Thursdays In The Valley – Chapter 12

Seriously, somebody needs to clean this guys office.

“Sit down.”

I sit.

“I’ve got a big problem here.”

“What is it?”

“The girl’s canceled on me.”

“The dancing girls?”

“Yeah, the dancing girls.”

He takes a shot of something . . .

“What am I going to do?”

“Why did they cancel?”

“I don’t know, the whole thing is very unprofessional. That is not how you do business. I’m never working with them again.”

“Where did you hire them from?”

“Remember that girl from the Circle K?”

“Yeah, I know who you’re talking about.”

“Well, I was telling her about my dancing girls idea and she said she was interested and knew a couple chicks who would do it too. It was all set up.”

“You hired the Circle K girl to be your dancer?”

“Yeah, what?”

“I don’t know, seems kind of goofy to me. Didn’t she steal your wallet or something?”

“Nah, she just took the money out of it. I guess she was short on rent that month. But that don’t matter, I need to find some girls to dance . . . tonight.”

“Man, I don’t know what to tell you, it’s pretty short notice, why don’t you just wait and put an ad in the paper or something?”

“But I’m supposed to have girls here tonight. What am I going to do?”

He takes a shot of something . . .

“Man, you’re just gonna have to suck it up. Shit happens, it’s not your fault. Just go out and make an announcement that the girls aren’t coming and then offer a deal on shots or something. It’ll be alright.”

“Damn, this is not good.”

“Not to change the subject, but the guy I told you about, the graphic designer is here. He was wanting to talk to you.”

“He’s here?”

“Yeah, last thing I knew he was out back smoking.”

“He smokes?”

“Umm, I guess so, does it matter?”

“Nah, not really. Seems like all you guys smoke.”

“Is this conversation seriously going to happen again?”

“What’s that?”

“The whole smoking thing. I don’t smoke.”

“I’ve seen you smoke. No big deal, just throwing your money away is all.”

“You haven’t seen me smoke.”

“Sure I have, seen you smoking lots of times.”

“Dude, I don’t smoke.”

Ok, I can see someone is in denial. Knowing is half the battle my friend. . .”


And I know.

I don’t need this right now.

I know everything.

You don’t know anything, you’re not even real. You don’t exist.

But there’s a lot that’s real, isn’t there?

I can’t hear you now, I’m too far away.

No, no you’re not, you are right here beside me. Like always.
