Weekend To-Do: Post-Mortem

  • Help move refrigerator, stove. Use tools. Narrowly avoid self-inflicted injury.
  • Help erect fence. Feel disproportionately manly.
  • Lead music at church. Fail to drive congregants to apostasy or evacuation, in spite of usual fears.
  • Endure three hundred twenty second continuous day of rain. Wonder who moved San Marcos to England without telling me.
  • Watch fireworks from semi-illicit perch in top of library. Enjoy six-year-old’s observation: “I just saw a bird explode!”
  • Carry projector and screen 1.5 miles on foot, resolving any lingering doubts about own sanity.
