    For some laughs. P is on a zoom meeting all day basically. Earlier, I was getting dressed and realized I left my bag in the living room (arrived last night). Half naked, I snake-crawled down the hall and dragged the bag towards the bedroom.

    P: (watches me for a few sec) Love, I don't have my camera on. Or my mic for that matter.
    Me: (standing and trying to look dignified) oh, well good then. Glad to be of service.

    Fuckity fuck fuck me fuck. I’m an idiot. We are emailing with our credit union. They looped in a new person and he asked several questions but answered them as he went except two (Are you members. Do you have a trust).

    I wrote back “We are members. No trust!”

    The main guy emailed me back “I’m sorry if we upset you m’am this is *Bob and hes helping with your account”

    I was like ????

    Read back my email and I sound like a lunatic.

    Gave my self contact dermatitis by getting some mold growth under my watch with all the hand washing. It's healing now that I took the watch off, and it's not too crazy, just had to make light of it. The watch is waterproof so I usually never take it off (though I have been swabbing it with alcohol)

    I was in line at the market and the cashier and a customer were talking about things they do to naturally boost their immune systems. A lot of it was alternative medicine woo bullshit, but the customer at one point talked about how her and her whole family would use Neti pots. At that point I chimed in.
    “Do you use distilled water?”
    “No. We use tap water.”
    “You want to use distilled water. A woman in Seattle used filtered tap water and got her brain eaten by amoebas.”

    When I got home I told rooster this story. Knowing I can’t abide alternative medicine, he asked me if I said that to shit on the lady.
    ”No! It was a well intentioned PSA!”

    W asked if everything was ok downstairs because he heard yelling. Oh, no, just me going nuts during the last 4 minutes of the 1983 NCAA championship game. (On a less funny note, of all the stress of the last few weeks, watching NC State pull off the win is what made me lose it completely. Such good kids. Such a simpler time.)

    I'm getting through this shortened NBA season thanks to some angel on r/Kings who compiled a directory of old games and highlight reels to watch online. It's not the same, but I appreciate the effort.

    Also, Reggie Miller's 30 for 30 is a delicious watch. He's a much more enjoyable villain (antihero?) than Christian Laettner.

    Oh yes. And he is her biggest fan which is one of the reasons I’m a fan of his.

    This one is my sister's. She's been really into puzzles all winter, and ordered a new one online, of the solar system. She was very excited.

    It is a 48 piece Melissa and Doug children's puzzle.

    :lol: I’ve done that one, and it’s a nice way to spend maybe 30-60 minutes with a 4-year-old.

    B: You'll be excited by one of the things I got at the liquor store! Face masks!
    Me: Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
    B: Yeah, they're the fancy kind. Not by 3M, but its good to have them.
    Me: Oh. Ok. I thought you meant, like, facemasks for skincare. That's why I was so excited.

    Calling an owner after examining his dog Fuffy (names changed for privacy)

    Owner: Hi, this is Bob.
    Me: Hi, this is Fluffy.
    Owner: OMJG Fluffy, you can talk!!
    Me: I'm so sorry, it's been a long few weeks here.

    Truly the best possible outcome for that, though.

    Luckily the dog was just limping yesterday and fine today. So while still awkward, could have been much worse.
