hattitude

“So it was pretty early and I wanted to get some stuff for when I was having you guys over later, so I put on my coat over my nightgown and I put my hat on too—you know my [black felt cowboy] hat?— and I drove down to the the store and [ex-boyfriend] Billy was there working the cash register, and he was wearing, you know that hat he always wears? that train engineer hat? Well he looked at me and said ‘where’s your horse?’ and I was so tired I said something dumb like ‘oh it’s outside’ or something like that. But if I had been thinking I would have said ‘same place as your train.’ There were a bunch of people standing around. It would have been perfect.”

    Man, I hate it when that happens.

    I write it down so I don’t start thinking it’s normal. When I think it’s normal I’m in trouble.

    I know. Getting desensitized to crazy is one of my biggest fears. That and raccoons.

    I wasn’t aware of the latter, and if you’re really concerned about the former your living situation over the past few years might leave something to be desired.

    No, no… I’m ok with being Alice in Wonderland; I just don’t want to be Alice in Wonderland sitting on an oversized, probably hallucinogenic mushroom smoking a hookah with a giant talking caterpillar. There’s a difference between observation and participation.

    Also, I was lying a little about that being one of my biggest fears. But I do really dislike raccoons. When I was little I was told to run into the house if I ever saw one because it would probably have rabies and would bite me.

    “When I was little I was told to run into the house if I ever saw one because it would probably have rabies and would bite me.”

    It’s funny you should say that, someone once told me to do that when if I see a flannel-wearing Mainer…

    Yeah, I never got that particular warning and now I think it’s ok to make puns in public.
