Just a word now and then about working in a prison and for the Department Of Corrections. Plus a good bit of ranting here and there.

Another 3 Count Night
Three! Three counts! Ah-ah-awww.... snap. At least I wasn't in the control center for this bit of silliness. I actually made it out to 30 yard where I was supposed to be.
And after last night I squelched any curiosity I had about what went wrong and never even called anybody to find out.
As long as it finally cleared and nobody had escaped, I didn't want to know.
But they did make me walk that dang mile-long inner perimeter check three times, the evil swine.
Being as how the 30 yard shack has no power at all I was forced to go to 30 house to heat up my dinner and make a pot of coffee and got repeatedly trapped by the Mighty Sore and had to listen to his interminable stories.
The man has been everywhere and done everything and been richer than Queen Isabella and heartily satisfied every single woman north of the equator, all the while checking his Nordic good looks in the mirror.
I do say he tends to make me feel rather sub-par and ill-contented with both my life and my intelligence.
But I bore the brunt of his attacks on my less than stellar life with aplomb and let him regale with tales of his daring-do because I got to sit down and rest my tired feet in between the microwave and the coffee pot.
That was an equitable trade for the assault on my ears. They are still stinging a bit, but it will fade.
Wednesday is going to be Button Day. It doesn't specify between a shirt button and a push button. I guess it's up to you. It will also be National Fast Food Day, International Day For Tolerance, Prematurity Awareness Day (but that might be a day early) and the Day of Saint Gertrude.
