Found Rosa sitting down at the shopping center this morning. She was eating a bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit as she drank a coffee. It was a beautiful day if rather overcast with a slight cool breeze.
"Hey sweetheart," Rosa says as I walk up. "I've been worried about you. You weren't answering your phone this morning."
"I unplugged it," I reply. "It was making me paranoid."
"I guess you made it through last night."
"I packed up my car with all my survival and camping gear to leave," I say. "I was going to become homeless again."
"Well, I am glad you decided not to," She replies with a worried look upon her face. "When do you get your next injection?"
"Monday," I say. "It's going to be an interesting weekend."
"Oh, George does have a new car, by the way," Rosa says. "His mother bought it for him and he has to pay her back in installments."
I smiled thinking of George. Nobody deserved a newer car than he. He drove those old junkers for years.
"It looks in really good shape, almost new," Rosa added. "He asked about you. He said he owes you some money. I wish you wouldn't let that old drunk take money from you."
"I'm headed across the river for lunch," I say ignoring the comment about George as I start to walk off.
"I am coming over this afternoon so look for me," Rosa replies as she slaps me on the ass.
"See you after lunch," I say as I smile from her deviousness.
