Another day dawns.
The radio alarm jolts me from my dreams.
I slowly open my eyes and bid the three cats sitting on my chest a cheery "Good Morning!"
"Feed us." They stare back, inches from my face.
Reluctantly I swing my legs over the side of the waterbed and pull myself from its warm caress.
Oh well, La-De-Dah.
At least I got to sleep in today, for I have a doctor's appointment to get a refill on my Asthma meds.
After tending to the Zoo, letting the dog out and getting showered, the calm of the morning is broken when a full out turf war erupts between the furballs.
It seems the three felines have formed a Gang and decided the dog is from a rival faction. I didn't know what to expect when I follow the blood curdling yowls to my bedroom. What I did find was one, then two, then three cats calmly sashaying out from the cubbyhole behind my waterbed. The dog is nowhere to be found.
"Oh, Crap! I don't have time for this..." I think as I begin the hunt for her.
But as soon as the coast was clear, the big sissy crawls out from that very same space and hides behind my legs. Thankfully, there are no injuries on either side of the skirmish.
Attempting to prepare for my doctor's appointment without tripping over the dog, I choose lightweight clothing, sans jewellry and skip breakfast -- I'll try anything to avoid the gasps of horror from the nurse and a stern lecture from the Doc when I step on their scale.
But when I'm finally called, I'm delighted to be taken straight to the exam room.
Right past the evil and highly embarrasing Weigh In Station.
"Oh Crap!" I think to myself. "I could have eaten brekkie after all..."
"...and worn a sweater and my watch."
Prescription in hand, me and my grumbling stomach get out of there about noon.
It takes forever to get in to work, stuck behind all the daytime drivers who won't go any faster than 30 Km/hour.
"Oh Crap!" I have a lot of assignments to get done today.
When I finally arrive, I soon discover that the network is down. All the jobs I had planned required access to offsite servers. Of course.
"Oh Crap!" I'm so glad I wasted my evening doing all that prepartory work at home last night.
Thankfully the afternoon passes quickly and soon it's quittin' time.
And that's when I look down to discover I've been walking around all day with my fly unzipped.
Just the perfect ending to a Crappy Day.
