Am I being paranoid?
I finally got out to walk tonight, the first chance in a while I have had to walk/talk with my friend Mike. We are not in the same unit, so the only time I see him is on the nightly walks.
So I got to vent to him about the recent "cleaning" of my locker. Just to give you an idea, I lost a $20 calculator, $17 in stamps, over $10 in tuna and mackerel, $10 of condiments, a new $5 box of Tide (which would have lasted for the rest of my stay), and $6 for a new lock.
The next time I go to the store, I will be doing minimal shopping and will go more "rustic" in my eating. No spices or extras, just what I need to make it to my next store day, and hope that I do not get locked down.
I am not sure, but perhaps the break-in was possible retaliation for the blog? Am I being paranoid? Well, the staff was sort of "cool" to my loss. I am still not sure of cause and effects, just one of those things.
How come there is so little news about what goes on in prisons? And look what happens to the little bit of stuff I write. They wanted to throw me in the kitchen!
Mike got his "date" that he will be leaving and heading to his Halfway House. He has got his plans all laid out. I told him how happy I was for him and that how bummed I was not being able to plot my immediate future. But I do have hope, at least until the court rules, that perhaps I will be free soon.
In the meantime I have got to reorient myself to the "alone" model. My time will be spent reading and writing. So your mailbox will probably begin to get "stuffed" more frequently. Hopefully the writing will be the witty, interesting, and insightful ramblings you have come to expect.
