A Basque in Boise

Confessions

  • When I go to Fred Meyer I swing by the bulk foods section and take a sample from the chocolate chip trail mix bin, because everybody knows it doesn’t make you fat when you do it that way.
  • I use bad language once in a while.
  • Fine. I sometimes use normal words in between my swearwords.
  • I got my driver’s license at 21. In the last 15 years I’ve racked up 5 driving tickets, 2 parking tickets, and one Inattentive Driving ticket.
  • Of the 5 Saabs I’ve owned I’ve totaled two of them and crashed (in a higher or lesser degree) another two. One of them survived me, but I compensated by backing Mike’s Dodge truck into a light post on my way to picking up one of the Saabs, which was in the shop. (I don’t remember why, ok? Maybe it was  just a routine check, I don’t see why you have to assume it was getting repaired).
  • I christened my VW Touareg yesterday by hitting my babysitter’s car while I backed out of my garage.
  • I’m always happy to give someone a ride home. Seriously, you don’t need to take a taxi, I insist.
  • I’ve downloaded movies illegally from the Internet. That type as well.
  • One time I took a Latin language exam for a high school friend.
  • I will try everything to make our friendship work even though you don’t. For months and months. Even years. Then, I’ll get up one day and realize I got nothing left for you, and you’ll act all clueless and wonder why I’m such a bitch.
  • I’ve called in sick before when I wasn’t.
  • I rooted for Clint Eastwood in The Bridges of Madison County until the very end, when Meryl Streep lets go of the car handle and drives away from the love of her life.
  • Sometimes I see your chat message but I don’t feel like answering and when you ask me about it I tell you I was away from my computer.

    I almost stopped reading after confession #2. #3 is where credibility kicked back, and then the rest of the article just makes sense.

    I just read these confessions again, and just like the first time I read them, I cringed when I read “Camilo Sesto.” How can you like the music of a guy who can’t sing nor can spell his name right? I’m seriously considering defriending you from facebook. Oh, wait a minute… Hahahahahaha.
