Thank Heavens for small mercies.
Well, the body has it’s own ideas as to how it wants to treat me today. Feels like I have some kind of bacteria growing in my throat. Wonder if I can doctor it with over the counter meds. Will have to go to the chemist tonight. Think I still have some andolex here. Might even have some tonsyllit. Not that I have tonsils anymore, but apparently you can still get the symptoms, even if you don’t have tonsils – some kind of bacteria or other as I said. Will have to see how it pans out during the day today.
Today will be the last day of feeling holiday-ish. The last day that people are taking things at a slower pace than usual. On Monday everything will start again. The rat race. The phone calls. Irate customers. Switchboard issues. Reps. People. Traffic.
Oh well, suppose we all have to make a living during the year so we can go on holiday at the end of the year 😉
As for my year end – I wonder where I’ll be then. Destitute? Or sorted?
One has to wonder. Will I have a cool job, with decent money? Will I be able to take leave and go to Thailand with the rest of the family? Will I be able to save enough money to both fix the teeth and go on holiday? Will I meet somebody that’s worth knowing in the following twelve months? Maybe, if I play it, I will win the Lotto and then I can go and buy myself a man 😉
Oh well. Life will happen. It usually does. Not much we can do to stop that from happening.
Time to get the day started now.
Hope it’s a good one!
May Joe R.I.P.
Joe passed away. His will provided $30,000 for an elaborate funeral.
As the last guests departed the affair, his wife, Helen, turned to her oldest friend.
“Well, I’m sure Joe would be pleased,” she said.
“I’m sure you’re right,” replied Jody, who lowered her voice and leaned in close.
“How much did this really cost?”
“All of it,” said Helen. “Thirty thousand.”
“No!” Jody exclaimed. “I mean, it was very nice, but $30,000?”
Helen answered. “The funeral was $6,500. I donated $500 to the church. The wake, food and drinks were another $500. The rest went for the memorial stone.”
Jody computed quickly. “$22,500 for a memorial stone? My God, how big is it?!”
“Two and a half carats.”
