And you thought you had a messed up head today
I saw a kid get hit by a car today. We were just waiting to make a right turn, and when the light turned green, the car directly ahead of us accelerated around the corner, just as a kid started to cross on a walk sign. I just had time to think christ he's going awfully fast with someone in the intersection, when all of a sudden he hit her. I was flabbergasted, but Eva calmly stated that happened all the time. "If you tell them at the office you got hit by a car, they give you shit for jay-walking", she nonchalantly informed me. The kid seemed to take it all in stride as well; she stumbled when struck, but regained her balance and kept walking. I immediately memorized the dude's license plate, but when I saw that had he pulled over into a driveway and was getting out of the car, I kept going.
Eva talked to the girl at lunch and asked her if she was okay, and this girl is handling this in fine style. Apparently it was another high school kid driving. "A real asshole", according to the victim, "I'm going to egg his house tonight".
Fair enough.I called in sick today, first time in 4 or 5 years. By the end of the day, my throat was feeling less razor-blade filled, and it's pretty much just a head cold now. Still it was sure nice to be home with a pot of tea and my comfy chair and the newspaper. And with today being a grey, cold, kinda drizzly day, it felt like the perfect day to indulge in a lot of Jesus and Mary Chain.
There is nothing like the JAMC for seducing you into just wallowing in your sickness and misery, while simultaneously encouraging you to kick its ass. The Reid brothers feel my pain.
