date day : part ii
The phone rang.
He had just taken a friend to hospital who was about to lose a foot because the friend would not stop alcohol or drugs long enough for antibiotics to work. He lives somewhere where drive by shootings happen. A lot. He just spent his last cent on rent and bills was I sure I wanted to go out with a totally broke guy?
[Um, no, not really, this was not my idea. Also does this mean I am paying for the date?]
I said, Say, it sounds like you are having sort of a rough day maybe we should postpone.
He said yeah thanks you are sweet.
