Well i just got a new job and i ended up having to move when i started. My wife was unable to join me because she still has one semester of school left before she graduates. I was able to find a wonderful apartment with the help of my mother, http://www.kcradioblog.blogspot.com/, and being the saintly woman that she is she even called up one of her old friends to see if she would take me in for a week or two until my apartment was ready for me.
I arrived in wonderful ames at about 4 pm on sunday july 19 anxiously awaiting the next day when the job started. my car was full of crap that I supposedly couldn't live without and had to take with me. Shelly, my mothers friend, was so excited for me to come that as soon as i arrived she rushed out and started helping me unload various things from the depths of my car.
Shelly: Is that it? (as she pulls the last suitcase from the trunk)
Me: Yup, I think so.
Shelly, pointing accusingly at the trunk: George, what is that?
Me: (blushing as she pulled a box of edible underwear from the darkness) Ummm...
Holy shit I barely even know this woman and now I have to explain why there is not only edible, but crotchless, strawberry flavored, edible, gummy, panties in my trunk.
Me: Ummm... Well that was a practical joke, pay no attention to that!
A good start to a lasting friendship is an awkward silence.
