Friday...

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."

WTF?

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..
