In a daze

The past 72 hours of my life have been surreal and trying. I've traveled nearly a thousand miles in that time without any prior plan to do so. I've had to do things that I have never done before and never in my wildest imagination would have thought that those things would have to be for a certain person in my life. I wish I could be more explicit than this, but I won't. I feel like I've just taken that little possessed girl from The Exorcist on the road trip from hell. Well, "feels like" is not really what I mean. I mean that I, in fact, did transport something out of control from a long way away, after having helped detox it, having "it" escape, "it" be arrested by the Routt County Police in Colorado for DUI, and having to deal with more bail bondsman on a Sunday than I am accustomed to. Oh, and I learned another thing, ATM withdrawls on my debit card are limited to $300 per day and certain services take cash only. Oh, and the motel I stayed at had crap wifi and drunken parties going on all night long. Fuh! King! Aw! Suhm!

Did I mention that I had previously taken Friday off to have a three-day weekend to celebrate my birthday a little late?

If a certain co-worker tells me that he had the worst day because he had to take his daughter to dance class, I'm going to start shooting people from the bell tower. Well, I'd throw water balloons, but you get my drift.

Oh no, that sounds incredibly stressful and tiring.

I hope that you get some rest.

Ummm... Happy Birthday? :)

If nothing else, it sounds like you'll have a good story that may even become an awesome movie directed by the Coen brothers. Just a thought.

Less deadly than a gun but more fun than just a plain ole' water balloon... Urine filled balloons!

Sounds like a character-building, wallet-draining good time to me. Then again I'm regularly wrong about these kinds of things.

Whoah whoah what the heck? How did your weekend get squashed? And you still had the ability to be the first person to come up with a funny saying for the corn.

Kudos to you! Hopefully you can relax sometime soon....awh.

Christielli~ It has been stressful, but it isn't that it disrupted my life--it's that you are so worried for the well being of the other person.

Cuz~ Yeah.

Megan~ Like Fargo? I don't want to be fed into a wood chipper.

Jay~ Yeah, it was a character building experience and a hair losing one as well.

Rawbean~ I get funnier with stress.

Vera~ I've missed ya!

John~ Me too!
