It is the most
wonderful day of my life! I
can look at the world and say Hey, this place is pretty good.
This earth is great! I
love my life!
And the funny
thing is, I was almost thinking that way to begin with.
I was out in the backyard, sitting on one of those white plastic
outdoor chairs that everybody has in their backyard.
The sun was warm and a nice breeze blowing.
The sky was a brilliant color blue.
And all I was doing was leaning back in the chair, legs stretched
out in front of me. The sun
was in its last half hour on the way down, looking far away and pretty.
And I stared up at the clouds in the sky, and just watched them
move and drift. If you
stare at them long enough, they feel like they're gonna smother you.
It's a funny kind of freaky.
And then I
looked up, and there he was, walking up the driveway.
I did the
biggest double take in my life, it mustíve looked hysterical to him. Because for a split second, I swear to God, I thought my
brain had finally cracked open and all my thoughts were manifesting
themselves into full blown hallucinations.
So I blink like
a dumbass, and he smiles at me, still walking towards me, and I struggle
to sit all the way up in the chair, and heís standing right next to
me. "Hi." He says.
"HÖ HÖ hi. What's up?"
I'm such a dumbass. I
can't be all cool, calm and sophisticated in the face of my fantasy.
I can't be like I was just wondering when you were gonna show
up. I'm getting what
I'm wanting, and all I can do is stutter.
"South of Melrose, three blocks east of Fairfax, right?"
He says, "Probably never would've found you if I hadnít
seen your car." Oh my God
is this really happening? Can
this really be happening? It's
crazy it's insane, things don't happen exactly as I want them to in
