Guess who came over last night.
David, my old neighbor! It really was so good to see him.
I’ve always been kind of proud of myself for liking him even though he’s the worst person I’ve ever known but on this visit David called his friend who makes him seem like Mother Teresa.
More about that later.
When he called and said he’d be in town and would come over for a drink I warned him that I had a new dog who doesn’t always welcome strangers.
Debbie is a complicated personality.
When you first come in, especially if you’re male, she will try to kill you. She’ll jump on you and attempt to bite you.
If you don’t make any sudden moves and just sit down quietly she will lull you into a kind of comfort and sit with you and even kiss you.
She might even take a little nap near you.
In fact even if you insult her she will be quite playful
If you misread that you are home safe it will be at your own peril.
Only a fool will try to go to the bathroom or scratch their head and expect to do so unscathed.
Anyway it was wonderful seeing David.
He’s had his fill with Texas. Not for any reason that a human being would have their fill of Texas like their gun laws and shit but because he isn’t getting enough yucks there.
We were reminiscing about the people we knew and his friend David L. came up. I won’t mention his last name mainly because I won’t be saying anything good about him and he might have family that loves him and would take offense. I doubt it but anything is possible.
I knew David L. only though texts etc. Through the years he’s given me a few laughs and since we were on our second drinks I suggested we give him a call which we did.
He seemed pleased that David and I were together again.
I explained that
“Since trump’s election I found that David wasn’t a funny aberration but a large part of the country so we’d lost touch. But we’re back together again”
I was pleased to add that David did not vote for trump and felt that weapons of war should not be on the streets. He also said guns shouldn’t be sold to ” loonies, children, felons and people on the no fly list.”
He wanted me to add one other no gun person but I can’t write it because I’m not a complete animal.
He’s almost acceptable except he’s okay with almost anything if it puts money in his pocket. And I mean anything. He’s also a gun carrying bigot who hated Obama with a passion.
I take it back. He isn’t acceptable.
I have to keep reminding myself that he was so good to me when dave ran away.
Anyway David L. says “Well I did vote for trump and I think he’s doing a great job.”
“You can’t really mean that”
He had more to say but I was too busy gagging to hear him
This guy lives in California. One of the good states. I wonder if he has any friends.
