Scene 1 – After sleeping for less than four hours I found myself with Aaron at the produce market in Germantown because heck the $40 I spent on produce last week did not last swimming boys a full week. As I was picking out watermelon, I got a phone call from a metal band from Cleveland. They heard I was “the person” to talk to about touring. Um, I haven’t been on tour since 1999. Heck, I have not been to a show since I played in February 2011. Of course, I will help them as much as I can.
Scene 2 – I arrive home from the errands that I wanted finished TODAY. My reasoning is if I am going to feel this crappy I am going to get all the painful chores out of the way so that from now till Thursday we are going to have fun (and go to endless swim meets and practice), goddammit because we are on staycation. I get in with 4 tons of groceries and the house is 85 degrees. I try all my tricks that I know to get the central AC running. Nothing worked. My sleep deprived addled brain repeated the word fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck. I start calling plumbers. The guy who fixed the AC last time it went out for super cheap was on vacation. He sent me to another local dude who I called. A few minutes later I hear Aaron say to Ryan WOAH dude best prank ever. I decided to investigate. It seems that Ryan tripped the AC emergency switch in the basement for fun. Oh, that is so funny, ummmm not. I quickly called the plumber who was halfway here to cancel his visit. Boy, that guy was pissed. Ryan lost outside alone time for this evening and will tomorrow write an apology to the plumber.
I am ready to sit on my deck and have a beer. I deserve it.
