The Keep Her Away from Glass Edition
It was another weekend with lots of rain and tornados here. Some people living close to the river had to be rescued. Luckily I live on high ground. Then in a little bit of irony, some construction workers hit a water main in one of the adjoining towns. Even the hospital was without water for a most of the day.
It was a good weekend for staying inside and looking through old photos. I came across this photo of me as a kid on a pony. It’s one of my favorite photos.
I’m not sure how old I was. I know my family always said I didn’t start growing any hair on my head until I was about two years old. (Trust me, I’ve made up for it since then.) I remember a man came through the neighborhood with a pony offering to take pictures and how excited I was.
All of this is a blatant attempt at distraction from my accident-prone self these days, at least when it comes to glass. I broke my glass coffee pot today. This is my second one in little over a month. Maybe I should consider getting something in stainless steel next time. Then on my way to work about a week ago, a car making a turn kicked up a rock that made a ding in my windshield. It wasn’t too bad, though, and looked fixable. Luckily I didn’t do anything about it because this week another car kicked up another rock at almost the same spot in the road. Except this time, it hit at the edge of the windshield and caused a major crack. (whimper) I think I’ll try to avoid anything made out of glass for a while. I think someone should invent clear rubber windshield.
