It’s Not About MePosted: October 22, 2012
as i prepare for the long drive back to Jax, i was sitting at the comeback inn waiting for my muffelatta to be up and i sat thinking to myself how this trip was a wash. i didn’t do shi….let me rephrase that.
i didn’t do 90% of the thing’s i’d planned on. i missed both family reunions (LOOOOOONG story), didn’t get to hit up HOS, and didn’t even really see any of my friends. but then i realized something.
i didn’t come out here to REALLY do that. i came out here to spend time with Paw-Paw (he’s 89 btw, and is starting to look/feel it). we hung out, drank beers, i took him to the Quarter. we SWORE we were going to have ONE drink, and had 2 rounds bought for us. when we walked back to the car, i had received a ticket. lol. we ate at parasol’s in the irish channel, we watched baseball, talked, made jokes-
and got VERY sick. both of us have been out of commission since friday. hell, last night was the first time i actually slept and ate. he’s still battling over it though. good thing mom will be back tomorrow morning.
as i sat back i realized- this trip WASN’T a wash. me and paw-paw will remember this trip for a long time. he’s resting right now, so i decided to post this. but much like the blog, my visits to NO aren’t for me. sure, i enjoy them. but i primarily come out here to visit Paw-Paw. Lord knows he hasn’t got too much time left.
the blog, while cathartic, is mostly for the readers. i can’t wax philosophically like Badger, Mentu, Ashur, Privateman, etc. but if i decided to close shop tomorrow, my life wouldn’t change a bit. i’d STILL do just fine with women. i only care to share my experience with those that could stand to learn a thing or two about the fairer sex. i simply try to give a grassroots POV to the SMP as i experience it. so this blog is really for the readers, not me. it still blows me away to have as many female readers as i do. who’da thunk it? AMIRITE!!!
thanks to all the “lurkers” who commented recently. it meant a lot to me. i’ve read why us bloggers care about comments- well…….it’s encourages us to keep blogging. GOD KNOW’S i don’t want this turn turn into discussions of Tia or Dal proportions. but every once in a while it’s good to see a new faces here. so again…thanks. and-
