Allergic to Everything - don't follow me..
Follow me by =5yearcheddar
Probably due to all the allergy-inducing particulates in the air these days, I woke up late feeling somewhat shitty yet also in need of getting stuff done like fixing my fence.
Casey probably accomplished more than I today.
I’d like to get back to the book I wasted time on so I’ll keep it short. I measured the various dimensions of my fence that has been broken since January and puzzled over the ways it might be fixed, but it was too hot to think too much about. After returning to more manageable stuff I hate to deal with yet do – like laundry and toilet cleaning – I realized the hardware store would soon close and the fence would not be remotely fixed.
When I reached the hardware/lumber store all I really cared about was a few strong pieces of wood to hold my fence up for now. Well, I found some sweet deals in the misfit bargain area and left having paid only $3.20.
One of the pieces of redwood was particularly long and challenging to fit in the car so a Rosie the riveter sort of lesbian circa my mom’s era gave me a hand – and broke the future fence post in the process. Itwasallgood though because Rosie the Riveter knew that hardware store backwards and forwards and called the sales guy over to replace the broken one with a decent one. Perhaps she didn’t realize I was only foraging through the cheap crappy pile in the first place, but I left with some pretty solid future fence posts.
