I wasn't having a bad day. In fact, I was having a great one. Something had to be amiss, so I balanced my karma by making an 80 year old grandmother go outside and sweep leaves in a gusty fifty degrees.
Actually, she agreed so she could loosen up her back. She was going to a job interview about thirty years ago and rolled her car a few times. She called the company she was going to interview with and told them she was going to be a bit late, then walked out of the hospital with a broken back (!!!1!!) and made it a mere 45 minutes late. Got the job.
Know how she met her husband? Roller derby, of course. Thirty years, three kids. Does on a Dairy Queen napkin what District does on his laptop, then shows him his mistakes.
I keep telling people they grow them bigger now, but tougher then.
