Screwin the Pooch
I really was going to go to the bike shop today. I have been very dedicated this year so far. But well, I decided to wait on the snow so I could blow the drive once and be done with it. It did not let up until 2:00 PM. By the time I had cleared the snow, it was 3:00 PM. If I hustled, I could be at the shop by 4:00 PM. Firing up the pick up and driving with other lunatics on nasty roads for two hours of retail time just did not seem worth it. SO I have rationalized and decided that screwin the pooch those two hours will have more payback than fielding calls that start with, "Oh, are you open?"
And what better way to screw a pooch good and proper than to screw it out here in the internets for everyone to see? The only better place is Congress and well, I am just not in their league. Or maybe it is that they are not in mine.
I have perused the National and World news swirling and twirling around me today. I decided it was just another installment of the same old same old. So I looked locally. All I could find today was some clown being arrested for beating up on three teenagers with the butt of a pellet gun on one of the trails we use to recreate on. One of the teens ended up in the hospital. His buddies I imagine had to check their shorts. And since the Einstein who whipped up on them was caught sitting in his car at the end of the trail, any future titillation is not happening.
The big news remains this piss poor excuse of a snow storm. I can almost hear a statewide sigh of relief. We expect the ground to be snow covered and now that it is again, we feel like Life is back on a normal track. Now bitchin about the weather will have a point.
