A walk in the park with mom

My parents stayed together until I graduated high school. I knew that they were not getting along well, but didn't realize that my father was just waiting for me to graduate. The day after my graduation he moved out. He was legally bound to pay for my college education and he settled with my mother with a continuation of health insurance and with a lump sum in lieu of alimony. My mother, Gwen, knew she could not live forever on that lump sum and used it to buy into a small business. I, Richard, went on to pursue my education at the most expensive university in California. I actually hated to leave my mother alone so soon after the divorce, but the demands of her small business and its' success, kept her mind and activities occupied.

I loved being in college and away from home for the first time. The California environment and lifestyle was a big change from the Illinois town where I grew up. As much as I was having a good time, I was a little homesick and concerned for my mother. After the first semester, I came home for Christmas break. It was really nice to be home again and winter setting in was a nice change from the sunny weather of California. Being gone for several months, you notice things that you would normally take for granted if you were around all the time. I noticed my mother had lost some weight having to spend so much time with her business. Her long blonde hair was now a shorter business style. We spent a great deal of time together that December as I helped her in her business during the Christmas rush and of course we were together as a family for the two holidays. After New Years, I headed back to school.

The next semester I got involved in an outdoors club at school where we spent most of our time backpacking in the Shasta area on weekends. I was never much of outdoors person and I was surprised at how much I loved backpacking. This lead to a lot of bad jokes and old jokes we already had heard dozens of times. The semester flew by and soon I was on a plane back to Illinois for the summer. I planned on spending the three months working at my mother's business and on the weekends backpacking in the rugged terrain of far southern Illinois. I started to work with Gwen and within just a day or two, I realized that she was quite over stressed with the business. I suggested that she go walking with me in the evenings to work off the stress and stay in shape. There was a two mile asphalt walking trail close to the house that twisted through a county park. My mom agreed to walk with me as she realized the job was getting to her a lot.

Everyday after work, mom and I would change into t shirts and shorts and walk the trail. The walk provided a place for us to relax, really talk, and draw close to each other. We talked about the business, college, and California. She enjoyed hearing about my backpacking adventures so much. Our walks after work really helped my mom. She was far less stressed and continues (weather permitting) to walk the park trail to relax after work.

  • I was having dinner at a Mexican Restaurant and while I was enjoying a round of Nachos and Margaritas and in comes a man in a Mariachi Suit holding a Guitar, however the man was barefoot and he appeared drunk and he began to sing very loudly getting on the nerves of other customers.

    Then he took out a bottle of Tequila and began to make his way towards the restroom and let’s not forget, the man was barefoot and here I was eating just to see a grown man walking barefoot into a public restroom.

    I nearly threw up in my mouth a little while trying to eat some nachos and if that wasn’t bad enough, the man was actually singing in the restroom. After about a half an hour of listening to this man and his antics in the restroom he returned from the restroom barefoot and he was in his underwear.

    I was just about to throw up what kind of nasty a****** goes into a restroom barefoot and walks out in their f****** underwear and yet he’s still singing.

    Then he sits down at an empty table next to where I was sitting, he picks up his foot and starts to smell his f****** feet in the middle of the damn restaurant as I could hear everyone groaning in disgust.

    Restaurant Employees were yelling at this whackjob that he needs to leave the building because of his behavior but then he goes over to our table, and snatches my taco, puts his foot in my taco, and SUCKS HIS TOES on my f****** taco.

    At that point I was so p***** off that I grabbed his guitar and smashed him over the head with it as he feel to the floor as employees dragged his drunk, half naked ass out of the restaurant.

    It’s a shame that my night was ruined because of the antics of a drunk barefoot buffoon, seriously I hope this idiot gets some serious help and you also owe me a taco for sticking your dirty ass feet in it, people please drink responsibly or otherwise you may end up getting a guitar playing a tune on your skull next time you decide to suck your toes on one’s taco.

  • I walk through the woods on a city maintained walk path with my mom. It's great exercise and convenient for us both. At 21, my mom was still only 39 and has a hot body because she is a tennis instructor. Lately she's been telling me she hasn't without panties on our walks. Lately she's been flashing her t*** at me. I'm beginning to think she wants me to put my stick in her bush.

    It involves wearing Flip Flops to a Subway and ordering a $5 Footlong Sandwich.

    Then after ordering your sandwich take your flops off to go use the restroom and put your bare feet in the toilets.

    Then exit the restroom and go to your table and start smelling your feet to get attention.

    Then open your sandwich, put your foot in your sandwich, and suck your toes on your sandwich until Subway Employees kick you out of the store.

    So come on het to it, this is the newest Viral Trend like Tide Pod Eating, Condom Snorting, and Gorilla Gluing your hair.
