Fisher Family Introduction
Work has been pretty steady these days. We were finally able to move out of that crappy apartment building above the pharmacy. I really didn't like the idea of Lacey spending her entire childhood in that one square room. This house has two bedrooms. She's so excited to finally have her own room.
I stand with Lacey in the morning while she waits for the bus. The bus stop is right in front of the house but I still like to see her off in the morning. She tells me that she's a big girl now and doesn't need me to come with her but I just can't help it. I'm home for the majority of the day while she's at school and I go to work shortly before her bedtime so I like to spend as much time as possible with her.
Later that afternoon, I had my old friend Dale come over to discuss a gig. He brought his girlfriend Brittany with him. Dale and I graduated both from Ashland High School a few years back and we used to be tight. Our lives kind of just went their separate ways, with me having to take care of Lacey and all that. I was never really quite sure what happened to him - he kind of fell off the map for a minute.
As it turns out, Dale owns a club in Oakhurst Pointe and remembered that I DJ'ed back in the day. He offered me a gig at his club that night. I was completely stoked! This was a big opportunity for me. Lately, the only gigs I've been able to score were mediocre but this, this was a chance for something bigger. College kids, drunk college kids, love when I spin. Hopefully this gig will turn into something more permanent.
As soon as I got there, the bar was already packed. School isn't even in session right now but these kids are still partying it up. Sometimes I regret not going to university - not that I would have gotten in anyway. My life just went in a way that I could have never imagined. Don't get me wrong - I wouldn't trade Lacey for anything in the world, but sometimes I feel like I missed out on being a kid.
The set up Dale has here is sick. The DJ booth is up on the second floor in a glass cage. It was awesome. There were people rocking out on the dance floor all night.
I even had a few girls come up and try hanging out in the DJ booth with me, not that I minded. This one girl, I didn't even catch her name, was crushing me really hard. She seemed cool and all but I think she was a little too interested in me before we even talked. I guess she just liked what she saw? Don't get me wrong, she was pretty to look at but I'm not really in a place to get into anything with anyone. I have a seven year old at home. I got priorities.
As the club's owner and manager, Dale gets hit on by a lot of chicks. Even when his girl is right there. From what I remember about him, he never had a girlfriend he didn't cheat on, even back in high school. I was impressed with his rejection to one of the girls at the club since I don't remember him ever turning down anything.
After a little while, I was the only one left in the DJ booth until Brittany came upstairs. She said she liked the view from up here. What I didn't realize, is that we had front row seats to Dale flirting and dancing with some of the girls on the dance floor.
