Leaving Louisiana in a Driving Rain
I tried sneaking away from Vivian yesterday before my new girlfriend Rita realized I was going. I didn’t quite make it. She wrapped my neck in a damp embrace, trying to keep me from leaving.
Rita chased me, smothering me in wet kisses. When that didn’t work she tried to blow me off the road. Finally, at the Oklahoma border, she gave up and let me go. Some relationships were never meant to be.
