I’d Rather Be Alone


About a week ago, an older gentleman, neighbor and also friend of ours, had a mini stroke while playing dominoes with friends in front of our building. When my wife saw him passing out, she was able to act fast and get a hold of him, before he hit the ground. I wasn’t there, but my wife told me, that there were many people around when it happened. When he came to, he stated that he just got dizzy and that there was nothing wrong with him. He was eventually taken to the emergency room, then he was admitted to the hospital for a couple of days and that’s when they found out about the mini stroke.

Then a couple of days ago, my wife told me, that the day that our friend had the mini stroke, someone took a picture of him while he was passed out and they were waiting for an ambulance to arrive, and texted it to his wife, who was on vacation in The Dominican Republic, stating that her husband was passed out drunk. Whoever did that, knows him and his wife pretty well, in order to have her cell phone number handy. I mean, I’ve known him for around thirty years, since I was dating my wife and yet I don’t even have his home phone number. The whole thing is, that some people might feel bad because I’m a loner, but the truth of the matter is, that if I’m not with my family and that includes my dog too, I’d rather be alone than in bad company. Hey look, being a loner is not bad at all, I really enjoy it because I have time to think and be creative.

With that said! I am Audi 5000 y’all!
