Jack Murphy's Other Day Off
Had a couple of interesting quick exchanges with my wife. The first one we talked about the handicapped parking placard that we got on behalf of my son's temporary wheelchair status.
Her: So, have you ever used it without (our son) in the car?
Me: Hell no. That's bad karma.
Her: Me neither.
It's true; once you start using a handicapped spot without having the actual handicapped person in the car, you're just asking for the seagull of karma to take a big ol' crap on your head.
The other exchange came when she was on the front porch, having a smoke. I turned on just the Christmas lights, to show them off. She told me to turn them off. I wanted her to give me her opinion of them, but her objection is that it isn't even Thanksgiving yet. "Besides," she said, "I saw the picture of them on your blog!!" I told her that photo didn't really do them justice.
Tomorrow, back to work for one day (at one of my favorite clients, in Romeoville), then it's off to the Beat Kitchen to see my two most favorite Chicago bands, the Safes and the Differents!! Like I said, look for me; I'll be there with bells on!!!!!
