radio

Slightly drunk and home on Saturday night at 1:49 AM. Doing what the police told me to do to deter burglars after my break-in, I left my radio on while I was out. I got home and my radio continued to play while I undressed. But then it cut out and I was afraid. When I was little someone told me that if there was a nuclear explosion somewhere in the world, everything would just stop. Televisions, telephones, cars in the street. Everything. The cars were the most powerful image for some reason. I couldn't get that vision out of my head.

So tonight the radio cut out and I thought I should try the television, but I was afraid to find it wouldn't work. Thirty seconds passed and the radio came back to life with Intergalactic - Beastie Boys, which seemed like a good sign.

ALWAYS a good sign when the BBs are playing. ALWAYS.

What's creepy is that I think things like that - and after that many drinks. Isn't that supposed to relax people.

And yes, it is. Always.
