There's nothing scary about me. I'm very much a people person. Some of the best times of my life were when I was young and did contract work. I would fly in, fix the airplane, machine, or whatever the company wanted fixed. You got your bonus check and a small retainer to tide you over till the next job. The company called us, ta dah, roamers.
I got to meet people and make a lot of unique, interesting friends. In my off time I still liked to travel. I had a van. Everybody remembers those old conversion vans, right? Well, I had money and transportation so I just drove around the country stopping where ever it looked interesting. Medium size towns are the best. They don't have that small town strangers don't fit in mentality or that coldness big city people have.
There all all kinds of places to meet people. Bars are okay, but I liked diners, grocery stores, even churches. Church people are so good about helping strangers. You just have to be polite and respectful.
I loved making friends. The whole getting to know them process is delightful. The problem is, after you get to know them, so many people are flawed. They all seem to disappoint you in the end. They wind up being selfish or cruel. I just can't stand being disappointed. That makes me want to punish people for their flaws. I think it's what God would want, don't you? Punishment is a private thing, best done in privacy. There's no place like the backwoods for privacy.
I always did it right. Buried them deep afterwards so the animals wouldn't disturb them. I picked flowers and prayed for them. I know they all went to heaven, because they all begged so hard to be forgiven.
Those days are all in the past now. Now all of you are my friends now. You all seem so nice. Gracie, Barry, Babs and all of the other wonderful people here. By the way Babs, have I mentioned how much I love your new avatar.
I'm sure none of you would ever disappoint me would you? Say you wouldn't.
Don't be scared. Come with me! It'll be fun. Promise!
