Here I am, sitting on my bed harmlessly doing some work, when something catches my eye. Suddenly, a flying bug is drifting straight towards me! In my panic, I reach for my notepad that I am currently using and with all the strength I could muster I swat the motherfucker with all my might.
I don’t know how bugs do this, but whenever you swat at them, they fuckin vanish. You always think you got them, but you never do.
I look to see if I did kill it, but I knew that I didn’t. Next thing I know I’m standing in my doorway, and the fucker is flying a foot away from me around my lamp. I run into the bathroom to get some tissues, and when I get back… it’s gone.
This was two hours ago.
It’s lurking. It’s somewhere. It can see me, but I can’t see it. All I know is that the bloodsucking sonofabitch is gonna come back out when I’m sleeping in and give me West Nile Virus.
Mosquitoes contribute NOTHING to our ecosystem. I have no shame in killing them, and I fully intend to if it has the nerve to show its face around here again.
So anyway, I was working at a baseball game today, when my editor calls me to rush over to a car accident that supposedly just occurred and try to take photos and find out exactly what happened. Apparently a car had crashed into a building or something.
I’ve never done anything like this before. I’m not an investigative journalist, I’m simply a sports reporter/ creepy guy that hits on high school girls. But, I agreed because he said he’s give me 25 extra bucks.
I get there, and I see no major accident. I see a couple cars totaled, but nothing into a building. I asked to black kids (around 24-25 years old) that were standing around if they know what happened.
One of them responded “Yea of course we know what happened… we almost died!”
They were the ones whose car was hit. They were nice enough to give me the general details and enough information that I could write the article about it. They were on their way to Applebees at the time. So much for eating good in the neighborhood!
I recorded the details, took my snapshots, and then headed back to catch the rest of the baseball game.
Pretty exciting day in the life of Weingrad!
