the girls are gone. gone to the desert to bask in the sun and be spoiled by their grammie sharon and grampy lewis. i miss them already.
a strange thing happened on the way home tonight. i played a video game against the cashier at chevron in topanga. i bought us a drink to help us stay awake and some snacks. bugles to be more specific. i swiped my card. the machine beeped. the cashier punched some keys and looked at me. my machine beeped. i hit a button. his machine beeped. he typed at the keypad. my machine beeped. i typed my pin. back and forth we went. he had shifty eyes. i didn’t blink. finally i won. he handed me my ribbon. or a receipt and i ran out the door with my fist in the air. i’m not sure he got it.
