Thursday was another chilly, overcast day.

I went to Ten Yen for lunch and got the almond chicken.

Sidebar to Jake: Yes, the cashier came over and thanked me again for my help. But, no, no free lunch!

Then I went to the Walgreens on Joy and Newburgh and bought a humidifier (recommended to me by Courtney).

It rained off and on in the afternoon.

Back home, I sawed off the toothpicks with a hacksaw blade (You can snap them off, but they leave a stub). Then I used my Father’s awl to punch in holes right next to them.

I screwed the door hinges back on and, for the first time in years, it closed!!!

I warmed up some chicken noodle soup that Courtney had brought me. She wanted my critique. She warned me it needed salt and pepper, because she feeds it to her toddler, Aiden.

So, I taste-tested it. It did need some salt and a little pepper. But what it really needed was flat leaf parsley.

Sidebar: Chicken noodle soup and parsley are, like, best friends. 

I set up the humidifier and let it rock!

I watched some TV, but went to bed early (again).


  1. Dad, I thought you had a humidifier...did it break?

  2. No, they crap out and clog up after a year or so from the shit in the city water. They all (even this one) suggest using only filtered water but I'll be damned if I buy bottled water for a freakin' humidifier.

  3. How much water does it use? Distilled is fairly inexpensive...
