monday summed up ...

Took a short break from work to get my head shaved at my usual barber.

When he was done and I'd paid, I reached to one of the loops on my jeans to retrieve my keys, which I clip using a kind of carabiner clip. Not there. Not in my pockets. Not on the ground near the chair.

Fearing the worst, I go outside.

Yep, they're in the truck.

In the ignition.

With the engine still running.

Haven't locked my keys in my vehicle, let alone with it running, since like my senior year of high school, and it wasn't a big deal back then, because the trunk of my 1976 Pinto opened with a flathead screwdriver.

Luckily, I keep a spare key at the office, and my pare' brought it to me on his way home -- even more luckily, I caught him just before he was leaving for the day.

Then it was back to the office for more work.

At least my day ended well -- homemade spicy sloppy joe dinner, WOW ... though I stayed up way too late ... which I'll pay for in about ... 5 hours.

So ... how was YOUR Monday?

MONDAY SUCKED. THERE IS THIS GREAT LINE AT THE END OF EVERYBODY'S JOB DESCRIPTION IN MY OFFICE IT SAYS "OTHER TASKS AND ASSIGNMENTS AS REQUESTED BY MANAGEMENT". IT WAS THROWN IN MY FACE AS I TRIED TO EXPLAIN THAT BEING A HEAT AND AIR CONDITIONER REPAIRER WAS NOT MY JOB. I'M A BOOKKEEPER FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE!

HAVEN'T STOPPED BY FOR AWHILE. JUST WANTED TO SAY HEY. THANKS FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO VENT. I MISS YOUR MOVIE TRIVIA.

I locked myself out of the house once, in the winter, snow on the ground, and no shoes. The button on the door must have been pushed in or something. I had to run out to get my stupid dog who refused to come back inside and whamo...next thing I know, I'm in foot hell.

My Monday was great! Well, sorta great for a Monday at least... course my Monday's are usually pretty good, in fact, they are even sometimes great, cause I love what I do and can't wait to do more of it... but perhaps I shouldn't say that around here? ;)

Must be gettin' old Dman, keys and with the engine running no less. Sad, really.
