He's out there in California, not even nineteen years logged . . yet. I miss him, and so it seems- likewise on his part. But we talk. Yes, actually talk, sometimes, by phone, but more often it's the texts. The technology, yeah, could be said to be rather 'impersonal' but it kind of works doesn't it. I'm doing stuff, and he's doing stuff. We send these little messages back and forth as we live, and it does my heart good.
I'm at this roof top bar with loud ass music
smoking a cigar and eating a burrito. Life ain't bad.
Beats eating a cigar and smoking a burrito,
in say, south central.
Memorial Day, I might take a train to San Fran
and hang with lickatitty.
(Note: Lickity is the kid's real name. Met at A school
in San Antonio.)
Hell, that sounds fun. The coastal train.
Delicious taco bought at a street fair.
Holy something! Looks great!
Art from the little fair. I ditched two friends
because they just haaaad to go eat at some
touristy ass place. Ended up finding this street
fair and a badass coffee shop.
Wow. Proud of ya for skipping the corporate
and finding the real people.
Daddy raised me right.
The streetcorner I'm at.
Nice. San Diego?
I see. How far to San Diego?
36 dollar train ride.
Oh, thought it was closer.
It ain't that far. People with cars drive
down there all the time. I have become
the public transportation master.
Thirty six seems steep for a damned train ride.
That's round trip.
Could be fun. Guess the price ain't so bad.
Yeah. Wish I had some cooler people
down here with me though. The dudes here
are Disney channelish pussies with
Such is life. Brandt gets in Wed though.
I'm pretty happy about that. Dude's a
character. He'll be in my platoon too.
Oh yeah? He's your bud from boot camp right.
Very cool. Happy for ya.
Listening to full Beatles albums on youtube.
That's one of my favorites. John Lennon
wrote the coolest songs about sleep. I'm listening
Living la vida loca, loco!
View from the pier. The structures in the distance
are where I'll be living after Friday.
Could be worse ya know. Beautiful.
Brown Pelicans = cool.
Ocean creature pole insurance.
HA! Sorry... was out running to Westport
You ain't gotta apologize. You've gotta life too.
Yeah sometimes. A little bit at least :^)
You've got it way better than some asshole
out in the burbs that might as well be dead.
I admire the hell out of you for that.
My life is simple and I'm happy. Yeah, but thanks.
I'll turn nineteen in Japan and can save a
humans' life if need be. I've got it pretty good
for a WYCO hoodlum.
At the fish joint.
Some Camp Pendleton flora.
Looks, eh, succulent.
You're looking like that dude that voices the
AFLAC duck commercials. What's his name?
Shut up Dad.
