Today’s song, “Slide” by the Goo Goo Dolls (1998) is about a pregnant girl and her situation, slide always means, I gotta go. We consistently used it in the military during my career. It was a throwaway: “Hey, I gotta slide, see you later.”
Don’t know why it came up today, though. Just started up in my head, “Why don’t you slide.” Just one of those free-association memory things, I guess. Or maybe it was a subconscious desire to go somewhere and do something under the kind of sunlit blue skies
We’ve had a family of skunk move in to the space under our house. Man, were they a noisy, rambunctious bunch.
And now they’re gone.
I’d gone out and put a board in front of the damaged vent. The board was just leaned back against so it could be moved. It was there as a marker, to provide an idea about what was going on, when.
Well, it was still in place this morning. There wasn’t a sound all night. Apparently, they’re gone.
I’m a little disappointed. Was my house not good enough for their family?
And they didn’t even say good-bye.
2020 continues to be a year of disappointments.
