The Running Man

So yesterday turned out to be a beautiful day as far as the weather goes. I rolled out of bed bright and early and decided,

"Today, is a great day to play hookie!"

With my best sick voice, I called into work and took a sick day *cough cough*. Putting on a cup of coffee I jumped in the shower, took my time, and when I got out was ready to start my lazy day in.........skkkkkiiiiiiiiiiiiirrrrtt!!!!!!!

All ambitions for the day come to a screetching halt. My father, being a school teacher, was still off for the day on Easter vacation. And he also has been suffering from a horrible eye infection for the last month almost. He finally went back to work about a week ago. So seeing him standing in his underwear in the hallway and his wallet in hand, I knew exactly what this meant.

"Boy(yes, he calls me boy), you know my eye is all jacked up?"

He makes this statement each day that he wants me to do a bunch of shit for him.

"Yep, I know Big Guy."

"And I see you took the day off work. That's good, because I need you to do some things."


So after getting his extremely large errand list, and downing a second cup of coffee I was out the door at 10am. After getting new tires for his car(and having to go to 3 different places to get them), going shopping, picking up scripts at the pharmacy, going to the Natural medicines store, sitting in traffic for countless hours, and getting an oil change, I slinked back in the door at 4pm.

Plus, the errand running took me to the area I work in twice during the day! I may as well just went to work!! The highlight of my day? Cruising down a back road and the song "Low Rider" came on. Because of my errands I had to drive my pop's 1985 Grand Marquie, aka "The Old Dudes Pimp Mobile" as I like to call it. With the weather, the song, and the car it was a fitting moment.

Other than that, the rest of my day was spent hanging outside my buddies car shop bullshitting and watching cars do really stupid things in the new and complex intersection just put in. And I mean doing really stupid things!! So my day playing hookie was pretty much shot. The last thing I want to do on a nice day is spend it sitting in traffic for hours on end. And what the hell is with nice weather and people driving like ass-bags???!!!! I swear I was stuck behind all class A stupid drivers!!!

AAAARRRRGGG!!! And so, today begins a new one. Sitting in my cubicle, bright and early, head ache, and my coffee has gone cold Not a good start so far haha,
