Happy Day After Valentine's Day!
So, Valentine's Day morning, I walked into the shower and saw a contraption hanging from the shower head. It was a waterproof radio.
And It. Was. Beautiful.
I can turn it on and off without fear of being electrocuted. I can listen to my favorite morning show without blasting the radio for the neighbors to hear. I can shower for two hours without fear of wasting our earth's natural resources by using the power cord for the traditional radio.
For me, it was the most romantic gift ever.
And when Sam came home from work, and I was still in the shower, he knew he had done well.
Now if they'd only invent a waterproof computer so I could blog in the shower.
By the time I was done, my skin was hanging off of me in wrinkled splendor, so I knew I'd probably lost a lot of weight too. It's the gift that keeps on giving!
Tomorrow, I'm leaving for the Dark Days Tour to Texas.
Here's the schedule:
Thursday, Feb. 16th Dallas Southlake Barnes and Noble at 5pm
Friday, Feb. 17th Austin Barnes and Noble (on Research Blvd.) 7pm
Saturday, Feb. 18th Houston Blue Willow Bookshop (on Memorial Drive) 4pm
There's a driver coming to pick me up at my house to take me to the airport. This is an entirely unfamiliar concept for my family.
My mom: "How are you getting to the airport?"
me: "A driver."
mom: "You mean Sam?"
me: "No, a driver. Like a driver for hire."
mom: "You mean you're paying Sam?"
me: "No, mom, I mean they're sending a car for me."
mom: "I do not compute. Do you need me to take you?"
me: "No, it's too early in the morning. I'll stick with the driver."
mom: "But where did they find this... driver? Does he have credentials?"
me: "His parol officer vouched for him completely."
mom: "That's not funny."
me: "There's nothing funny about the after-prison reform program. Especially for habitual offenders. But I want to support them."
Sometimes, I love messing with my mom.
So, is anyone going to be in the Texas area? Will I meet any of you there?
