Economic Recovery

Today in the mail I got:

  • A letter explaining that a certain Corporate Bank can help me if I'm having trouble making my payments
  • 2 Debt reduction/debt forgiveness solicitations
  • A letter explaining that the limit on my Macy's card, which has a zero balance, has been reduced
  • An offer for a new credit card that will give me airline miles

In my email, I received a notice that, since I'm such a good customer, the limit on one of my credit cards has been increased.

This gives me the impression that, as a nation, we don't know what the f**k we're doing.

Smuggling Golf Balls

"My throat feels like it's closing up," he said.

I offered him tea or coffee.

Why didn't I put on a surgical mask and keep 20 feet back?

My throat feels like it's closing up. Bah.

...And Then I Went Soft

Seriously, when did I start liking babies?

I wasn't even washing her off as dinner preparation or nothin'! In fact, it was her mother washing her off in my sink, but man, that's just cute.

I am proud to have known her, and lucky to have been her relative.
