Water is an odd thing. It can save you (Fire) It can keep you alive (IV drip) It can rain on you to hide your tears It can build planets into civilization and it can take civilization back to the first steps (Great Flood). Last night Louisville was hit with strong flash flood issues. Norton Hospital flooded...someone told me to call environmental services and I was like...ahh, just use a bucket...then we opened the office door to the hall way and I saw dead roaches and paint pales floating down the halls. Norton switched into Internal Disaster mode and stopped accepting patients. Several computer monitors are ... now available slightly used on Ebay.
Anyhow I am also a refuge. As I drove home roads were closed and cars had been abandoned in the deep waters. People had been rescued by the fire department on Critenden Drive ... oddly Its a normal big road ... how did it flood? I got home and noticed the shadows of my cats under my door...hmm...I hadnt even jingled the keys to call them...why would they b at the top of the basement apartment steps? I opened the door and quickly realized we had a problem. Apparently the shower drain, my toilet, the drain from the pool which is on the same level as my apartment and any other place gallons of water could get into the apartment ... had somehow flooded the following rooms. (lets pretend we are on titanic and I have 7 compartments with water tight doors. Mr. Murdock walks up to me and says...we have water in the Living room, the second bedroom, the foyer, your bedroom, the kitchen, the bathroom and the back closet area. Count it people...thats 7 places. 7 of 7 places of my apartment were flooded. My 160 GB HD which holds priceless info of mine from years and years ... it apparently shorted out sometime around when the DVD player and the TV converter box caught on electric fires luckily stopped by the growing level of water. I did a dance in the water as I grabbed the cords and pulled them from the walls. Electricution isnt cute so I've heard. The rugs ... right each one WAS in a room therefore it was all ... what??? gone. The computer printer ... it was leaking ink across the mirky waters. The bathroom aparently had provide such a current to push the floor mats in that room into the kitchen. The cats bowls had floated across the room and as I picked up one of the throw pillows I sit on I noticed it was leaking a steady stream of gallons of water it had soaked up onto the floor. I have a big apartment and as best I can tell it was 4 to 6 inches deep depending on where you were in the apartment.
BIG picture ... I told you the toilet over flowed. A large segment of this water included items such as toilet paper and what goes with toilet paper??? well thats across my apartment also right now. I seem to have absorbed half of old louisville's waste.
So at least my cats are alive. But anything wet I own is trash. I slept last night for 4 hours at dads ... he was infact the fourth person I called but the second person who answered who said I could sleep somewhere dry without sewage floating around the room.
Anyhow we are currently on emergency matt leffler mode. I had to cancel my fun filled visit to my bedroom with Ben tonight. ( if this is ben reading I swear I dont have a bedroom otherwise we'd both be more fullfilled at this time.) Anyhow...until further notice including Arty on Tuesday Matt Leffler is unable to support his planned nights of love.
Today david and I hit the malls. I bought new shoes...all of mine are kinda full of shit...and new jeans, and 3 shirts, and new undies and new socks.
Anyways fast forward. I am at the ever savior ever awesome and annoyingly there for you David Doyles apartment and he is taking a shower. He wants a drink ready when he getsout...but I cant make it till he is out. I started drink two hours ago cause ... no offense but if everything in your apartment within 6 inches of the floor was destroyed you'd be over it too ... anyhow...point being two hours ago I started drinking on my own without him and... I bought the vodka...I bought our 43 dollar lunch plus 8 dollar tip and I offered to buy him hot underwear ... why? cause david looks good without cute undies so if I add those on it doesnt really matter. ( WHY AM I WATCHING A HURICANE KITRINA COMMERCIAL FROM STATE FARM???) BITCH....can I pull off a late submission to FEMA ) okay so David is taking a shower and told me to plaqy a song...
Earlier...a songt played from the days of Matt and Brent...I swear a year a ago I was trying to learn this song cause I kinda figured he couldnt make it past the fold stage of 6 months. Keith Urban - You'll think of me" See...I even told him I was learning the words for our break up...he was surprised ... but a part of me was already aware I was the ex ... no matter how much I could love him ... he was always gonna leave me. Anyhow....so david clicked into queue and saiud...no you cant play that....he monopolized the music for hours...and at this second...he is taking a shower and told me to play a song...guess who is incharge now
Keith sing it. People ... dont fuck with it. I've dated before, I've moved on ... and months back I was discussing marrying this guy in canada with her. Never done that....(NOW) david is unable to stop it. "Tonight I wanna cry" is the next segment.
COURSE I KNOW...
BRENT AND I CAN NEVER GET BACK TOGETHER. IT CAN NEVER WORK. EVEN IF HE COMES BACK I MAY TAKE HIM BACK BUT THE REST OF OUR TIME I'D BE INSECURE CAUSE HE ALREADY REJECTED ME ONCE AND BY MY ACTIONS I TAUGHT HIM HE CAN TREAT ME LIKE SHIT AND STILL COME BACK...SO AGAIN AT SOMETIME HE'D LEAVE ME. SO ... I LOVED HIM. AND I MAY NEVER GET OVER HIM ... BUT I ALSO COULD NEVER TRUST HIM AGAIN. I GAVE HIM SOMETHING SO MANY NEVER GOT ... ALL OF ME. AND HE WALKED AWAY. BUT HE AND I
COULD HAVE BEEN, SHOULD HAVE BEEN, AND CAN NOW NEVER BE. ALL I CAN DO IS WAIT FOR THE NEXT GUY WHO HOLDS THE CHARM AND MAGIC HE HAD.
SO TONIGHT ... I HAVE NO WHERE TO LIVE AND HALF MY SHIT DESTROYED AND LOST THE LOVE OF MY LIFE. BUT ... I AM A BIG BOY AND I AM READY TO SEEK OUT WHAT GOD HAS FOR ME. WHICH I KNOW IS AWESOME.
