Time’s Up

30 Jul
On the porch again with trusty pitbull
sprawled out. It's overcast today
but comfortable. I'm starting to focus
on my reading when the cell ring-a-dings. 

It's a friend who is undecided whether
to keep his girlfriend or break up. He regularly catches
her cheating but always makes
excuses for why he hangs on. He describes
her as a user, a manipulator who needs a place
to live - so she appeases him with sex. He cools off
for a while but continues to smolder within.

He calls for guidance but usually does the
exact opposite. 

Times up. Dog and I go in. Reading
will have to wait because of a wasted
