step right up! place your bets, folks!

cslewis suggested we start a poll about batshit’s departure date.  $5 in, winner takes all. 

in the interest of equity, here’s what we know.  she’s started to pack.  several large boxes in the living room.  has emptied out the library, dining room, some stuff in her room, bathroom.  it doesn’t appear anything has moved from the kitchen.

tie breaker question: how will batshit leave?  in the middle of the night?  with a note? an email?  a check for outstanding bills (sorry.  kidding) nothing?  keys on the table? 

backup: what item of mine will she steal- you know she’s going to take something.

    I’m torn. Part of me thinks she will stay until the 30th, yet, armed with the information that she has packed up stuff from the bathroom…well, that changes everything.

    You know what? Fuck it. I’m going with this Wednesday. Yeah, that’s right. I said it. November 21. I think she will leave in the middle of the day while you are at work. I think she will leave the keys somewhere totally random, like hanging on a jar of olive oil or in one of your shoes. There will be no note. It will be as if she never existed.

    She will take your “On the Line” dvd, or your iron. Probably both.

    In the spirit of friendly competition, we should take the money and have a spirited happy hour.

    My guess? She is crashing at her boyfriend’s for now. In any case, she will start moving everything out on Wednesday, BUT will insist that even with everything almost packed and gone, she is still living there, technically. At least until New Year’s. Until then, she will leak out like a dirty diaper: in messy, drawn out squirts, with shit everywhere.

    Also, you will never see the utilities and cable check. You will need to change your locks, because she will be taking the keys. And a few pairs of shoes. And an 80’s DVD, like Say Anything. And your cable box.

    Or perhaps, she will just go.

    My bet is bathsh*t will leave the weekend of Dec 1. She won’t be able to fully move in somewhere else until then, so she will linger. She will take a plant, some random tool, and yes, probably the cable box. You will never see the keys until her sister shows up with them weeks later, drunk and angry, at midnight on a Wednesday.

    Where has batsh*t’s boyfriend been in all this anyway?

    we all lose. besides not paying the bills, she took the curtains from the living room, a plant hanger, some movies and my rubbing alcohol (?).

Upon common theatres, indeed, the applause of the audience is of more importance to the actors than their own approbation. But upon the stage of life, while conscience claps, let the world hiss! On the contrary if conscience disapproves, the loudest applauses of the world are of little value - john adams
