On President’s Day in Oak Park, IL

On President’s day I slept, because I was emotionally drained from the day before, I stayed in the whole day, got my tea and sat here to write some posts for the blog. I was dreading coming back to my apartment in Oak Park, Il I was off from work, and I took the day off from school and even going outside in Oak Park, IL. Driving through the area on Sunday, early in the morning was stressful enough. The area is crazy as hell to get through as is, on a Sunday morning but there are a couple of churches in the area so the traffic gets kind of crazy due to all the parents wanting to drop their kids off for Sunday School. I remember those days when I was innocent before I was even warped by Oak Park, IL.

When I got up and told Sarah fuck the shower and the breakfast I have to get back to the apartment and run through Oak Park, IL like Harrison Ford in Raiders of the Lost Ark (the opening scene)! I hate to be so dramatic but she went through the village a couple of times to visit me or go to Mama Thai or even going up Harlem Ave to get to the Northwest side. Hence, Sarah definitely understood. One of the problems I had was the amount of runners that had one kid in a big ass stroller, one kid barely keeping up with them while they were walking a huge fucking dog, meanwhile, they could not get across the street. As they all finally got across the street I rolled down my window because it was soooo nice out, and yelled: “Stop multitasking!” I mean geez their multitasking could get their kids ran over if I was not paying attention due to texting or was one of those road rage freaks you always hear about on the evening news.

But this did not happen once but like four, FOUR fuckin times! You could not script this coincidence in a movie the audience would have found it as unfunny as I did with this stupid repeating joke occurring over and over in a five-minute span during the film or Television show. Usually, a 24-minute drive was now an hour long as I was trying to get the village of Shit Park, IL by side streets. After life was done testing my patience I got home showered ate some Cocoa Pebbles cereal (yeah I am an adult!), wrote and caught up on my Netflix then slept. Oak Park, IL is so draining that it wasted my weekend and my free day off, ugh, I really hate this place.
