Boise or Bust!

Jon wants me to go to Boise still. He doesn't care what it costs. I have a ticket reserved that he will pay for by midnight tonight. I woke up this morning and the glands on my neck are swollen, I think my cold has morphed into something worse like an inner ear infection. I feel like my ears have water in them. My doctor won't be able to see me till monday, he told me to go to some US Healthcare place which to me sounds like the equivalent to McDonalds doctor.
I am trying to decide if I just tell Jon, I am sorry, I must stay home as I am afraid my ears will 'splode on a airplane right now or just hope the swelling in my left neck gland is gone by Saturday afternoon.

Jeannine saved me by agreeing to play mommy for me for the night. I love her and owe her bigtime for this!

I want to taste the world
before it slips away
and play with things
before they break
and show you things
you've never seen
and watch your eyes
in the reflection of all new things

Would you taste like imagination?
or memory?
or bits of broken everything?

Because I saw what could have been,
and stopped before it ever was,
it never was
it never was...

Your shadow makes me lonely
and my secrets kept you safe.
Expression and excess turning to exasperation.

I've swallowed what you never taught me.

All I see is borrowed time
and these ghosts that follow me.

Let me play the advocate
and you can be the treason.
Divide me
times three
to find one whole person standing.

Silliness on the bus...

There I was, standing at the bus stop waiting for my ride home. The bus pulls up. I wait for the people who are getting off to exit so I can get on the bus.
The first guy gets off the bus and says, "I love your hair!"
I say, "Thank you!"
The next guy gets off the bus and says, "Wow! Your hair is really cool."
A few more people exit without incident.
Then the last guy gets off, looks at me and smiles and says, "Wow! I LOVE your hair! Now you better try not to burn the whole world down!"
I said, "I will do my best!"

What I want to know is what is it about my bright red hair that screams I am a pyromaniac?
