Less angry, just in a bit more pain. My ears feel like they're popping every five minutes. Argh.
This weekend doesn't look very promising. By an unfortunate turn of events, Murm is moving back home - which means I might have to go help her pack, if I'm not too incapacitated from oral surgery tomorrow, and that might mean confronting someone I don't want to face right now, or witnessing a confrontation of some sort. I confess that I'm pretty ticked off at a few other family members right now, because a couple things have happened this week that might cause a rift very soon in the overall family structure on my dad's side. I wasn't angry earlier today, but I am now - angrier than I've been where my family's concerned in four years.
It's definitely not a forgiving attitude, but it's how I feel. If you can, please remember my family in yer prayers - there are things happening that I don't like at all.
Okay, lemme say this: I refuse to believe that getting my wisdom teeth pulled out is really that bad. So there!
"So is everything going okay at work?" Dad asked on our way home today.
"Yeah," I shrugged. I wasn't in a talkative mood, really, but this is my dad I'm talking to, after all.
"I guess they're giving you work on a week-by-week basis, huh?"
"Yeap," I answered. "I'm pretty busy right now, but I'll have to ask Hope if they want me to do anything else if I finish early with the work I'm doing now. I like my job, though."
Dad gave me a look. "Just remember that you're doing it for the money."
Sheez, talk about a conversation turn-off. I got a little annoyed and didn't say much after that. As a matter of fact, Dad, I'm not in it for the money at all. I'm doing this to stay busy and because you didn't want me to stay home all summer long.
[rant] Granted, a person needs money to survive in the kind of society/economy we live in, but at the moment, getting greenbacks from someone is more or less an extra perk. I'm pretty much well-off financially, I doubt I'll be homeless anytime soon, I'm keepin' my nose clean and I'm not bored. My job right now seems more like a volunteer position with a small commission attached to every task I finish. So, no, earning money is not really a big time priority for me right now. Don't make it seem like earning greenbacks is a major lifeline or something. [/rant]
I've been surrounded by rhyme-throwing gangsta wannabes all day. It's been an extremely amusing experience.
One good thing sibs are definitely good for: laughs.
Lots of 'em.
In this instance, watching Larry and his friend Briano make fun of each other through rap has got to be the most hilarious thing I've seen today.
Tip of the iceberg.
