Now, here’s where all the fun starts happening – Saturday. I woke up around 10:30. There was a water main break earlier in the week and a boil water order was in effect. I woke up thirsty and wasn’t sure if the water was OK to drink. I always say, better safe than sorry, so I opened up the fridge and grabbed a beer. Man, was that a good feeling! I felt like a rock star. Around that time, my friend Walter called up and said, “let’s play some video games.” I thought that was a pretty good idea. A few hours later, I was on my way to Walter and “Sally’s” place.
I usually take the train over to the city but I wasn’t in the mood. I got in my car and drove over. I like driving places; it makes me feel like a human. I didn’t have too much trouble finding a spot. Walter and I played Tony Hawk 3, very spirited game play. Then, Jay called up and said, “Let’s go see 8 mile” and before we knew it, we were on our way to 8 mile.
After that, Walter, “Sally” and I went back and played more video games. I have a video game jones right now. Damn video game jones! I drove back to Hoboken around 12:30. At 12:30, the only parking spots are on the other end of town. To my shock and amazement, there was a spot on my block! Unheard of at that hour! I was in the zone!
Sunday, my alarm was set for 7:30, I wanted to get up early, grab hold of the day and make it mine! I woke up around 11. Oh well, the day could still be mine! I headed over to the A & P; I had a date with the Coinstar machine. That machine is the best invention of the 21st century! I had about $78. That’s sweet money! I did some shopping and headed back home to drop off my goods. It was 67 degrees on Sunday; I put some shorts on and drove to Nutley to do my laundry.
I had a perfect laundry experience. There weren’t a lot of people in there — I love that. While my clothes were drying I enjoyed some pizza and watched some football. Very calming. I drove back to Hoboken and I got the best spot on the street! SCORE! It’s the best spot because no one can park in front or behind you.
So, I have $78 burning a hole in my pocket. I’m thinking about upgrading my old Playstation. I’m leaning towards a Game Cube or a PS2. I’m undecided. I took my old system and traded it in for store credit. I had fun looking around the store, I’m not sure why. I was close to buying the Game Cube but I really need to think about it.
I watched a lot of football, The Sopranos, Curb your Enthusiasm and so on.
That’s it! OK, have a great day. God Bless America.
