It's Murphy's Laws all the way down


When I am working on the automated check in machine, the degree to which I am hungry determines how many cookbooks are returned.

If I am hungry enough the machine will even refuse to check these books in so that I have to handle them over and over. I am, in fact, so hungry right now that I have run the same book through the check in machine probably thirty times, on each occasion longing after the simple but wonderful pasta cut of pie so beautifully photographed on its cover. 

And, alas, I am now too weak with hunger to even check the book in on a computer and throw it in its appropriate bin, and finally end my fruitless cycle of pain.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
