I had the drive
I had the purpose
I had a plan
It was there I began.
It wasn’t a dark and stormy night. In fact it was a gorgeous summer morning.
I packed up my supplies, and then some.
I threw them in the back of my car and drove off.
Styling in my flip-flops, shorts and tank top, sunglasses shading my eyes and a floppy hat upon my head.
I cranked up the radio, and whistled along with Robert Plant… I might have sang along, too… but we won’t talk about that…
A few hours later, as I rolled up on the beach, I found my favorite trees.
Pulling out my supplies, I set the cooler full of beer at my feet.
I strung up the hammock.
And pissed the day away.
Just like I planned.
