Friends are different
Sunday, November 19, 2017
Hi Sparks Friends, I am traveling with a seven year friend Barbara. We have grown apart. She is a now retired. Sleeps in until 10 am and very very liberal. She hates my choice of classical music (calms me) and Fox News. What really stopped us from talking is I complimented her. I thanked her for sharing the driving, emotional support and love. She felt I was inappropriate. She hit my ear with a pile of Maps she had. I got a minor paper cut by my earring. What hurt and caused me silence is being called “You Bleep ryhmes with ducker starts with F, no good liar, Bible thumper traitor, etc”. I realize I am a sinner but heck why beat me up further? I told her I just would not accept her violent conduct or out burst. 4 hours we drive in silence listening mainly to her favorite Country western music which I am ok with too. We finally at 11 pm stopped at a Sonic for Food and found lodging near Phoenix AZ. Now we are riding to IH 10 to Florida. The end of a Murphy Law day where my car Check engine light came on, misdirections and quarrels.
