Crawl In? or Out?
6 May 1999
4:14 PM: Wow, bagels this morning, Starburst or Caramello for Snack!, and now about the 4th or 5th pizza that I've seen around here today. I think they're fattening us up to take to market. I better learn a skill, quick. I wonder if you can herd marketing people...
Ewww, a true moment of ick this morning. I have one of those rubber hair trap hat things that go over the drain in the tub, and as usual, I started the water running out of the tap to warm up and only then remembered that I should clear the hair away. So I bend down to pick it up, and notice this big red rubber band that's been cut in half, swirling around in the water. That's funny, I wonder where a rubber band could have come from? Hey, wait a minute. It's moving. On its own.
It was a big red worm. In my bathtub! Did it come up out of the drain? Did it fall out of the tap? Did it blow in through the partially open window? It was really blood red, too. I kept thinking, "Ew, ew, bloodworm, bloodworm!" Though I have no idea if there is such a thing or not. Sounds right. It just has way too many implications in every direction. Certainly not the kind I want to follow when I'm trying to wake up. Or any other time, to be honest. Bleck.
Willfully blind self-indulgent nebbish or amusingly quirky old coot? And how bout that local sports team? Discuss among yourselves.
All names are fake, most places are real, the author is definitely unreliable but it's all in good fun. Yep.
