into the void i went
usually i talk to y'all about some voyage across the desert, but this time i got to talk about the concrete jungle known as the city i recently took a business trip to. it's a city not too well known except billy joel had a song about it. i had an errand to run and a place i had to find and ended up in a near death totally lost spiral. i needed to get to south 4th street and i procured directions from mapquest, the same cowardly operation that left me in limbo upon arrival to the approimate proximity of my motel (another story for another time). so i took the directions to 4th street, followed them exactly and crossed a bridge and found myself on 5th street. 4th had turned to 5th with no warning at all. and the place i was looking for on 4th street must've been some bad dream because then i found myself in some godforsaken hellhole part of town where i was quite sure i'd never make it out alive. luckily i had my daughter along to talk to because otherwise i might have died of panic
so we finally made it back to base and yes i was stupid enough to try to find south 4th street again the next day. drew up a whole new set of instructions and these worked, but get this, we only found the part of south 4th street we were looking go after 5th street turned to basin street which then turned to 4th, omg the madness.
later we went to mcgungie which turned out to be fruitless and no picnic on top of that, we had one more run to go before leaving town and got stuck in bethlehem,, holy fuck i just right now as i was typing this had a flashback from all those hours of driving in the rain, and i didn't even mention the rain which ruins lives, i'll leave it at that. we coud not find our way out of bethlehem, we were stuck there like baby jesus somebody had the thought.
but i made it home. fuck.
