Unrunning

A few things unrunning.

Bedtime Story

First of all, if you ever wanted to get a little insight about the daily lives and interactions between the Redhead and myself, then enjoy this little recap. The identities have been removed to prevent the tarnishing of either party's reputation. One party unjustly claims that the other 'bigger' party is a cover hog. The other party adamantly protests and says there is no evidence to prove such an unjust act. The alleged aggrieved party insists the 'bigger' party is a brute and takes said covers purposefully. To which the 'bigger' party responds that control over the covers is war. Plain and simple...an all out war every night.

What Goes Around

Several weeks ago the powers that be decided that I would hit a patch of black ice and send my top-heavy SUV spinning at 70mph on a highway. The roads were clear up to that point, and it was at 5:30am. Fortunately, I put said SUV into the concrete wall (as oppose to going into the ditch and likely rolling like one of Ren and Stimpy's logs). Several kind strangers helped me that day. So, today, it was my turn to help out several strangers. Armed with nothing more than a new all-wheel-drive crossover and a shovel, I helped dig out four different cars at various points today. I did this because I believe I owe Karma something. Also, I'm using said kindness as a reason to not do a 5M maintenance run today.



Too Much What

During the lunch break at the company retreat, I went directly to the desert table to secure the best of what was offered. A coworker saw my triple chocolate cheesecake and said that there was too much chocolate. Believing ignorance must always be fought instantaneously and with the power of enlightenment, I informed her that saying such a thing is like saying someone gives you too much joy. I also told her I would accept her apology.

Sorry to hear about your SUV. Kudos for spreading the good Karma. Sounds like the polar opposite of helping people get unstuck from the beach sand in the summer!

If only your readers could hear your giggling as you formulated this post...

I have a feeling I know who is going to win that war.

And way to give Karma a little payback. You really are a nice guy.

Hm. Odd that you posted Log cause we are currently working on Proof of Graduation or POG here at work. And we've decided to start singing "It's POG, POG..." periodically throughout the day. Yeah, you needed to know all of that.

BTW - I believe Morgan is too small to steal your covers.

Morgan steal HIS covers? Uh yeah I don't believe that she's a bitty little thing. Sorry about the SUV! BOOO! Great guy digging out others though!
