Okay, I know I’ve been off the bloggy radar of late—this play is taking up all my time. We open tomorrow night…. [oh crap!—I have to do this in front of people.]
Anywho, things have been bubbling along. But there is a trend that is really boggling my mind—and amusing me at the same time.
There are 3 recent events that started this train of thought:
◊ We purchased a floor fan for my mothers bedroom.
◊ Our landlords replaced the A/C unit in my bedroom because it only worked on one setting and it was making a popping noise.
◊ I purchased a newer car—a 2001 Honda Civic.
E, you ask, “What do these three things have to do with each other [other than your contribution to ending the recession]? “
Well, I’ll tell you—the fan and the air conditioner both came with remote controls and the car has automatic door locks and windows.
AMERICA—this is why we are so out of shape!!! Good god people, are we no longer capable of rolling a car window up and down on our own? Can we not walk across the room to:
a) Change channels
b) Turn the frickin TV on or off
c) Turn a fan or air conditioner off
Just stew on that for a bit—I’ll be back later….. I’m gonna go channel surf.
finally, a post that is NOT about the flooding or demolition or clean-up - I did a little night photography earlier in the summer over the course of about two weeks when I happened out in the little backyard at twilight, not quit...
