LA Hair

She told me she moved to LA so she could dye her hair & be in a band. A couple of years after that someone told me she’d quit her band to go to cosmetology school. I guess it was easier to give up music than to give up the hair.

Imaginary Numbers

I have a friend who does numerology in California & she called me up one night & said that 444 was the number of Wal-Mart, which is 30 percent off of 666 & we were both amazed & then I hung up the phone & said now I remember why we moved to Iowa.

Hope Chest

I threw out my hope chest a while back because it was too big to carry around with me all the time, but I still kept all the blankets & clothes. I just dress in more layers now & I’m hoping to move to a cooler climate soon.

Future Plan

I’m trying to pack for the future, he said, but I think it’s too much stuff. So what are you going to do? I said. & he shrugged & said he was going to trust that everything would work out. & he added, I’m moving back in with my parents.
