January 24, 2018:

I took the hostess for extensions.

They were very expensive. Hundreds of dollars including the products to take care of them. Quite a hefty haul for the salon that day.

She loved them, she liked me, she never kissed me.

Within a week she hated them and when I did not offer to pay to have them removed she stopped returning my calls.

When she was blacked-out drunk my murderous alcoholic ex sometimes taunted me with, "You have no friends, you have to buy friends." I think of that sometimes.
