I didn’t post last night. It was partly because I had to go grocery shopping after work because I didn’t have a chance to go to the store on Sunday, my normal shopping day, because I was busy entertaining her and her demands of food and TV and a place to sleep. So I got home a little later last night, still had a suitcase to unpack (ahem, STILL HAVE a suitcase to unpack), had dishes and laundry to take care of. Also, I was still exhausted. BlogHer 2009 wore my ass out! And I ended up in bed before 9 PM. So no blog post for me!
I also didn’t post because I am out of ideas. Well, I have a few things in mind, but I wasn’t feeling it last night. Mostly because I may have fallen asleep on the couch before 8 PM.
Thankfully the Blog Gods smiled upon me. Because as I was pulling into my parking space tonight, I saw this.
I know what you’re thinking and NO, that is not a dead body in a parking space of my condo.
What it is, though, is a DRUNK BUM SLEEPING IN A PARKING SPACE AT MY CONDO! IN THE SPOT NEXT TO MINE! Like my spot is to the left in that photo. Which means my car door? OPENED RIGHT NEAR HIM! I THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO JUMP IN MY CAR AS I WAS GETTING OUT FOR A COMFIER PLACE TO SLEEP! SERIOUSLY! I DEBATED GETTING OUT THE PASSENGER SIDE!
People, I do NOT live in the ghetto. Not even close. It may not be Rahm Emanuel’s neighborhood, where I used to live, but I would hope my friends who know where I live would back me up and say NOT THE GHETTO! So why is there a bum sleeping in a parking spot? When there is a nice grassy knoll not far from where he sleeps?
(I should have woken him from his slumber to ask him this. But then I would have lost a chance to snap his photo. All stealth-like, of course, because you know what they say about waking a sleeping bum. DO NOT DO IT.)
Also, why was I afraid of a bum who was so shitfaced I could have literally pushed him over with my finger? Because he didn’t even flinch when I pulled into the parking lot. And he’s lucky I didn’t run him over because I don’t generally scan the parking lot for PASSED OUT BUMS!
And, have I asked, WHY WAS THERE A BUM SLEEPING IN MY PARKING LOT? NEXT TO MY CAR?
Discuss amongst yourselves.
