Soup de Jour

You’ve heard of Soup de jour? Well this morning I felt like the target de jour on the highway. I was sitting at a light when the dipshit in a pickup behind me bumps my butt. If I’d been watching in the rearview mirror I'd have freaked.

Thanks goodness it was just a bump (I barely felt it) and not enough to do any damage. If I’d still been driving the Miata, he’d probably slid up over the trunk into the passenger area.

I made it the remaining 5 or 6 miles without any problems, but I sure kept an eye on dipshit in the black truck who was still following me.

When I pulled into the parking garage, I had my foot on the brake anyway, and came to an abrupt stop. Some chick in a red sports car coming from my right didn’t or couldn’t read the stop sign. She just went sailing right on through; bare inches form my front bumper.

I was beginning to wonder whether I should even get on the road to go home. But I did get home safe. Thank you, God.

I was asked the other day what the purpose of my blog was. I'd never given it any thought and couldn't come up with a good answer. Besides, why do you need a purpose?

The more I thought about it, it became clear. The purpose of my blog is to laugh at life. If this offends some people, I am sorry.

One Year Ago

One year ago my ladder fell apart while I was standing very near the top working on a painting project. After I crawled out from under the rubble, includinig a large mirror, I drove myself to the hosiptal only to find out that I'd cracked two ribs, my left shoulder and badly bruised my left kidney.

This Memorial day I finally finished the project. Without incidence I must say. It was sure nice to know that I had a sturdy new ladder that wouldn't develop metal fatigue at a crucial moment. Of course, in the beginning, the old one (really old) belonged to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. I have no idea why I put up with that ancient piece of s--t for so many years.

I can't tell you how many people have come up to me at work to say that they went out and bought a new ladder after hearing about my ladder wreck. At least something good came out of the mess.
