Singin’ the Blues…

A conversation between me and the bf as we walked home from Bluesfest…

me: “I saw these guys today, pushing a table and chair set home in a shopping cart. They’d obviously just bought it from the Sally Ann.  I felt for them. I’ve been in that kind of financial state before.  I thought about offering them a ride, but I wouldn’t be able to fit both them and their table in my car.  Besides, it will give them a story to tell late one night at a party.  I have stories like that…. like living in a $155/month rooming house with condemned plumbing while saving for school.”

bf: “I never had to live like that.”

me: “Yeah, well, you were a child of privilege.”

bf: “Maybe so, but I don’t have a sense of entitlement as a result.”

me:”True enough, but you’ll never be able to sing the blues either.”

bf: (looks incredulously at me): “Come on…. I’m a LEAFS fan…. 40 years without winning The Cup?”

me: “I stand corrected.”

    scuffling to get by on next to nothing a week, been there, done that, couldn’t afford the t-shirt. the school of hard knocks is educational but not what i’d call fun.
