A sad crescendo of existence. I can laugh now.

Low moments that have made for good stories.

I went to visit a friend (female) in a nearby village.  Upon seeing her, I hugged her and started humping her leg involuntarily.  I instantly started crying- from laughter and sadness.  I realized I hadn't been hugged in almost a year and I fucking INVOLUNTARILY humped my friend's leg!

I got locked inside a train garage- inside the train.  I was so scared.  I called my friend, Eddie, and asked him what I should do.  He didn't have much advice.  I eventually tried climbing through the window, but reconciled that the drop would be too much.  So, I pried the door open, jammed my backpack between the doors, and jumped.  I was about a 1/2 kilometer outside some random city with the equivalent of $.50 in my pocket.  Not a good situation.

I saw a man fall down a flight of cement stairs with his bike in hand.  I didn't do anything.  I waited to see what the other women would say (one being his wife) who witnessed the event.  She yelled, "asshole".  I laughed.  Then I felt bad for who/what I had become.

A friend and I spent three hours deconstructing a text that may/or may not have had romantic implications (the ellipses were a definite sexual innuendo).  That was the most exciting thing that happened for many weeks.

A friend called to tell me he found a human ear on the ground.  I asked, "Did you take a picture?"  Was that really an appropriate response?

Determined that it was easier to leave the food out on the stove because then I wouldn't have to reheat it the next day and dirty another pan.




Saw a dead body in the trunk of a car and didn't think much of it.

Definitely had more than one "I-just-want-to-go-to-the-forest-and-eat-meat moments".

Have used something other than toilet paper to do the job of toilet paper.  And was proud of myself for being so resourceful.

That food looks good. And I think the ear comment was totally appropriate.

That food was good. Lots of cabbage!
