Ranting a little. This town is drenched in rain. Sheets of rain they won't stop talking about on the news like I can't tell why I'm wet. Rain turning to showers turning to rain. Thanks happy guy. Idiot.
It stopped yesterday for about 12 hours. Sure, greenest place on earth etc. but not always that easy to take. So people take to trying to cheer each other up.
I understand the effort but I intend to wallow today.
Some biz cohort wrote this a.m. and wants to know "how the heck are ya doin'?"
I knew I should respond with some chipper retort and move on, but I have my plans set, so I replied :
Yeesh Some biz but it’s not the same anymore. Had the car in the shop yikes ! My mechanic is good but the parts cost will kill ya
The Plumber had to come to the house 2x because after two days upside down crackin’ a smiley at every sink in the house I couldn’t fix things more than I did. He brought some dinosaur looking machine Saturday and now at least I can quit throwing water out the window with a bucket.
Wife is stressed at end of school year so I just think of the bickering by number. Like if she says blahblabbedyyak I know it means it’s #5 which lops about 20 minutes off my life I won’t get back at the end. Nod my head and say I’m sorry at the right times. Try not to look at my watch.
Have been dealing with Kaiser and my father-in-law who is a loon. Appointments. Cancelled appointments. He refuses to leave his apartment when I arrive after juggling my schedule so I have to wrestle him, duct tape his hands behind him and push him in the trunk just to get him there. I swear if they say I need to bring him in for one more urine sample I’m just grabbing his shorts out of the hamper and taking them to the lab !
Life in the slow lane……….
Maybe it seemed cheerful. Would you think so?
