Surreal stuff, Reads and Eats
Yesterday I was happily doing some activity on the computer when the news came on and I heard a familiar name. I looked up and staring at me was the older face of the guy I brought home before the Mr in high school. Now we never officially dated or anything, he told me I was too good for him and knew he'd screw up a great friendship. But I knew he was broken, tried to show him the good side of life and we evenutally lost touch. To see this man arrested for a crime just took my breath away. I had seriously just tried to Facebook stalk him 2 weeks ago to see what he was up to but didn't know it would be 15 to life! I sat there and cried. I cried for the man I used to know. The man I hoped would pull himself out of tragic circumstances and make something of his life instead of getting caught in a cycle of abuse. I have a pic of us together in high school in parenting class and I hate that I'll never be able to look at that pic again without thinking of this now. I watch Beyond Scared Straight...good friggin' luck dude.
I have been so bad about taking pics of my dinners consistently and I'm sorry about that. I do have a few pics though if ya wanna see 'em.
