her to go either.
Received a call from ER.... mom was admitted. How, when, why, I dunno. We've not spoke in two months. I listened to the VM.... I feared it may have been a *you want to say something before she dies, best get your a$$ up here now* Yes I am NC / 180 and honestly can never see us being sociable again but.... still mom. It was just a repeat of back in May.... mom being confused, throwing schit fits and them wanting me to come up and de-escalate mom. Been down that road, didn't go in May, ain't now. It did bother me mom was in ER. I messaged DC.... kinda hated to bother her. DC was very soothing, listened and empathized with both the fact it is my mom and how I had to cut ties with her. THAT meant a lot... to ME. Tickled me belly when she did say -Why don't they call her sister? Doesn't she take more schit than a septic company- See why I like her LOL
Received confirmation my xBiL wants to come finish getting his stored stuff in my back yard. He got the first load back in the spring. It is in the area known for snakes. I wouldn't go in there in July either. But I heard from a birdie WC will be temporarily housing with xBiL, until she raises enough poor-mouth funds to return to my city. *Care if I come get the rest of my stuff?* "Not at all.... you and xxxx (half-brother) coming?" *Yeah... may bring another to help get it all* "Okay. No surprises though right?" No response. Two responses when they arrive.... friendly, cordial, willing to help them move things any way I can. Or a devious plot only a sociopath could devise. Either way... I was warned ahead of time. I would prefer the first way but I am well-prepared for the other. All depends upon if WC happens to be the "other hired hand."
