When The Grass Is Greener
Waking up late Tuesday afternoon after a particularly savage weekender, V was mildly disgusted at the state of herself. Her teeth were as furry as the penicillin covered cherries currently residing in her fridge, not a good look. A chilled one was the plan loosely rattling around in what currently resembled her brain with a quick contract pickup first to prepare for tomorrow perhaps, getting a bit of fresh air might be a good idea.
Not a chance she was leaving the house without a long shower and general refresh. The yellow of the jacket not only made up for missing today’s sunshine, but also decided the vehicular choice of the night. There was a nagging feeling that she wasn’t quite ready to hit the streets just yet, something was missing…
Ah yeah, that will be it, food.
The Porsche had felt a bit sloppy on a few corners last time, so a quick pressure check revealed that indeed some air was needed. Sometimes I surprise myself V laughed out loud, hoping nobody noticed. Gotta make sure I don’t hang about too long, need to get a decent night’s sleep for once.
Best part of town, Giggedy Giggedy Street! In and out to see Wakako.. In and out to see Wakako.. In and out to see Wakako…
As if! The mantra went out of the window sharpish on seeing Josie, Josie had Purple Haze. V liked Purple Haze. V got hazy with little to no persuasion, who had she been fooling…
Woah, she knows I’m blunted, she must know I’m blunted, everybody knows!
“Good to see you V, you’re looking colourful today, I trust you are well?”
Oh man, am I flushed? shit, not professional dumbass, not at all… shit.
“Thanks, you’re not looking sop bad yourself, can’t complain. Was just in the area and thought I’d see if you had any work for me?”
Contract for tomorrow under here belt, not that she was wearing one, V was confident that she had just about kept it together, maybe. Another quickie to calm the nerves, then I’m off home, promise.
Plans for an early night went out the window the moment V noticed Sally working the joint on the way back to the car. Her favourite dancer was a good sight through the lens Josie had introduced to the evening. Just one drink won’t hurt.
The neon of the club put the purple in the haze. One quick drink was a daydream, and she knew it. Carla was working behind the bar, and she always sorted out a few extras…
Gravity seemed a bit stronger than usual, so a chilled position on the couch where she could catch Carla’s eye when she needed a refill was the win.
Tempted by the offer of a straightener from another less than reputable friend, there was suddenly a switch in V’s inner peace. A sickly feeling crept into the world as the realization that she may have hit it a bit hard and fast tonight surfaced. Gotta get out of here fast!!! Somewhat late to the party, V’s internal homing beacon sounded, pulsing rhythmically along with the blood she could feel pounding so strongly her eyes were shaking with each beat of her heart.
Where the f…. oh… there you are you beauty. She certainly should not be driving. She’d even walked straight past the car initially. It’s not far I’ll be fine. Don’t try this at home kids***.
The motion of the car turned out to be the straw that broke the camels back so to speak and the urge to heave became unavoidable. V swerved off of the road barely missing a few passers-by before screeching to a halt. Oh shit oh shit oh shit.
Thar she blows! The inexorable constriction of muscles and the unescapable resolution of badly thought out misbehaviour reached fruition.
It was as if a filter had been removed as V began to feel better instantly so she hopped back into the car and made a hurried B-Line for home. At least that was the idea. Oh you’re shitting me she thought as the wrong turn became evident. This isn’t even close, FML!!
That was better, the right way home. Please be no police, please be no police…
“Aaah yeeeah baby!!! Made it!!!!” The locals were less impressed with her little ‘mission accomplished’ celebratory song and dance than V was, but she couldn’t care less about them right now, bed was close.
As she was about to get into bed V started as she heard a sound, someone scratching at her door? some low murmuring voices? What the hell! After a moment or two the sounds were no longer there, damn she thought, I need to sort my shit out, getting parro now, this is not a good look!
“Oh for the love of…” V said, to nobody other than herself, noticing that the blinds were still open. Begrudgingly climbing out of bed to close them and grab a quick glass of water for ‘ron, sleep was one step closer.
Finally… Never again, I swear…
***Disclaimer: I do not condone drink or drug driving, V was lucky here, one moment of madness or bad luck could end/ruin lives and not just your own. Drive safe Choombas!
