My Day Today

I was awakened at 3:00 AM this morning because the window air conditioning unit in my bedroom tripped a breaker and power in my bedroom went out.  My overheated wife woke up in a frenzy.  This was complicated by her menopause induced night sweats.  I could have survived the few hours until dawn but she demanded I go outside in the middle of the night to fix it.  I don't like to go outside in the middle of the night because you never know when you will encounter an alien, serial killer, or monster.

Later in the morning, on our commute to work,  my wife complained about her job the entire way. I was tempted to jump out my car window and leap into the path of an 18 wheel semi truck.

One hour after arriving at work my entire building...thousands of people...were evacuated due to a suspected gas leak.  I sat in the park across the street from my office cooling my jets for over an hour and then spent approximately 30 more minutes, when the crisis was over, trying to get back to the 12th floor.

During my lunch hour I drove to the post office near my home to pick up a package from England that contained a Michael Jackson “Beat It” costume for my granddaughter's birthday party.  The costume is for her.  I am not dressing up as Michael Jackson to entertain her and the rest of the guests.  Since I was close to home I stopped there for a quick lunch that consisted of a bowl of Cherrios.

On my drive back to the office I felt so stressed out that I listened to Jimmy Buffett music to calm down. In my mind I was dreaming of margaritas and cheeseburgers in paradise.

I am glad this day is over.
