I just got home from happy Tuesday. I have to write down this conversation before I forget it.
John – I’ve been sober for a month and a half now. No more pain killer’s.
Me – That’s great! I’m proud of you. You’re going to like the new you.
John – I like myself better when I’m on pain killers actually, I’m more outgoing.
Me – You have to acclimate, you’ll be fine.
John – What do you think about this?
He points to his septum ring.
Me – I like it, I think it fit’s you. You can always flip it up if you need to be professional.
He flip’s it up his nostrils.
Me – I thought you always had that pierced?
John – I did, I just taken it out for a while. Girls don’t find it attractive.
Me – Aren’t you dating someone?
John – No, Brandy broke up with me cause I’m clean now.
Me – That’s good. She would only pull you down to her level anyway.
John – I have a headache.
Me – You should drink some water.
John – I’ve been drinking water all day.
Me – Do you have tension in your neck or jaw?
John – Yeah, a little in my jaw.
I nod my head.
John – It’s probably from the coke I did at work today.
Me – Uhhh……
I thought he meant coke as in the soda. How would soda give you a headache?
Me – Huh…..
This is pretty much the exact conversation as I remember it. It’s just as mind numbing reading it as it was hearing it.
John – Ha ha, I quit pain killers, but I guess coke isn’t much better. My jaw is twitchy.
Me – Yeah, that’s probably it then…..
