If things don’t work out for me in my current line of work, I have some options. Consider the following.
a) I phoned the non-emergency number because I saw a man walking down the street with a gun on his right hip. It seemed very odd and out of place. The police said they’d dispatch an officer. I was told by a neighbor, who happens to be a prosecutor, within the city limits of Seattle it’s not illegal to wear your holstered gun, provided it’s registered and not loaded. I’m not really in the business of learning either facts.
b) I may have sent a text message to someone about litter in our streets. I get sort of pissy about rubbish not being properly maintained.
Both stories highlight a part of me that feels the need to get involved. Sometimes this is good and sometimes it’s not so good.
Weather, can you blog about the weather? Well I’m going to since it was 94 degrees in Seattle on Monday and it’s supposed to be 97 on Tuesday and remain in the mid 90s through Thursday. Did you know bees love heat? I’m fairly certain we have at least one wasp nest in our attic. If I never see a wasp again, I will be okay with that. NOTE: I do love bumble bees and honey bees. Wasps are not my friends though.
Quiz: there are two cities in the U.S. that have never reached zero degrees and 100 degrees, that would be Fahrenheit. I’m sure you’ve figured out Seattle is one of those ciites. However, can you tell me the other one? The winner gets an iPhone sock.
Around Town: this weekend we will be celebrating my daughter’s second birthday. Her birthday isn’t quite next weekend, still I can’t believe two years have ticked away. What has happened to me since then? What’s up with my blog? Am I still doing triathlons? Let me answer the triathlon bit right away… I did one about a week ago and did alright considering my utter lack of training. The Chicago relatives in-laws will be here to join in the festivities. Our little girl isn’t so little anymore. I wish you all well on this lovely Tuesday!
