What I actually said was CAC! (you may need to brush up on your Gaelic).
I know a fair bit about blood spatter, such as the greater the height from which a drop falls, the more it will spray out in a star-like shape. Let me tell you, blood has NOTHING on goose crap from 50 feet.
The jacket was going to have to go to the cleaners, probably the pants as well. I had no choice but to change into my only other clean suit, the "oh we are so going to lose" brown one. I'm not saying it was ugly or out of date, but. . .
One of those stops was the car wash to get rid of the goose spatter. The bat truck was ever so shiny as I pulled out onto the road.
Honk honk honk! No, I hadn't cut anyone off.
Damnú ort geese!
Days like these it's just best to go work out and get rid of some stress. I usually do 90 minutes with a personal trainer on Thursday, repeating the reps on my own on Saturday and Monday, but why not go to the gym tonight.
The last stop, the grocery store. As I enter the store, I see an older gent with a beard and a cane having trouble with one of the powered cart. It looked like he'd had knee surgery, so I figured he was new to the carts. I stopped and helped him, telling him I'd had to use one recently and then, with a conspiratorial wink said: "don't go too fast, they track your activities".
I lost him in the Tampax aisle.
Quick! To the parking lot!
Honk! Oh good, I just cut someone off. There's the finger! Wave!
But isn't it better to get out there as you are, to take chances, to fight, then to sit home on the couch, living on the sweat of the taxpayer or simply your own inertia, until nothing is left of you but silent, sentient meat that knows not the difference between trial and triumph?
So for me, I'll get up, get out, get dirty, get bloody and occasionally make a complete fool out of myself. Then I will come home with a smile, for I have lived. Then I can simply sit with those two souls that share this house that love me and tell them everything (even if one of them looks at me like "Blah Blah ABBY, Blah Blah ABBY).
