Joel was not amused today. We caught him at the bus station. It's really quite funny how he looked at me and Josh and the first thing he said was: "Why the fuck did you bring Josh along?"
Of course he was pissed as well.
I had to break up the argument before it began and said simply. "Don't you read Elaine's blog?"
Joel looked at me and sighed. "Look, where I'm going is dangerous. I don't want either of you hurt."
"Too fucking late."
He didn't get on that bus, instead we are now in a motel room. Joel looks like he's seen a ghost, and besides. We need to get coats. It's pretty cold in NYC right now, and it's pretty cold where we are. Hoodies won't do it anymore.
So yes, we're all safe right now.
Well, as safe as life on the road can be. I was honestly expecting to be picked off at the bus station by some random hoodie with a knife.
Turns out I was pretty lucky, and...
Didn't die, armed with a Katana I have to keep concealed.
I don't wish to cause a fuss really, I am sure I could quote laws, but katanas are apparently weapons and wearing them in public is just going to cause a fuss. I had a fabric case for it before, and I just wear it over my shoulder.
So yeah. We're together. We're safe. Lucky us.
