I may have horrified dear blix and doc with my drinking. I horrified myself in that I couldn’t quite get drunk. Buzzed, sure, but the altitude, or decided lack of it, seemed to have essentially snapped my gills shut. Actually, they probably weren’t all that shocked. I do feel a little gypped though, I mean usually if I drink a whole 6 pack of Spaten Optimator and have a couple nips of whiskey, I should feel some real side effects.
Do you have any idea how intensely I miss those 2? I’m sure you miss someone or something similarly, or have at some point experienced it. See, they’re like not just some of my best friends, they’re family. We all ended up joined together in the weird desperation that struck so many people in our mutual hometown. Blix told you all about how we met. Weird and scary. That girl was older and I younger than he recollects, but not by much. Heh, a day or 2 later I was hanging out with the other chosen brother, Mike, and he said Jason had a big problem with my taste in women. I figured it was just my penchant for cute and insane. Maybe Jessica had dated him too?
Doctor Laurea, she was one of Mike’s girlfriend’s younger sisters. As they were exiting High School she was starting, I was half way through. It made perfect sense to adopt her as a sister, and it felt natural. All the girls I dated back then always got some sort of jealousy issue about her. They just didn’t get it. Family is family, blood or not. Which reminds me of when my brother Jason got romantically involved with my sister Laurea. Those were some strange and frightening days early on. Obviously it has all been for the better though.
Jason and Laurea’s dogs! What amazing animals they are! Kilo was my continual assistant on my smoking endeavors, Pico was spastic and wonderful and loving. I was a bit concerned about how well I’d get along with dogs. I like to think I am a dog person, but I haven’t had a dog in almost 10 years. I had a worry that one of them wouldn’t like me. I reek too much of my ex’s cats I suppose. The dogs were not only forgiving of that fact, but intrigued by the feline odor on my shoes, pants and well, everything I own, but I think the lack of algae scent tempted them as well, for a couple days.
OK. So, right then. I may try to do this more often. We’ll see.
