“There is blood on your ass,” Rosa told me this morning.
I reached around to the back of my jeans and then looked at my fingers to find more blood. I had gone to get my injection of Risperdal this morning and the nurse must have hit a vein. I can’t explain the delayed effect of the blood.
I went inside the grocery store to the bathroom upstairs. I looked in the mirror and it was a rather small amount, but made a stain on my blue jeans. I bought some bandaids, put one on, and continued with my day. I fixed two cups of coffee in the employee’s lounge of the store and headed back out to carry one to Rosa.
“What are you going to do today?” I asked her as I sat back down upon the bench on the outside.
“I am going to enjoy this sunshine for as long as I can,” She replied.
“It is so nice, isn’t it?” I said as I smiled.
It felt rather balmy after being so dank, dreary, and cold for over a week.
“Will you take me down to Opelika?” She then asked.
“That’s a long drive,” I said “And I only have a half a tank of gas for the rest of the week.”
“I will put some gas in your car.”
“What time?” I then asked.
“Pick me up around noon,” She then said.
“Well, let me get home to get a shower and I will see you after lunch,” I replied.
I bid Rosa farewell and walked the ten minutes home. Rosa has the chance to get her license renewed after a suspension and you have to go to Opelika to get it done. I agreed to take her as my license is expired and I need to get it renewed as well. We will kill two birds with one stone. I will check back in probably this afternoon sometime.
