This isn't rant per se, but I thought this would be the most appropriate section...
The story begins two weeks ago. I was searching my apartment thoroughly, but I couldn't find my comb. When you've got as much hair as me, a comb is a very necessary tool to have (I keep one in my pocket at all times while I'm out, and it's always around me at home). Disappointed and angry, I decided to vent my frustrations a bit in the Chatbox. My good buddy Deso happened to be in there at the time, and I had remembered him saying earlier in the day that he was 'going to work out in his personal gym during halftime' of the Seahawks/Niners game. This motherfucker has a house in the woods, his own personal gym, and lives in one of the richest counties in the country. So, I thought to myself, 'Deso could spare a couple bucks!'
I kept pestering him to buy me a comb, though at no point was I actually serious nor did I expect a comb to arrive in the mail. I PM'd him my address and name, just to see if he'd come through. He was being very coy about it, so I didn't think he'd actually bought me one.
Fast forward to today, the 28th of January. Today had been a terrible day. I got just a couple hours of sleep, and got into a very heated exchange with my family members. It was just a bad, bad day. I wanted to relax and clear my mind, so I took a shower. Mid-shower, though, there was a knock at the front door. My older brother answered it, and it was our mailman. He said that he had some mail for me, but I had to pay him $1.50 in order to receive it (BULLSHIT). I was in the shower this whole time, of course, so I had to direct my brother to my wallet, so he could pay the man. I cleaned up, dried off, and an envelope waiting for me. It was from a guy named Alexander. At this point, I had completely forgotten the exchange Deso and I had (I had also bought myself a new comb), so I wasn't sure from whom or what this envelope was.
So, here I am. Sitting at my computer, I opened the envelope, and inside was a fucking comb. A COMB, FROM DESOLATIONROW. The evelope has two stamps on it - one of Ted Williams and one of Willie Stargell. Of course he'd send it w/ Baseball stamps! I was somewhat surprised that he'd actually come through. A surprise like this was just what I needed to cheer up my day, so I thank you, DesolationRow
. I propose a statue be erected of this man outside of VerticalScope offices, and we all share our fondest memories of this fine man.
For those of you wondering, the comb he sent isn't some pussy shit, either. Look @ this monster: http://www.target.com/p/conair-wide-.../-/A-13958181?
