Things are slow on my end.
So, let's get on with something else.
1980's - my girlfriend has acquired tickets to see Neil Young, with "Crazy
Horse" - "Rust Never Sleeps" tour.
Stadium or Coliseum - don't really remember.
We get to the venue - parking is expensive!
I come up with a cheaper plan - I'll park on a side street and save some
As I'm locking my truck up - a couple of kids come up and tell me -
"I'll watch your truck for you"!
I give one of them a "5".
We walk down the street to the venue.
As we're sitting there - I have second thoughts -
Oh, oh - have I made a mistake??!!
I even thought of going back and moving my truck - lots of expensive,
interesting things on-board!
I'm sitting with a "Booful", girl; with a concert starting, that I think is
going to be very good.
I push my "paranoia" out of my mind.
Sometimes, during the concert - I'm concerned - I keep pushing my
negative thoughts out of my mind.
(The "die" has been cast!)
Yes, the concert is very, very, good!!!!
- up there in the "10" range.
As were leaving, I get up to walk down the aisle with my girlfriend behind me - my truck has entered my mind - what will I find??
As we're exiting, my girlfriend tells me that one of the 2 "yah-whos", that
were sitting in front of us (who had been turning around during the
concert and "eyeballing" my girlfriend) - had grabbed her, in an area
around her "lungs"!
(Prodigious, pendulous, protuberant)
I'm not a happy "camper"!
We wait outside the main entrance for a while - to see if the 2 clowns come out - At the moment, I wasn't thinking about my truck!!!
(Do you think I was "perturbed" - scale of 1 to 10 - about a 20!!)
We walk back to my truck!
What will we find?!
There's my truck - everything is as I left it.
The two kids run up and say "we watched your truck".
I gave each of them 20 dollars.
You should have seen the look on their faces -
I think, I've made somebody happy!
They deserved it!
Unfortunately, (for me) my girlfriend got to see me in "Full-tilt"-"Boogie",
The concert was great -
I'll never forget the look on those two kid's faces!
Nobody got harmed (for a few minutes there, that's not what I had
"up my sleeve"!)
(I'll also, never forget the look of fear on her face!)
The lesson here -
tip your parking attendants!
