It all began here. at this cash register in J-Mart. There was a dream I had a few nights ago that I can't stop pondering about..
A girl. I couldn't see how she looked but the setting I can remember. we were holding hands, laying on the cool grass on a warm, summer night. it keeps playing again and again in my head until this time she was talking about laxatives.
suddenly, reality decided it was time for me to face it. An elderly woman seemed to have been talking to me for a while at the register. I gave her a puzzled look as i stood there in silence. She shook her head and gave me the exact change for both boxes of laxatives. That damn lady babbled out loud saying how I needed help.. sheesh im not the one who can't shit on my own.
My Co-worker and buddy Julian, approached, chuckling at me while patting me on the back. He jokingly stated "Damn man.. You really need to get over Catherine already." I just shook my head in disappointment and replied "I- Already am.. over it?" He leaned over and looked into my eyes "See, women come and go. Like money! Until you find-" Julian quickly stopped and slowly started to smirk "Ahh.. there's another one, isn't there?" "JULIAN!" I stopped him.
This dude laughs it off and kept patting me on the back. "I'm just fucking with you, playa. Oh and another thing! Think you can cover for me? I got a date with Tina from around the corner." I smiled and said "Only if she has a sister" Julian then smiled "Oh she definitely got a sister" "yeah?" I smiled at him while drinking my bottle of water. "In her mama" As soon as this idiot said that, i spat out my water. He leaves happily laughing "Thanks man! I owe you one!"
