"Me?" He passed her the joint, and pushed the blanket down past the staircase of his ribs. "I remember pouring out a bottle of water somebody left in our freezer at a party, this was '14, '15. It was sitting in the sink to thaw, and I just poured the water out and threw the bottle away, I didn't even think about it."
She pulled on the joint, and handed it back. He watched the paper turn black. "I didn't think about it at all. I think about it a lot now; I think about it all the time."
She tightened herself against him, and asked him who he thought was to blame.
"I dunno. The men who wrote up the bible, I guess. But that's old, it's meaningless." He toked. "I guess I blame Ted Cruz."
FRIDAY, JULY 3:
A new Florida law aimed at providing clarity regarding police body-cam videos just sort of makes things more murky. As if it matters. Keep filming, people, always.
SATURDAY, JULY 4:
The oldest tagged bald eagle in the country died after being hit by a car. I honestly can't think of anything more American.
A bunch of folks who don't mind being called bigots rallied around that big ol' Confederate flag that's flown next to I-75 in Tampa and pissed off non-bigoted commuters since 2008. They probably said something about heritage, and believe it, too.
A Seminole woman who was observed driving her SUV through a building while intoxicated turned out to be the person who lived there. So it's cool then, right? She's got this!
SUNDAY, JULY 5:
The Lightning signed Jeff Tambellini. I don't know what that means.
And finally, Texan Tommie Woodward reportedly said "fuck that alligator" before jumping into a body of water ringed by alligator warning signs, and being subsequently killed by an alligator. With all due respect to his family and friends, Tommie Woodward was a fuckin' moron. You don't have to pretend to respect the memory of the guy who jumped into the alligator-infested waters after saying "fuck that alligator."
