I drove to Florida for my birthday; Mama Blitz demanded it. It was … TERRIBLE.
Sunday: Get up early. Attempt to have breakfast with Dok. Three different places. Three different failures. Fuck it. Hit the road.
Monday: Big Frank made me breakfast = DELICIOUS french toast. Run errands with Mama Blitz. Miss seeing my best friend, My Frankie. Work on tutu. Play with Blue as much as possible, because his friends Oliver and Sadie have both died and he was despondent.
Tuesday: BIRTHDAY. Miss call from Dok. Return call rather than listen to voice message. “Can’t talk - in ambulance.” Listen to voice message. “I’ve been in a head on collision. Pretty beat up. I’m ok though. Talk later.” Freak out a little. Call friends to help locate Dok in Georgia. Freak friends out. Go shopping with Mama Blitz to calm nerves until I hear something. Stay on phone with friends and loved ones. Hide in giant flowers at Hobby Lobby. Buy stuff for another tutu. Have coffee. Find Dok. Get story. Bicyclists ran stop sign and pulled out in front of Dok, he swerved to miss them and hit the embankment when he over corrected and lost control of the car - ended up in oncoming traffic - smashed into other vehicle head-on at 60mph. Seatbelt and air bag abrasions, broken arm, broken radial bone that slipped out of the joint and broke. Pins and screws and a cast. More machine than man comes to mind. Sleep the sleep of the dead.
Wednesday: Lunch with Papa Blitz and his lady of the night. Grandpa Blitz in hospital. Time flies. Home. Mama Blitz was ANGRY that I was gone all day. A good friend visited. I made the second tutu. Had official birthday dinner. Visited with another friend and dressed her up in said tutu. Slept the sleep of the incredibly weary and unpleasant.
Thursday: Get up early. Drive… a lot. Get the most gorgeous bouquet of flowers for mah birthday. Download work emails. Eat. Sleep the sleep of the dead.
Friday: Post many photos of baby Blitz… enjoy that!
It’s official. This Blitz will not be celebrating her Berzerker Birthday again for many a year!
