Captain’s Log 5,949
I’m waiting for the big storm! I’m WAAAAAAIIIIITTTTTTIIIINGGGGG!
I sat in my office all day wearing a yellow rain slicker – feeling like a ninny.
I thought the park would like like this by now. Alas. The sidewalks are barely wet.
So whatever. I guess I will go home and sit on the couch and wait for the rain to start pounding on the skylights. No need to keep wearing my slicker once I get home. At least I HOPE not.
I ate breakfast AND lunch today. That is rare. I cannot even remember the last time I ate three meals in a day. I really cannot handle that much food in 24 hours. Not anymore. Getting older has certainly made my grocery bills smaller. I guess that’s a good thing. I don’t wash my hair every day anymore either. All these cost-effective tricks that still let you go out into the world looking like you know what you are doing and still smelling good.
Getting by on less food also makes me more desirable as a companion for that famous desert island we are all going to. In addition to a Swiss army knife and complete works of Shakespeare, I really hope most people would pick me. I don’t have to eat all the time and I can tie excellent knots. I also know a lot of stories that would keep us content by the fires we light at night to keep the predators away. I see all of that as extremely valuable.
So I think I will go home and get into slippers and jammies and settle in for a comfortable night with this book.
Really interesting concept. I knew from the second page that I was reading the work of a master.
So think about the desert island. I can send a resume if that will help you with your decision. No, let me include it here.
