    I looked at the lyrics -


    "I don't want to start any blasphemous rumours,

    But I think God's got

    a sick sense of humor

    and when I die I expect to find

    Him laughing."


    That's pretty close, but I'm thinking more like an old girlfriend or something.

The guy came, got out of the truck, shook my hand, and told me he forgot the sewer machine and had to go get it. An hour later he came back with the machine, put the snake in the cleanout, and the cable broke. Fortunately, it stayed together enough so he was able to pull it out of the sewer by hand. After a long argument with his boss on the phone he took off again for an hour and came back with another machine with which he was finally able to clean the line.

    geez.

    Today has been horrible. One bad thing after another. My mother just found out her lifelong best friend passed away and is taking it hard. Taking her to her hair appointment, someone started following us. I drove around until thank God I saw a cop sitting in his car and drove toward him, at which point the car following us took off.
    My mother's hairdresser is totally stressed out, wants to retire, and has started being kind of mean to her customers. She works 1 morning a week and has 5 customers.
    My mother doesn't need this so I am probably going to have to find her another beauty shop, which will stress Mom out bad; and it's not the time to do that.

    It's only 9:30, and I have to work today....what else will happen?

    I should not have posed the question. I have to replace security lights on a commercial building - the units themselves not just the bulbs. I could have had it just about done by now, but the owner of the building wants to be there for some unknown reason and will not be there until about noon.

    On television today is the semifinals of the Indian Wells tennis tournament, with Federer against Nadal, perhaps one of the last time we will see them play each other. I so wanted to see this live, but guess when it comes on? That's right, noon.

    I'm running out of exasperated emojis to post.

    ...and it continues. I get my work mostly done and delay the rest 'til tomorrow, get home in time to see the match, and then learn Nadal withdrew at the last minute due to injury.

    The Final, Federer vs. Thiem, will not be televised here. And now I have to work tomorrow too.

    It was some weird guy in a porkpie hat & a goatee telling him to "tread lightly."

    I can't carry 'cause legal problems from a misspent youth. The guy was going like 15 mph so I went around him with plenty of room but he decided to take umbrage anyway and followed on my bumper. Considering half the cars on the road here have guns and crazy road rage people the only choice is to run and lose him or find a cop. Losing him I could and would have done - but not with Mom in the car unless it became really dangerous.
    I became Bond and did it well; Mom barely knew I was in survive mode and at no point did I allow us to be trapped at a stop etc. before I found said cop.

    I'm going to try to forget yesterday it was a bitch.

    New Mexico, at the forefront of Liberal causes, has failed again to legalize pot.

    Now if you get caught with up to 1/2 oz. it's a civil fine. Jail if you grow or sell it. Another no-sense law for a no-sense State. It's more ok if you have it, but to have it you must commit an illegal and jailable act.
