184. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Note: Strong language

Saturday, March 3rd, 6:00pm
Hillary (and Sean)


Hillary sits at the window. Sean takes the seat beside her.

Sean: So how’d it go with your lover boy the other night?

Hillary: I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Sean: He said no, didn’t he.

Hillary: I still don’t know what you’re talking about.

Sean: Did he show you his “thing”? (chuckles)

Hillary turns to the window, ignoring him.

Sean: I hear he likes showing it off.

Hillary continues to ignore him.

Sean: What’s his stupid name again?

Hillary: (snapping at him) It’s Jake, and it’s none of your business!

Sean: He said no. I knew it!

Hillary: Go fuck yourself.

Sean: I think you’re the one who needs the fu…

Hillary: FUCK OFF!

Sean: Oooh, touchy! All right. Fine. I’ll back off. (looks to the front of the bus) Hey, look who’s getting on!

Hillary: (sits up straight and sees a mother and daughter: strangers, boarding the bus) Fuck off. (she pushes him out of the seat as he doubles up laughing) Asshole.

Sean walks to the back of the bus chortling.

Hillary: Asshole!


Next stop: Sunday, March 4th, 1:00pm

#SoCS – Hoping it’ll be fine

My eldest son, who lives in the basement, is my constant source of support when his brother acts up. Which is a wonderful thing, or will be until–as he pointed out yesterday–it isn’t. I can’t and don’t expect him to live here forever.  Yesterday as I was battling with Alex over one of his regular behavioral issues, my son said point blank that if I don’t stop giving in to Alex, he’s going to walk all over me when my support moves out.

So this morning I decided to battle it out alone. I got yelled at and punched (he’s seventeen, but only the size of a ten year old; his little knuckles are bony, damn it!), but I managed to get him to calm down and behave himself. I have to do this. Otherwise, I won’t be fine.
