Texts with Hulk: March Madness Edition

Yesterday on Facebook I mentioned what a rude prickly bitch the grieving process was. A couple hours later I got a text from Hulk.

HULK: What are we grieving about today? Not getting to see me tomorrow?

[I was supposed to go to Atlanta and see Hulk during his three-hour layover at the airport. But I have–wait for it–too much work to do. I was also supposed to spend the night at Miss Doxie's, where she said we were gonna "blow this shit up," whatever that entailed. I hate everything. I am Cinderella.]

JUNE: Yeah. There is a giant void in my life now.

HULK: Just weepy today?

JUNE: Oh, I watched a movie. Took place in LA. Lots of shots of Santa Monica Pier. Just too many reminders; I'll get over it. I mean, there's all that basketball to look forward to!

HULK: Were you watching Forrest Gump?

JUNE: Falling Down. No! It was an independent film. Am certain you were all over that. It's called Like Crazy. Google the trailer and weep.

HULK: I saw that…loved the symbolism.

JUNE: Oh, you did not. Did it have a magnificent otherness? Did you enjoy the negative space? And other pretentious things?

HULK: Negative space? I wouldn't know what that was if it hit me in the face with a shovel. Now, Die Hard. THAT was a movie…

JUNE: I don't know why it is I adore you so. I hope you're sitting down but I never saw Die Hard.

HULK: It was filmed in LA. Hey, the minor league baseball that we have here is the farm team of the LA Dodgers. It's all cyclical…

JUNE: I wouldn't know what a farm team was if it hit me in the face with a shovel.

HULK: That was funny. Way funnier than Crazy Horse or whatever.

JUNE: Are you watching fun sports tonight?

HULK: Yes. Watching hoop. Want to join me?

JUNE: Not unless there is a naked basketball player of color in the room as well.

HULK: Eww. No.

JUNE: Think I will stick with my original plan. Am going to dive bar with a guy from my old work. But he has to leave early to (wait for it) watch basketball. Sports. Cockblocking me since 2012.

[I took the picture because I so enjoyed the "everyday" thing, but then I went on to love "Paps" Blue Ribbon.]

HULK: Dive bar doesn't have a TV?

JUNE: It probably does, but I won't be IGNORED, Hulk.

HULK: Sorry…I was watching the pregame show. What, now?

Sighhh. I have no idea if Hulk won the "one large" he went on to text about. I hope you got your large…whatever, Hulk. And have a safe flight. Tell Sadie, Tee, Fay and so on I say hey when you meet them at the airport today! Hope there's no negative otherness.

  4. Oh yeah, Mrs. Oh….Moonlighting was a great show. We never missed it. I was pregnant at the time and we considered the name Maddie if said baby was a girl.
    Where are the pictures, Airport People?????

  8. I sent all my pics to June! And Tee, I commented on your blog again… you could also just tell June to forward to me maybe? Don’t know why you’d be getting bounce-backs. Stupid computers.

  9. I’m late checking in, but we had such fun at the airport meeting each other and Hulk and Not Chloe. Everyone was terrific even if Hulk and Not Chloe wondered about us. Tee even asked a Georgia Tech graduate and his father to group shots of us.
    On the way home from the airport, I stopped for some celebratory shopping in honor of Karen in VA’s birthday…if grocery shopping is considered celebratory. Then home for dinner and a movie date with Mr. Sadie…from the comfort of our den. (All of the…are in honor of June’s date tonight with…friend.)
    June, I know you did not miss the Atlanta trip because of your date. I just wanted you to feel better about missing Airportapalooza due to all of your work.

  12. : : Garden Girl : : Can't believe June's real life date takes precedence over blog updates. I am sooo old. How do you know when you don't get out enough and are living a little-too-much vicarously through others?....oh, wait... says:

    Oh, Sadie, so glad it was fun. Virtual friends are now real-life friends.
    Now…..*tapping foot impatiently*….I’m holding my breath until we see some pictures, June!

  15. I saw Like Crazy months ago at the artsy-fartsy theater downtown in Denver and I’m still haunted by it and his face at the end. The minute it ended, I looked over at my 16YO daughter and she announced, I’m crying!! I know we’ve moved on to Hulk at the airport, but seriously, I loved that movie.
