The most surreal experience I’ve had was back to my hobo days. One of my issues in life was the bus station, that area was a pretty good place to get hooked up with whatever, and I had to be super-friendly with everyone, and like, I had an issue with random men hugging me whenever I went down there by myself…Like, I can’t believe that this was a thing and I put up with it? So much that happened to me during this period and I just look back at it now and wonder how/why I lived in that alternate universe.I was downtown and ran into a guy that I had gotten high with a year before, hadn’t seen the dude in like a year. He told me he had to catch a bus in a while, and wanted to hang out in the mean time.
One day I was downtown and ran into a guy that I had gotten high with a year before. I hadn’t seen the dude in like a year. He told me he had to catch a bus in a while, and wanted to hang out in the mean time.
I didn’t find any harm in the idea, I was on my way to the bookstore to buy some malt liquor- yes, there’s a bookstore that sells malt liquor in this world. Don’t ask me WHY there is, but it exists, lol. Pages and Pipes on College Ave in Appleton.
I had this dude in tow, he had two black eyes and I was holding him, and I’m basically holding him down while trying to get my business done. I think I communicated the fact that I was taken and going back to my boyfriend and a couple friends, told him it was alright if he came with, kinda expected him to leave after approximately twenty minutes or so.
So, I manage to get stuff done, despite the fact that he almost got us kicked out of the bookstore, and I get us back to the park and he lays down next to me, almost on me and falls asleep.
Yeah. Basically the guy I was dating left me alone for twenty minutes, and I come back with a random forty-year-old man. AHAHA. I tried waking him up at some point, and the whole “I have a bus to catch” story falls apart, and I don’t remember how long he was there, but it got super awkward and my ex-boyfriend had to go into big scary man mode and it took like twenty minutes of that to get this guy to accept that he had to move on.
Basically, I went through a period of my life where I was the flame and men with substance abuse issues were like, moths? I don’t get it, dude. It’s not like I’m a complete goddess, lol.
