Three, The Hard Way

How are y'all doing? Great I hope. Last night was a doozy for me. Evening meeting with the community. My department has been working on something the neighborhood asked for 5 years ago. I've personally worked on this project for 2 years. Last night the neighborhood told me resoundingly "nevermind". They don't want the thing they've bugged me about at least once a week my entire time here. I oughta bug them about it until I leave. It doesn't seem fair that I can't even come home to vent and unwind with anybody. My good thang's way across the state.

On top of all the misery and fuckeduptitude I'm in the midst of, the spectre of my best friend leaving the state is hitting me like a ton of bricks. I got to hang with him a little bit on Saturday. It was really the first time in months that we've even seen each other. I feel bad about it because I'm in Detroit all the time, I just get caught up in being caught up.

Three has been prepping to move for a minute, but I'm finally feeling anxious about it. It's like a relative you have that is old and sick and has been for years, you do what you can, basically you just help to sustain their lives. Then when the doctor tells you it won't be long before they pass, you tense up, and rue all the shit you should have done with them. Thing is, jackass, you had that chance. You knew they were old and sick for years. Did you think that would last forever?

So, I hung out with old and sick Three, and all it did was make me angry. I'm miserable because on the friendship level, I gotta do the exact shit I railed about in the last post. I'm here in Satan's Anus making lemonade and I'm fuckin' sick of it.

Most of the shit you probably had to be there for it to be funny. But this is really just kinda for me anyway.

LOL @ "Have you tried a plastic bag tied tightly around your neck?"

Only a REAL friend could get away with some shyt like that! LOL

Remember planes fly everywhere. As long as Three is on the planet you can reach him!

Awwwwwwwwww Zeddie as much as you try to be all tough and shyt, you're one of the sweetest guys I know. This was beautiful...the fact that a man can honestly admit that he is going to miss another man who is not a blood relative. I love and Three will work it out and with phones and shyt it'll be just the same since you didnt see him often anyway. Work on that hate for planes thing and you're straight!!!

Good Luck to you Three!!!

((counting off on fingers)) two former roommates, three classmates, two co-workers, five random friends, my shrink and my sister have moved to (or back to) New York since I moved Boston, so I know how that separation anxiety feels. Come to think of it, I may be the one running folk out of Boston...

...Anyway, all of that to say, get on your grind and move the h*ll out of Smallville, Boo! Even if back to Detroit.

Royce's is right, you do need to work on that plane thing... Maybe another trip to New York with your "good thang [from] across the state." Yall can grip hands with eachother to make it through the flight.

That is your Boy! LOL

Prophetess said...

What's knocking, Knockout? That was a funny post. So, what is it the community asked you for but then changed their minds?

I was digging in my archives the other night and guess what I came across? You've got to see it, Knockout... I didn't believe it when I saw it...

You have a sleep breathing machine that can double for your plane oxygen mask. Just think, no "borrowing" of a used dusty oxygen mask. You know, just in case the plane is bout to crash. I'm sorry, I couldn't resist seeing I've not met a person who didn't like flying. Now elevators? You should see my husband sweating buckets when I get him on one. Even with the offer to stop it in mid air for quick sordid secks, he turns me down; something about wanting to "hurry". [Thinking] As if it ever takes THAT long. ...

I feel you on missing your boy. I have NONE of my circle near me. Maybe we can start a club. Seems like you are good with that sort of thing. I'll let you start and I'll join. =)

I don't know him... but since he thought I had a sexy voice... then he's my boy too. So he got caught up on that California Lovin'?...niiiice.

Imaginary beef...did you say whateva n*gga?
Every kiss begins with K, corny.
And that first comment... not saying it was you, just sounds like something you would say...i'm just sayin'

u know me!

Everytime you write about Three, he's funny. Why don't you deadline yourself 3-6 months and roll out too, its not like you are tied down in SAnus and you hate being there, at least now, your partner in crime will be in Cali too.
BKBajan (can't blog as me no mo) and I don't even know why.

Zed, I work for the City and I am glad my new duties don't involve major projects. LOL. I remember training, workshops, meetings on top of meeting only to say years later, You cannot do that. WTF.
