I'll just have to admit, that tonight wasn't too bad at all. I spent a good part of the night up in the com room with my feet up on the desk flipping through the teevee channels.
I've gotten good enough at doing the inventory that I can get through it in just a few minutes or so and I get extra time to just sit and relax in between the rushes of people coming and going.
Brother D brought me in a small bag of deer sausage from his successful hunting this season. He also included some sliced cheese and Ritz crackers. And a handwritten blessing on the bag.
That man is so nice sometimes that it makes me feel bad.
Hmm... That's a bit of an oxymoron or something, eh?
Let's see you explain that one, Rev!
He's so nice and cheerful all of the time that he makes me feel like I'm a mean crotchety old man because..... well.... because I am a mean crotchety old man.
But being nice is Brother D's nature and being a rude bas*ard is mine. And after eating that deer sausage I'm vowing to be a lot nicer to him. That stuff was awesome.
There was a little bit of excitement down in the wobblehead yard. Not sure exactly what but there were a couple of excited radio calls and then somebody was sent to the Hive in cuffs. But I sat there, perched up on the chair ready to spring forward just in case something happened.
Of course if something kicked off I would have gotten as far as the sally port and Sgt Puddle would have just knocked on the glass and said "You can't go! Get back up there!"
What the hey, I got a little adrenaline buzz for awhile. But, wow! When I came back down off of it I had to walk around and slap myself in the face to stay awake up there.
Before I forget (again) let me look and see what tomorrow is. Just for FYI, today was Brandied Fruit Day. I hope you all enjoyed it, speaking of getting a buzz.
Ah, yes. Tomorrow is Babbling Day. I hope they are referring to streams and brooks and not lunatics. That could be interesting....
Is anybody interested in this "Day" stuff or should I just drop the concept? Let me know your thoughts!
