Hey Dude

There I am.

12:30 AM. Bag of trash in hand, making my way down the stairs and thinking it is effing cold.

In case you are wondering, it is a clear night and the temps are in the mid 30s so it feels colder than it actually is.

All of a sudden Smoky next door whooshes her door open.

She exclaims, "Hey dude!"

I look back over my shoulder and reply, "Hi."

She asks, "Do you have a cigarette I can bum?"

I say, "No."

She then asks, "Do you know someone I can buy some from?"

I say, "No" and think to myself is she serious?

She says, "Darn it. Thanks anyway."

Door closes.

Mmmkay goes through my mind.

People, it is 12:30 AM on a Sunday night/Monday morning.

There is a 7-11 within walking distance.

I know it is crazy to be taking the trash out at this time of the day but I think she has me beat in the crazy department, at least by a smidge.

And yes, the tag is still on the noel reindeer as of today.

Peace and Love Peeps.

And I thought I was up early. What was she doing? Sitting by the door listening for people?

That falls under creepy in my dictionary. I think she left crazy in her dust.
