*The song for this post is Nothing Left to Lose by Mat Kearney*
After their last catastrophe with the toilet, Tyler and Carina had been fairly unlucky with things breaking in their house. If it wasn’t the toilet, it was the shower, or either the kitchen/bathroom sink. Today it just happened to be the TV.
“Of course the fucking TV breaks…” Tyler grumbled to himself. “It’s not like I just got home from running all over town delivering Sing-A-Grams and wanted to relax or anything! Nope. Not at all!!!“
After Tyler got the TV fixed and sat down to turn it on and watch something, his phone started to ring.
“You’ve got to be kidding me… This better be important!” he said as he reached into his pocket to grab his phone. “Oh! Hi my darling Carina. How are you?“
“Hey sweetie!” Carina’s voice said happily into the earpiece on Tyler’s phone. “I’m doing well. Long day at work, but you know how that is! Anyways, I just wanted to remind you that we got invite to that party by one of my co-workers. So be ready by the time I get home from work, okay?“
“Fuck… Baby, I completely forgot, and I’m just so tired from work… Plus I had to fix the damned TV on top of it all… I think I’m going to have to miss this one.” he said frustrated.
“Ty, you promised! I told them we’d both be attending…” her voice dropped, disappointed.
“God damn it… fine. I’ll be ready when you get home…” he sighed.
“Oh good! I can’t wait to see you. And don’t forget to wear your tux! The dress code is formal tonight. Love you sweetie,” she cooed into the earpiece.
“Love you too…” Ty said as he took the phone away from his ear and pressed the end button. “This is just… fantastic. I can’t wait to go to this damn party. Yay…” he said sarcastically to no one in particular.
“Something’s in the air tonight
The sky’s alive with a burning light
You can mark my words something’s about to break”
