Driving.

I love to drive.

Alone.

I always have.
It calms me,
and I get to spend time with my boyfriend.

Dave Matthews.

We have been together since 1994.
When he opened for Phish.
That Michael Phelps thing was just a silly fling.

But I am rarely alone anymore.  

Usually it is the girls and 
Jack Johnson
or 
worship music
or if I am feeling really, really nice,
the Disney Princess CD's.
(Thanks Aunt Amy... really.  Thanks.)

But I was alone today.
With Dave.
(Janey too, but she was asleep, so it was as if I was alone.)
It was raining and he was singing.  
Just for me.

Bliss.

Until...
I looked to the left of me.
Terror.
Horror.
Fear.
The moment with my love, 
ruined.

By whom?

Edward Cullen?
Wearing purple?
Eating a banana?
On a popsicle stick?
Dipped in ketchup?

No.
Worse, much worse.


This lady.

Wearing this.
On a way to a party.
To make children cry.

I will never forgive you Princess Pipsqueak.

It might be months until I have another rendevous with Dave.

  1. I think hate is such a horrible word, but I might really hate clowns. I just want a little quiet with my i-pod,no Jonas Brothers and no Hannah Montana. Too much to ask???

  3. I think Dave would make even a creepy clown not so bad.

    Yep, '94 was when my love for Dave began as well. I saw him at a tiny bar in Houston. It was love at first sight and first sounds. My three year old digs it too, and that is a good thing!!!

  6. I too love to drive alone :)
    It started as a teenager, when I'd be in some silly fight with my parents, I'd just leave and drive for awhile (or head to the gym). and I'd return a different person.

  11. I cannot believe Dave is cheating on me with you! I refuse to believe it.

    That is one scary clown. Who would torture their children with a clown? (No offense to the clown-lovers.)
