things get colder.

It was raining and shitting and snowing and I realized I'd forgotten the fucking umbrella. I was six minutes late already and Sam was still asleep and my wife was in Tokyo like always and why the fuck isn't the 'kid' up yet for work? I kicked over his amp on the way in to yell at him, I mean, living at home at that age was bad enough, now he broke my toe, and I felt something sharp. Like really sharp, like doctor sharp, right through my toenail and it felt warm and I screamed because it hurt and he woke up and stared at me, same dead eyes as ever. The eyes woke up and met mine and he said, 'Oh shit, dad, you didn't just step on that, oh fuck,' and that was when we both looked down.
