interesting day yesterday. Big news at work was the tarantula we found walking around the tanks. I don’t know much about tarantula’s but I think I’ll keep my distance from him and be on the lookout for any cousins he may have around here! Wow, that’s a scary looking bug.
Headed down to Katie’s last night to listen to the Groove King’s, Jim Fulton’s band. Hung out for a couple of hours, there was no one there. Well, almost no one, less than 10 people for sure. He has a little black guy playing the bass and it was the biggest electric bass I’ve ever seen. 7 stringer, huge neck, huge body, LOOOONG guitar. Made the little black dude look even smaller. Overheard a couple of guys talking and heard this classic line:
What are friends for if you don’t use them? Even if it’s wrong.
Never heard it put better – no wonder people shy away from finding new “friends”.
And, on a related note, we have this story from the twilight zone:
The couple were discussing marriage early Wednesday when the woman said she wasn’t sure if she was ready, according to Ann Arbor police reports. The man responded that taking risks is an important part of life and, to prove his point, jumped out of a first-floor window and ran naked across the street.
Yep, that would prove it to me. Late.
Good point about “new” friends….fear of being used…sad isn’t it?
