Later today, when I get released from the salt mines for good behavior. I’m heading straight to see my shrink Dr. C. I know that he is going to be pleased with me, because I’ve stayed sober since I saw him last month. But one thing that I will be talking to him about is, my uncontrollable worrying and overthinking things. I know that I don’t have control over everything that will happen in life, but sometimes, my OCD plays tricks on. Aside from the crazy meds, I really like talk therapy, because when I walk out of Dr. C’s office, it feels like if a ton of bricks was lifted from my shoulders.
OK kids, forget about all the shit that I said above. As I’ve always said, married men, specially the ones with children cant’s make plans for shit, because there’s always a last minute change by some higher power or powers, and this is my case in point.
So here I go! When I was almost ready to head on out to the salt mines this morning, my 29 year old daughter, who is on vacation with her boyfriend in The Dominican Republic, called me. She wanted to let me know, that they were on their way to the airport. If you have adult children, you know that’s not the end of the story. She also mentioned… here it goes… that they didn’t have someone to pick them up at the airport, when they land in New York City. I bet a million dollars, that you can see where this is going, RIGHT!?
So, since my wife had a doctor’s appointment, which at the time, she didn’t know had been canceled, guess who was the the next person in the royal hierarchy? YEAP! That’s right… The big cheese, the big kahuna, the main man, the fat cat, el presidente, el hombre, the man, the so called boss… ME!
So, me being the loving dad that I have always been, always taking care of his little princess, had to call my stupidvisor and put in for a vacation day. I’m still going to see my shrink at 5:30 pm, but I have to pick them up at the airport at around 1:30 pm. Now you see why married men with children can’t make plans?
With that said, I am Audi 5000 y’all!
Today I have Been Sober For 1 Month And 2 Days!
