296. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Note: Strong language.

Saturday, June 23rd, 7:00pm
Hillary (and Drommen)


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

Hillary: (slurring drunkenly) Fuck do you want?

Drommen: Have you been with that Sean guy?

Hillary: What’s it to you? What do you care?

Drommen: I do. You’re not taking care of yourself. And Sean certainly isn’t taking care of you.

Hillary: He’s takin’ better care of me than you have. Dick.

Drommen: I’m taking you home.

Hillary: I’m not going home. Don’t you have a date to go to or somethin’?

Drommen: I do. But you’re more important.

Hillary: Fuck off.

Drommen stares at her for a moment.

Hillary: Sean’ll look after me. An’ if you try to take me home, I’ll scream.

Drommen: Have it your way.

Drommen changes seats.


Next stop: Sunday, June 24th, 11:00am

#SoCS – Butterfly

The butterfly is one of the few insects we tend to be able to handle in profusion. Seriously, imagine going to tour a mayfly sanctuary. Or touring a housefly sanctuary, for that matter. Bleh.

Monarch butterfly

This observation was driven home to me the other day when I saw a video of Monarch migration. Here’s a fascinating video.

Sorry for the short post today. Feeling better, but have to get to a birthday party at the bowling alley. Yay!
