I’ve been struggling with my head cold all day. I didn’t want to sleep in too late, but I wasn’t much use either way. Summer went home to try and mow, but had trouble with her mower. The most I could do was muster enough energy to take a shower in the late afternoon before going to my parents’ house.
When Summer finally got back with the girls, we all loaded up and went to visit my parents for dinner. Autumn, who turns her nose up at everything, had a couple ribs and some steamed rice while the rest of us had fish soup. I probably should have added some hot peppers to my soup to help with my congestion, but I just wasn’t up for the space tonight.
We stopped by Sonic on the way home for a couple drinks, and they seemed to have forgotten us for about 20 minutes, so I had to walk up into the building to see what was up. There, the kid told me their system had messed up and didn’t show that we had checked in yet, and I guess he didn’t bother to look and see. Back at home, we finished watching Mamma Mia, and then I put on K-PAX and watched it with Eaddie while everyone else went to sleep.
I wanna tell you something Mark, something you do not yet know, that we K-PAXians have been around long enough to have discovered. The universe will expand, then it will collapse back on itself, then will expand again. It will repeat this process forever. What you don’t know is that when the universe expands again, everything will be as it is now. Whatever mistakes you make this time around, you will live through on your next pass. Every mistake you make, you will live through again, and again, forever. So my advice to you is to get it right this time around. Because this time is all you have.
