It was warmer on Friday when I went to work, which was a good thing. Except it was supposed to start raining somethine after noon. Bummer! I was planning on getting the truck washed and get the salt off it.

It was a payday, so I stopped at the credit union to get some cash for the house. But there was a repair truck at the ATM working on it, so I went straight to work. I got there about 7:15 a.m.

I had been trying for the last two days to call my barber shop and make and appointment for Saturday morning. But, every time I called, I got a recorded message, saying " Your call cannot be completed as dialed. Please try again later."


Now, normally, Victoria and I go out to lunch on Friday. It's kind of a tradition. But, we were out together on Thursday and are scheduled to meet Michelle on Monday for lunch.

So, instead, I blew her off. I drove to the damn barber shop and asked for a Saturday appointment. My barber said they had just learned from the phone company that their phone had been out for three days!

I was hungry, but there are no restaurants in the immediate area. So, I went to the Kroger's to buy some lunch. Now normally, I buy the "Krab Pasta Salad."

Sidebar: Okay, so it isn't really crab, but its good.

But, they didn't have any!!!

So, I bought a half pound of macaroni salad instead. I also picked up a package of Oscar Meyer thick cut bologna as well.

Then I headed back to work.

I stopped at the ATM and it was still broke. Damn!

Sidebar: I understand people who don't carry cash, okay? I'm old, but not that stupid, But when I stand in line and pay with a credit or debit card, it's like play money. When I have to hand over a $100.00 in cash, it makes me think...

I got back to work with 20 minutes left and ate half of the macarroni salad.

The bologna I'm saving for the weekend.

It staarted raining around 2:00 p.m. I know becauee I offerd to help Nghia carry some super-duper laptops out to his car and got drenched.

Since I had gotten there so early, I didn't feel that bad leaving at 4:30 p.m. I stopped by the credit union and the ATM was fixed. So, I got some cash and then went home.

Now, here's when things went wrong.. I watched the news and ate the rest of the macaroni salad for dinner. Then I had to shit.

Sidebar: Is there a nicer way to say this?

But, when I put the toilet lid down, it freaking broke off!

Sidebar:  This is  male household (besides Caley) and the toilet seat is normally up.

I adjusted it so I could use it and then went to the living room to read until bedtime.

But the omens are not good..


  1. you do have your problems.....broken phones, atm machines, toilets and all this in the pouring rain......have a good weekend.

  2. True that, bro. Thanks! You too.
