Ghost

This is not where I live, its where I used to live.
Life in the rat race is as good as can be expected. I put a lot of hours in this week, so generally I’m pretty tired.
On Thursday night I’m working at the liquor store, and in comes what seems to be a normal fellow. I direct him to the bottle of Absinthe he was after and he proceeds to pay for his purchase.
Payment complete, he stops and looks right at me and says “ I don’t like your shirt”  I say why too many colours for you? He says no, I like the shirt but not on you, you need a goth look, ya know black hair, leather jacket and something more that suits you. I’m like OK I’ll get right on that!
Last night two what I think are younger girls come in. They come up with a bottle of wine. I ask for ID and they both have it. I check one girls it’s fine. The other girl was fumbling around in a pink Guess purse tryin to find it.....Finally it comes out, and I look, unbeknownst to me - “she” is a “he". I say do u have another piece of ID this says your a boy. He replies yeah I am a boy, and shows another piece of ID. I said no judgement I’m sorry for the mistake, he’s like I get that all the time.
Lady boys in Edmonton....whew knew!

In other news:
Have you ever worked with someone that drives you absolutely insane?
I have this pleasure 5 days a week- 8 hours a day!
He is a nice guy, but likes to argue about everything! I mean everything...so me being me, I have started a social experiment with him as my lab rat.
I’ll let you know how it turns out, if I don’t strangle him first.

He is the one on the left. I’m sitting on the roller filming this, because I always have to wait for him to make love to the asphalt!
He would be better off holding one of those SLOW signs at our job site to direct traffic.

Verbatem

Well here it is, my monthly post!
Today, I was thinking about a job as a travel writer. The problem is I have no $$ to travel :(
I suppose I could try to get a job that allows me to travel and secretly type stuff on the side!?!

I like my new job here in the rat race, I know it will get me the means to at least go on a super cool vacation one day! So, I will slug it out for the next long time

PS- I’m gonna start playing the lottery in hopes of winning a trip around the world with 태리
