DLand - Tub Safety Rules

My butt hurts. Don't think this is all gonna be some self-pitying rant about my pain and suffering. I'm in a pretty good mood, all things considered. Just keepin' the public informed on my health concerns. See I was in the tub scrubbing the sand and coal dust off the bottom of it. And I decided that the best way to do this was on my hands and knees in the tub. I was originally going to just shave my legs but didn't want to sit in aforementioned sand and coal dust. Well, Tilex is slippery and my legs buckled, I toppled backwards and I badly scraped/bruised my right butt cheek on the tub faucet. Life is funny sometimes. In retrospect, it's pretty weird - almost funny. But at the time it was just the whipped cream topping on the turd pie my day was shaping up to be.

So, what are you gonna do? Jeremy was downstairs in the garage and was expecting me to take a shower anyways. I could have bled to death before he even realized I was missing. So I just soldiered up and continued cleaning the tub through the "goddammit" tears. Grr. Still managed to shave my legs. But the towel I had in the bathroom was covered in dog hair for some unknown reason so when I tried to dry off I ended up looking like and extra for Planet of the Apes. This was about the time Jeremy came to check on me and I threw the offending towel at him and requested a new one while I sulked in the remaining tub water.

I have two cute little bandaids on my butt, though, courtesy of Sweetpea.

I'm on the road again - this time in Massachusetts. I told the guy at the ticket counter that I was going to BDL. He just looked at me and blinked. Then he got this wry smile and said, "Are you leaving ORF and flying through PHL?" I said, "Yes. Exactly. Leaving at 5:50." I could not for the life of me remember the name of my arriving city. Hartford. That's right. Bah. It's all the same.

My wake-up call comes early tomorrow and I'm still at BDL and not in the BOS area like I should be, so the cosmic entry will wait til another day. Be careful in the shower, folks. Use the buddy system if you have to.
