Back from the corner store for smokes, Sweaty.

current song: No One's Little Girl, The Raincoats

But I got to meet another of my neighbors.

She was ahead of me, a three year old boy and a six year old girl
dancing around her in slow lopping tow.

She was sweaty too, a teeny little blonde in a SLAYER T-shirt and an enormous smile.

We were waiting at the stop light to cross back under the freeway...to our home.

I smiled at her, and couldn't just stand there silent.
I saw ya'll walking ahead of me and thought--OH HOW CUTE THEY ARE!

Thanks! she beamed back at me after looking down at her troupe.

You live there, too, don't you? she asked, nodding at our home.

Yeah, yeah I'm the one with the blue fairy lights and the Devil Ducky...349

RIGHT! she nodded, still smiling.

I'm Ginger... I offered my hand.

She shook it and told me she was Mary.

The little one at her knee took his hand out of his mouth and spouted:

I'm Paul!

Savannah shied away and looked back with a small smile.

We all walked home together.

I like where I live.

I kinda HATE you sometimes.

But I know you can't help it.


You are the random guy, I spill out something that touches my soul,
and you ask me what happens when you pour bleach on a snail.

I live in my own world, but I at least read the cues before I bounce into
some elses with a sandwhich.

(hit the condiment bar, that's what we're here for!)

I really have no idea how your mind works.

I like you.
I really do.
But you BAFFLE me.
