Homeless Update

Well, the good news is that I am technically no longer homeless. I now own a home. But technically all my stuff is in storage and all my new furniture isn’t going to be delivered until this weekend. So technically I am the owner of a very empty condo. And I have been staying with my aunt these past couple days and technically she cooks me dinner. So then. I will not be going to my empty condo, because it’s empty and doesn’t have any food. I wonder if I ever have to move into it. My aunt has a spare bedroom and seems to eat dinner pretty much every day. Hmmm.

Yesterday, during my homelessness I went to use a bathroom at Rite Aide. And this is the sign that was outside the door of the bathroom:

Huh? I looked all around for some sort of security camera, but there wasn’t one. As I was sitting there spinning around looking at the ceiling a young girl came up with a bathroom key in her hand - because apparently an 8 year old knows to ask for a key and I just stand staring at that ceiling hoping that it will magically open the door. Did I mention I’m still on pain meds?

I really have nothing more to report. I signed about 8483 papers yesterday that officially made me house poor. It is a very exciting time, in a very not exciting way.

i'da peed my pants just seeing that sign, much less waiting around to figure it out. but then, i'm currently living with a young bitch who pees on the floor at will so i'm probably not at my rational best right now.

That sign is such a crackup. Today I saw one at the snack bar at the soup station. It said , "Restaurant quality soup".

I've eaten in a lot of bad restaurants so that's not saying much, lol.

See, it's signs like that that would make me hold my water for way longer than I had to. I wouldn't know what to do either. Maybe they should just bring back pay toilets.

That is the best sign. I had a vision of you in the bathroom looking around for a camera to ask for help.
At least you still see the funny in life.

Congrats on the new pad, and welcome to the mean streets of Natomas.
