Well, a co-worker named Lee was going to pick me up for work this morning, so I left at 7:30 and started walking. I told him if he wasn't there when I got out at 7;30, I'd just start walking down the road and would stop when I reached the red light at the end of the road. I made it to that intersection in seven minutes. I sat on a newspaper on a bus stop bench, when I realized all the frost on the bench. I got up and sat on a newspaper on the bench. Much better, but still frigid. Fourty-five minutes later, he arrived. My poor frozen ass. It seems he had been pulled over for speeding, and came to find out his tags were expired as well.
I feel sorry for his bad luck, but I know he probably would have gotten caught for speeding whether or not he was coming to get me. Tomorrow, however, I'm meeting him at the Waffle House. I told him I'd be the guy with my face, a cup of coffee, and hashbrowns scattered, smothered, and covered. Mmmmm. Normally, I'd get a bowl of grits, but recent jail breakfasts have pretty much ruined the grit thing for me.
Today was commissary day, when everyone gets the random stuff they ordered. It's like a weekly Christmas. Dave, who bunks beneath me, got a new toothbrush and some Colgate, as well as a chess set and some random junk food. We'll probably play a game of chess later on or over the weekend. The guy in the bunk next to me got some sodas, , candy, a notepad, and envelopes. Some got items like a walkman, dominoes, or plastic soap dishes. Almost everyone who ordered anything got some form of junk food.
So tonight, I write my journal on a NEW legal pad with my pen I snuck in last week. Damn, I'm living on the EDGE!!!
I also went to an AA meeting in jail tonight, which I'm supposed to do anyway as a requirement of my sentence, but it wasn't something I dreaded. Based on what I heard tonight, I'm no alcoholic, but I'm keeping an open mind - there's always room for improvement. Even if I'm NOT an alcoholic, a program that has helped so many can't be bad. I'll keep you posted.
