Enough of This Shit — I’m Stepping Out

I need to get out of the God damned house for an hour or two. Working from home certainly has its advantages, with the only real disadvantage being it fucking sucks. Stuck in the house, away from the civil world, unencumbered by the vapid and disgusting conversations that could be happening with intelligent life — instead entreated to a diverse world of looking after dogs and scheming ahead for dinner. Now that I’ve taken to cooking, I find my life to be very similar to, dare I say, a house wife.

Emasculating? Perhaps. Then again, I’ve always been comfortable inside of my skin.

Boring is more like it. The repetitious cadence of hearing the plumbing whizz throughout the house — and seeing how the afternoon light casts off the scales and recoils — makes me want to bash my brains against the wall and out.

I’m sufficiently entertained with my online ‘persona’. I could only imagine how dreadful life would be without it. What do work at home Dads do when they cannot find conversation amongst a common minded folk online? Do they simply whither away into dust and go bizarrely insane?

Don’t talk to me about the fucking markets. I’m the fuck — out of here.

See you in a few.

PS: I’m not actually going out to do anything fun. As a matter of fact, I’m going to the grocery store. F-M-L.

    It is much more entertaining to interreact with whizzing plumbing and recoiling afternoon light if you GET STONED after the markets close.

    Although I do wonder how that would affect the Fly’s missives around evening time.

    I did the housewife thing for 6 months in the UK 25 years ago. Three kids under 7, all the cooking, cleaning, lunches, school runs, shopping, laundry etc, plus mowing and garden stuff.

    Easiest gig ever. I can’t believe women complain about it so much. No pressure and a few hours every day to do whatever the hell you want. It was great.

    So you are a house fly then ? I’ve always done all the cooking. Gold is coughing up toward 1300 on the futures tonight…

    Doesn’t get any better.

    Plenty of time with the kids even if they drive me up the wall occasionally it’s probably still less than those poor schmucks who need to try too hard to have fun on weekends.

    Cook controls the diet so I eat what I want and the family eat healthy.

    Cleaning kinda sucks.

    Every day surf or run. Washing day is usually weight sets between loads…

    I do all the cooking for our family of four. Not out necessity, but as they say, if you want it done right…. My wife has a hard time with hot dogs and scrabbled eggs. Prime Rib & Yorkshire Pudding is out of the question.
