- What a crazy
couple of days...
- So we saw the
storm coming and man, Columbus was a direct hit. Kept
waiting for that PINK color on the weather maps
to go south and they most certainly did not. So my
flight was cancelled on Thursday (already a day later
than I wanted to stay) and rebooked for Friday. Not a
big deal, extra day to see my dad (though anyone else
is kind of out because we can't TRAVEL). Level 3 snow
emergency, everything closed.
- Then yesterday
they cancelled me AGAIN and rebooked it for SUNDAY.
THAT was a kick to the nuts. That's the longest I have
ever been away from my kids in their entire life and
I'm in a goddamn winter wonderland that they would
KILL to be in. Oh the sledding we would do. Not
the $200 inner tube sledding... the straight up, metal
sled through goddamn trees crazy shit I did as a kid.
Oh how this hurts...
- ...but it was
SUCH a delay I decided: "Ya know what? Make
videos you couldn't make in LA. Make a song with your
dad." I mean, at least I'm not stuck in a hotel.
When the hell will I ever get the chance to have
THIS MUCH one-on-one time with my father? So once
I made that attitude shift it's been kind of fun.
And what was the adventure? Going to the hardware
- And let me add,
they had de-icer for the sidewalks. HAD IT.
However, once used? They would no longer have de-icer.
That was the emergency. Is this what happens in your
70s? Like - they did it, they had de-icer for just
such an ice storm, you can just shovel some sidewalks
so you can get your mail delivered throw on the
de-icer (salt) and all is good. Better buy some before
the next snow storm (which could honestly be years),
but now we're good.
- OH NO NO.
There has to be back ups to the back up.
- Granted, this is
fallout from pandemic thinking, but I find it
hilarious they WON at the game of planning by having
de-icer before the snow hit... and they still feel
they had no choice but to try and walk some
slippery-ass shit to get more. This is how old people
break hips goddamnit. Hopefully they never make the
egregious de-icer mistake again.
- I'm sure we'll all
be set in our ways someday. Funny watching it in
real-time though. But my dad and I had a ball making
that song tonight - I'll probably make an entry and
video about that when I get back.
WHICH SHOULD BE TOMORROW. And somehow
I stayed on my diet! Like, knocked it out! Eat
your Move! I'm pretty stoked. I've done it for nearly
20 days now and it's almost... easy? No trick, I just
simply care more about getting Volume 2 right than I
do about eating whatever I want.
- Simple as
- Alright - next
entry from Los Angeles.
