out and about twenty years ago
« on: November 16, 2015, 10:48:49 PM »
I had hit hard times and was broke which is hard enough on it's own but broke HIV and hopeless overwhelming me. I had tried unsuccessfully to kill myself a few times but failed. obviously cause  I would not be here to write this.

Anyway one night after an extended time of isolation and seclusion. I thought I should go out an mingel go to were the fun was. I went to night spot that had a live band. I got in by asking if I could come in, the door man sound the owner who asked me if I had an reason why he should dead head me. In other words why should I get in free. I said this looks like such a nice club  I just wanted to have a good time. I turned out walk away and he said OK come on in. I thought wow there are nice people out there. I had gotten a glass at the bar and went up to a couple drinking from a pitcher of beer and asked if they would share they're beer. The guy got mad and his girl friend got angry and he pored me a glass. I then watched the band and thought wow this is great. Then I asked others for beer with no luck. The band had noticed what i was doing and decided to set me straight and teach me a lesson. During this song were the line goes something like I asked the Doctor what was wrong and he said you are in love. the first verse was like that or something  Forget how the song went it was popular way back when. Then after a a few cores es and lines the singer said I went to the Doctor and asked what was wrong and he said you have AIDS and pointed to me .

I laughed at them and looked around and everyone just stared at me with disgust. I left thinking how wrong was I about people. They can be the cruelest creachers with regard for what they do or say. It just amazes me that humans think OS fun and worth saying sometimes.

well that was twenty years ago and people are so much nicer now ( NOT ) The virus is not so deadly anymore but people are not any better then they have been or will be. 

thank you

Here is another HIV story from about twenty or twenty five years ago

I worked at a restaurant as a dish washer for a while. The place went under and closed. A while later I saw a coworker from the restaurant. He said our boss from  there  had died from AIDS. When he said it he had this serious focused stare that made me burst out laughing. He was trying to be stern and show concern  . He was so confused and angry He then said it's not funny. I did not explain that My out burst was not because of there death.  I was  laughing at the look on his face  not that they had died. I was also laughing and did not take it so serious because I in all likely hood I would have and almost did have the same fate.

Maybe not funny but just a little accidental HIV incident.
