Curses, Foiled Again

The rain didn't begin until afternoon, but it quickly grew so intense that my shopping trip had to be postponed. I will make another attempt tomorrow afternoon, which, after a rainy morning, might be between storms. The rain will return tomorrow night and could include another thunderstorm. If the thunderstorm come early and I'm still out shopping, I might get struck by lightning instead of just getting wet.

Probably not, of course, but just as someone will beat the high odds and win the lottery, someone will sometimes beat the higher odds and get fried by nature's electricity. I've never won the lottery, but then I've never bought a ticket. One need not buy a ticket to get zapped. Nature is a non-optional gamble.

If I am not dead from lightning by then, I'll be going to the chiropractor Tuesday. The five week gap between appointments has left my neck pretty touchy, and I have to be careful when moving about, so I'm eagerly anticipating the adjustment. Perhaps it will make the last half of April more pleasant than the first half was.

I seem to be running late tonight, despite the two hours I gained by not going shopping. I'm going to have some ramen for dinner, as my original plan was to buy tonight's dinner at Safeway. The best laid plans, etc., April April April.
