    did something dumb 

     

    the day started out good. amber woke me up just after noon and we just stared at each other

    and she said youre the hottest man alive

    and i said

    damn straight.

    then she said, can you get out of here for a few hours today.

    and i said

    damn straight.

    first stop was this purple church ive seen a million times.

    earlier this month we saw a dead guy being examined by the coroner at the los feliz triangle. while we were there i asked the two guys looking if they were journalists. one was the other said he worked at this purple church

    and you could get showers there for free.

    and they were always looking for clothing donations.

    who among us doesnt have a few coats we could give up, and that turned into like six bags of clothes that ended up in my trunk… for nearly three weeks.

    today i finally went and they were so great. my buddy brian was there. the guy running the joint was there and as we talked i asked, hey can i get this on video, people need to know. and he was all sure.

    so then i emailed that traveling youtuber living in his car because he’s been taking cold showers in Venice.

    then i drove to claremont to see rob, his wife, his mother n law and his teenage son.

    we all just could not stop talking because we have all been quarantining so long and they have really done a spectacular job with their trees and lights and art and gadgets.

    at one point i pointed and said, why do you have this if you have that?

    carrie said, thats a jacuzzi and that’s a hot tub. they’re different.

    i was sent home with some fruit, berries, and a spotted aloe plant.

    and also i am invited back to talk to carrie’s mom whose family was so strict that they wouldn’t let her dance. ever.

    she said the first time she ever danced was at rob and carrie’s wedding.

    if i only knew i was witnessing history.

    on the way home i stopped by walmart and saw this Christmas tree was being sold for $0.

    before i could even understand what i was seeing, a sweet young lady saw me and asked, are you going to take it?

    things that are cool to do in a mercedes: blast iron maiden

    things that are not cool to do in a mercedes: tell a lady driving the not a mercedes that she cannot have the free tree.

    the dumb thing i did was go into the walmart looking for baseball cards

    because baseball cards are not worth catching a terrible disease.
