Saturday, beautiful day; spent the morning at my new favorite place, http://www.blazing-saddles.net/; went riding, saw a deer run by in the woods! You remember how nice it was Saturday, perfect day to roll down the windows while out doing errands; or push button the windows down cos I have electric windows in my Jeep Cherokee, which I hate, but I digress. So, windows down, a little breezy on the highway, push the stupid button to put the windows back up; the passenger side window…not budging. Push Push Push….ok, so, like you probably do, I pay attention to the weather forecast and I know coming in Sunday into Monday, windswept, torrential downpours. Now, mind you, it hasn't rained in forever. Ok, whatever. I get home, plastic up the window and plan to drop the jeep at the shop Monday morning. All night last night I wake up intermittently, listening to the wind whipping around, concerned the duc tape won't hold cos I swear I could hear the thin little piece of plastic I have covering the window blowing off and I'm wondering if the interior of my jeep is gonna be saturated. Turns out it was fine. I brought it in to the shop and am now waiting to see what the luxury of electric windows, which I hate, is gonna cost me. Monday afternoon…mmm…can't wait to have my ham and cheese sandwich on a croissant that I purchased at Whole Foods over the weekend. I put it in the toaster oven at work, it's piping hot, I slather it with mustard, take a few bites…hmmm…where's the ham and cheese? Oh, I see. I got a plain croissant. No ham. No cheese. Just mustard. Ok, whatever. I like croissants, I like mustard. I decide to have the watermelon I brought…in a little plastic container….just the right size to put laundry detergent in to carry downstairs to the washer, which is what I must have done at some point because THAT'S ALL I COULD TASTE! Not watermelon. TIDE. Ok. whatever. I don't know who started "whatever" but isn't it the perfect little linguistic tranquilizer.
